On Demand TV explained...

TV on demand (TOD), also known as ‘video on demand’ or simply 'on-demand TV', is a revolutionary new digital television service that lets you watch pretty much anything you like, anytime you like.

TV on demand gives you the freedom to choose from hundreds, even thousands, of television programmes and films at your own convenience. You can watch entire seasons of your favourite shows or catch the year’s most popular big screen releases right in your living room without ever leaving the house.

Given our busy lifestyles, TV on demand is truly a blessing in the era of digital television, allowing us to enjoy the best entertainment out there without compromise.

TV on demand providers

Several of the UK’s biggest digital television providers operate TV on demand services. These are: Sky, Virgin Media, BT Vision and TalkTalk. Some of the popular and more affordable TV on demand services are also offered by services based online, such as Netflix, LoveFilm.

TV on demand services

The most popular TV on demand services right now are Sky Anytime+ (also knowns as Anytime Plus), Sky Now TV, Netflix and LoveFilm Instant.

Sky Anytime+ gives viewers access to hundreds of TV shows and films in an instant at no additional monthly cost for Sky TV customers. You can watch back-to-back episodes of series box sets, rent movies through your Sky+ HD box with Sky Store and access some of the latest blockbusters if you sign up for the Sky Movies pack.

Sky Now TV, on the other hand, is Sky’s standalone, internet TV on demand service that can be accessed using a computer, smartphone or games console. Designed for customers who do not have paid-for digital television, Now TV offers a huge library of content on pay as you go and pay monthly basis, including all 11 Sky Movies channels and five new premieres every week.

Netflix is an online TV on demand service that gives unlimited access to over 7000 movies and TV shows from an impressive range of genres for a flat monthly fee. Available in 1080p and 720p HD resolutions, Netflix content can be accessed using a wide range of devices, such as computers, smart televisions, games consoles, tablets and smartphones – making it truly on-demand - even on the move.

LoveFilm Instant is another internet TV on demand service, with a vast catalogue of 5500 films and TV episodes. Like Netflix and Now TV, this too is available on a monthly subscription, as well as a pay per view basis for quick and easy rentals. Accessible via a computer, smart television, Blu-ray player, PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 and the Apple iPad.

TV on demand devices

As mentioned before, on-demand TV services are available on a range of devices, from computers and laptops to video game consoles, smart televisions, Blu-ray players, tablets and smartphones.

However, there are also set-top boxes dedicated to offering numerous ways to watch TV on demand.

TiVo

TiVo is a digital video recorder (DVR) that enables you to record, pause and rewind live television – up to three programmes at once - to relive those unmissable moments over and over. Aside from access to some 175 live channels, you can catch up with programmes that have already aired and access thousands of hours of TV on demand.

Tired of missing out on your favourite series? With TiVo you can set-up ‘Wishlists’ for specific shows, directors and actors and it will automatically record them for you to watch at your leisure.

YouView

YouView is an Ofcom-endorsed set-top box that gives you unfettered access to an extensive array of digital terrestrial television channels, radio stations and on demand TV services using a broadband and/or aerial connection.

What’s more, it also doubles as a Personal Video Recorder (PVR), enabling you to record live television. You can also watch all the major catch-up TV services, including BBC iPlayer, 4OD, ITV Player and Demand 5.

Compare TV on Demand

The growing number of choices for TV on demand services can be slightly overwhelming at first. Our easy to use comparison table above will help you compare all these options in a clear, concise manner and pick the one that’s best suited to your needs.
