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


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


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.

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]
