(Pocket-lint) - Sky Q customers now have complete access to Netflix through their set-top-boxes. The Netflix app is now in the App section and an all-new Ultimate On Demand subscription is available.

Customers who subscribe to the Ultimate On Demand package can get Netflix content throughout the user interface on their boxes.

A dedicated Netflix app is also available for current Netflix subscribers who don't want the new package.

As an incentive though, Ultimate On Demand includes a monthly Netflix subscription plus access to Sky Box Sets - Sky's own on demand service that offers 400 UK and US TV series to binge on.

The combined cost for Ultimate On Demand is £10 per month, while a Netflix Premium subscription on its own is £9.99 per month. Sky Box Sets currently costs £5 per month as a separate service.

The type of Netflix subscription on offer depends on your Sky Q package. New and existing customers on Sky Q Entertainment packages, with the 1TB box, will essentially get Netflix Standard - which provides up to HD video and can be viewed on two screens concurrently.

New and existing customers on the Sky Q Experience package (formerly Sky Q Multiscreen), with a 2TB box, get Premium - up to 4K video on four screens concurrently.

There is no HDR support at present, but Pocket-lint was told that it is in the pipeline.

Existing Netflix users can switch their accounts over to Ultimate On Demand without losing any historical data or profiles.

As well as Netflix, other new UI features coming to Sky Q to be added in the latest update include the ability to filter your recordings by different categories: entertainment, movies, kids or into an A-Z list.

The main Home screen on Sky Q also now sports hero artwork at the top of the page, which includes Netflix shows if you subscribe to Ultimate On Demand.

You will be soon able to open apps through voice. It will work with Netflix, Spotify, YouTube, Vevo and any other app on the platform.

And the long-awaited Kids Mode is imminent, along with more personalisation in Sky Cinema and the Sky Store, with movie suggestions appearing based on the films you have already watched.
