DECEMBER 2014

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Between parties, holiday planning and carols playing, there’s everything to love about this time of the year!

Of course, everyone needs to temper the excitement with some relaxation time and that’s where SKY comes in – we’ve got a massive line-up of movies, sport and entertainment this month so you can put your feet up and chill out.

Our hugely popular SKY Movies Family POP-UP is back with Frozen headlining a fantastic line-up. We also get into the Christmas spirit with SKY Movies 12 Days of Xmas POP-UP, bringing you movies the whole family will love. We’ve got something special lined up for the kids too with the brand new channel, Disney XD, launching on the 24th at 6am on Channel 103.

You’ll find plenty of great music across our entertainment channels. Tune in throughout the month to Robbie Williams, Susan Boyle and the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2014, and, if you can’t go past a good sing-along, The Sound Of Music is the perfect Christmas Eve viewing.

Sport also serves up a bumper month with the KFC Fight for Life, the Boxing Day test in Christchurch as well as darts, softball, tennis and much more.

We look ahead to big plans here at SKY in 2015 and give you a sneak peek into our new On Demand service. Favourite Kiwi cook Jo Seagar shares some festive recipes from her new book, and we chat to Melanie Lynskey and Elijah Wood about their new show coming to Cartoon Network.

Like most people, I’m looking forward to putting my feet up and enjoying a well-earned break at the beach. We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year – we’ll catch you again in 2015!
