Sky is one of the largest streaming providers in Germany. With the subscription or the monthly cancelable Sky Ticket, users can stream a lot of films and the latest series. TECHNOLOGY BUTTON reveals which Sky innovations await us in May.
The large Sky subscription and the Sky ticket can be used both as an annual subscription and as a monthly package that can be canceled. The provider bundles the series via Sky Entertainment, while film fans can find suitable content at Sky Cinema. After the changeover in July 2020, the latter is no longer available as a single package. If you want to watch films on Sky, you have to book the “Sky Entertainment and Cinema” package. The pay TV and streaming provider is regularly expanding the packages. In May 2021, Sky will again have some innovations in the program. TECHNOLOGY BUTTON gives an overview of the new program.

The American improvisation sitcom “Curb Your Enthusiasm” Is finally getting a tenth season. The series tells partly real, partly fictitious about the everyday life of the “Seinfeld” co-inventor Larry David. He and his wife (Cheryl Hines) live in an affluent part of LA, have a large group of friends and are socially involved. In the 30 to 60 minute episodes, humorous subliminal social criticism plays a major role. There is a thematic script, but the dialogues are all improvised. Incidentally, an eleventh season has already been commissioned.
Tenet (since April 23)
The action sci-fi film “Tenet” by Christopher Nolan was one of the most successful, but also most discussed films of 2020. A nameless CIA agent (John David Washington) becomes a member of a secret organization that wants to prevent World War III. In doing so, they repeatedly come across mysterious objects from the future that move backwards through time. Together with his partner (Robert Pattinson), the protagonist sets out to prevent the war of the times. Also part of the party: Kenneth Branagh as the villain.
