2014 was a record year for Sky On Demand viewing, as thousands more homes connected their broadband and TV set-top box.

Sky received almost two billion download and streaming requests from customers in the UK and Ireland last year - around 60 requests per second.

This was up by almost 50 per cent on the number of downloads and streams in 2013, revealing the popularity of online, on-demand content continues to rise.

At the end of 2014, 6.5 million customers were connected to Sky On Demand and 5.8 million had registered to use the mobile TV service Sky Go.

Sky Box Sets are also going from strength to strength, with more than 130 programme collections now available.

The most popular in 2014, in order were 'Game of Thrones', 'The Blacklist', 'The Walking Dead', 'The Inbetweeners' and 'Boardwalk Empire'.

'Ray Donovan', 'Prison Break', 'The Following', 'True Blood' and 'Penny Dreadful' complete the Sky Box Sets top ten for last year.

Luke Bradley Jones, Sky’s Director of TV Products, said the firm knows consumers want to watch TV on their own terms.

He said this is why Sky has helped over six million customers connect their box to broadband and get access to Sky On Demand.

"This year we’re adding even more box sets of the shows that everyone’s talking about," Mr Bradley Jones revealed.

"[We're] giving people the chance to enjoy some of TV’s biggest hits like 'Fortitude', 'Broadchurch' and 'True Detective', ready to watch whenever they want."
