Where can I get Sky arts?

Sky Arts in high definition (HD) is only available as part of a Sky TV subscription or as part of a Now TV entertainment pass. However, at the time of writing Sky has made the standard definition version of the Sky Arts channel available for free via Freeview and Freesat. Here are the options available to you:


Via Freeview

Sky has made the standard definition version of Sky Arts available using just a Freeview set-top box or a Freeview-enabled Smart TV. Although this is nor in High-Definition version, the programme content is the same, it's just that the visual quality is slightly lower.

Since Sky Arts is now a Freeview channel, you can get it on any box, subscription or with any provider.


Using a games console

Sky Arts HD and SD are both available to view on your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 using the downloadable TV from the Sky app. However, you will need a Sky TV subscription. At the time of writing the Xbox Series X and Series S, and the PlayStation 5 Sky TV apps are unconfirmed. If you don't have a Sky TV subscription, the Xbox One also supports Now TV via a downloadable app so you can see Sky Arts using that.
