Sky Celebrates 25 Years

Thousands of Kiwis Keen to Snap up Ultimate Fan Experiences as Sky Celebrates 25 Years

New York, London, Milan, King’s Landing....tens of thousands of SKY customers are snapping up the chance to win an ultimate fan experience as SKY celebrates its 25th birthday.

The anniversary competition opened on Wednesday 15 July and, in the first week, more than 41,000 people have already entered one or more of the draws.

Of the 25 top flight prizes on offer, the most popular so far is the UKTV trip to London, followed by the BLACKCAPS trip to Perth, the Bledisloe Cup behind-the-scenes tour and the Game of Thrones location tour in Croatia.

“We’re blown away by the level of interest,” says SKY spokesperson Kirsty Way. “Our first Facebook post reached 167,000 people and our dedicated birthday site received 166,000 unique page views in just five days.”

Open to SKY’s 800,000-plus customers, the competition includes prizes to suit every fan, whether they’re into sport, movies, music, fishing, drama, kids’ shows, fashion or food. The longer someone has been a SKY customer, the more entries they get. Details can be found at

“We’ve been bringing Kiwis amazing TV for a quarter of a century and, whatever our customers enjoy on SKY, there’s a fantastic prize to match their tastes. We’ve always been proud to offer the widest and deepest range of content available in New Zealand and that breadth of coverage is reflected in our ‘ultimate bucket list’ of prizes,” says Way.

Most prizes are for set dates between August 2015 and January 2016 and will be drawn in three stages. Seven prizes will be drawn on 31 July 2015, nine on 7 August 2015 and the final nine on 14 August 2015. One prize can be won per customer and customers can enter as many of the 25 draws as they wish.
