May not be but check with a different sim first.

Guide: Unlocking an O2 phone to use a different SIM card 

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

O2 don't usually lock handsets, however if it is you can request it is unlocked free of charge (request this before you cancel your account), you should get instructions within a couple of days.

On a side note Sky runs on O2 I think so you might be ok anyway

The S8 would have been locked when it was released as it was still policy at that time.
A sky SIM will not work in an O2 locked phone either, however, some phones at launch were not locked.
Best to try another SIM as I suggested earlier.
