Sky has launched a new subscription service which enables broadband customers to download film and TV content from the web to be viewed at a later date.

The broadband provider's Sky Go Extra service allows viewers to watch movies and TV programmes as and when they want, regardless of whether they are connected to the internet.

The service also allows Sky Go Extra customers to register for Sky Go on up to four, rather than two, internet-connected devices.

Available to Sky TV customers for just £5 per month, the offering delivers additional flexibility to broadband and TV subscribers.

Content can be downloaded to smartphones, tablets, laptops or MacBooks via a wireless broadband connection to be watched at a more convenient time - potentially in a different location.

The service builds upon Sky Go, which offers customers access to live and on-demand programmes and films from up to 43 channels.

Stephen van Rooyen, Managing Director of Sales & Marketing at Sky, said Sky Go Extra lets customers download great movies and TV shows to take with them to watch offline whenever and wherever suits them, as well as access to Sky Go on up to four internet-connected devices.

"Together with our comprehensive On Demand service and our range of award-winning apps, we continue to deliver helpful and innovative ways for Sky customers to enjoy even more flexibility over when, where and how they enjoy Sky," he stated.

During 2012, millions of Sky customers used Sky Go to watch movies on demand, with Bad Teacher, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Captain America: The First Avenger the three most popular movies on the service.

In addition, the service has notched up more than 2.5 million views of the second series of An Idiot Abroad and 1.1 million views of the latest season of Game of Thrones.
