Sky Magazine (or 'Sky Mag') is the magazine distributed to subscribers of the BSkyB satellite service Sky Digital.

Availability[edit]

The magazine was available to subscribers of the Variety Pack or all packs of entertainment.

Content[edit]

The magazines content varies from edition to edition, but on average will include:

  • Interviews with celebrities
  • Television listings & guide for Sky Movie and Sports channels
  • Program reviews and recommended viewing guides
  • Sky services, Adult channels and premium services advertising
  • Informing customers of service updates, pricing changes etc.

In recent years, popular consensus is that the quality of the content has decreased, and what was once a quality magazine, has lost channel guides, detailed channel listings and more quality interviews and program-related articles.

Spin off magazines[edit]

Sky has also published other magazines such as Sky Sports Magazine for Sky Sports subscribers and Sky Movies Magazine for viewers who subscribe to Sky Movies. Usually 3 magazines were published to viewers (sky mag, sky sports and sky movies) but as of December 2009 sky have redesigned a new look magazine which replaces all 3 existing magazines.

End of magazine[edit]

The magazine ceased publication in October 2011. The October/November edition was the final one. The publication was replaced by a Weekly Email.[1] This made some customers upset, and left Sky over the change.
