Sky+ has added a raft of new features designed to make it simpler for customers to keep up with their favourite programmes.

An Auto Play function has been introduced as part of the update, meaning that when a person gets to the end of an episode, the next one will start up automatically if it has already been downloaded to their Planner.

Alternatively, viewers can simply press the green button at any point of a programme to get the next episode to start straight away.

A Catch Up Series Link function has also been added, enabling customers to set a series link on a Catch Up TV programme.

Users can also record future episodes of the programme so they can be confident of never missing an episode of their favourite show ever again.

Finally, Sky has added new accessibility features to the service, allowing customers to increase the font size of the writing displayed on Sky Q.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Director of TV and content products at Sky, commented: "We know our customers love the freedom to easily watch episode after episode of their favourite TV shows, which is why we continue to invest in new features for Sky+. 

"So whether it’s binge watching addictively good box sets like Billions and The Blacklist, or catching up on your favourite series, including Ray Donovan or A League Of Their Own, Auto Play and Catch Up Series Link give customers the flexibility to watch their favourite shows the way they want."

Sky added that the updates come just in time for viewers to make the most of its autumn schedule, which includes the likes of Sky original The Young Pope, hit US drama Westworld and comedy Divorce, featuring Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker.

The announcement comes shortly after Sky credited rising customer demand for its products and services for fuelling a five per cent increase in revenues in the UK and Ireland between July and September 2016.
