Sky Magazine (or 'Sky Mag') was a 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 varied from edition to edition, but tended to will include:

  • Interviews with celebrities
  • Television listings & guide for Sky Movie and Sports channels
  • Programme reviews and recommended viewing guides
  • Sky services, Adult channels and premium services advertising
  • Information regarding updates, price changes etc.

In its final years, popular consensus was that the quality of the content decreased. What was once a quality magazine had lost channel guides, detailed channel listings and more quality interviews and programme-related articles.

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.[2]
