What is The Pillars of the Earth about?

The Pillars of the Earth is set against a backdrop of war, religious strife and power struggles which tears lives and families apart. In that time, there rises a magnificent Cathedral in Kingsbridge. Against the backdrop, love-stories entwine: Tom, the master builder, Aliena, the noblewoman, the sadistic Lord William, Philip, the prior of Kingsbridge, Jack, the artist in stone work and Ellen, the woman from the forest who casts a curse. At once, this is a sensuous and enduring love story and an epic that shines with the fierce spirit of a passionate age. Follett masterfully weaves these stories through political turmoil of 12th century England, creating a relevant and viable world for today's audience and for generations to come.

Streaming on Sky Go

If you’re a Sky TV customer, you automatically have access to the Sky Go app. It’s a way to watch all your favourite Sky shows, movies and sport whilst on the move, or catch up on your favourite TV On Demand.

Got a question about Sky Go?

It depends on what type of Sky Plan you have when it comes to your Sky Go content. Everything that you pay for will be available to stream on the app, whether that’s Sky Comedy, Sky Sports or Sky Movies.
Sky Go is no longer available to stream outside of the UK and Ireland.
Basically, you can access all of the same content on both. However, Now TV is more practical as you don’t need a satellite installation and you can cancel at any time. Sky Go is perfect for those who watch the majority of their TV at home but like the option of streaming on other devices.
