Sky customers will soon be able to catch-up with programming from four extra channels, bringing on-demand access to big hitters such as The Walking Dead and Law and Order.
'Later this summer', all Sky customers will be able to watch the pick of Fox, Universal and Syfy’s programming via Sky’s On-Demand service for the first time. There will be no extra charge for the new channels.
Sky subscribers who are signed up to the Entertainment Extra pack also get Disney’s output on demand too.
And in another sweetener (it’s almost as Sky is having to really fight for its patch in the face of the fresh challenge from BT Sport, no?), Sky has announced plans to update the Sky Go app for smartphones and tablets.
The redesigned application will purportedly offer simpler navigation, with larger thumbnails intended to make it easier to find programs to watch while on the go.
Luke Bradley-Jones, Director of TV Products at Sky, said: “This summer we’re adding even more channels into what is already the UK’s biggest catch up TV service.
“We’re also making it easier to find something great to watch when out and about and at the same time giving our customers even more choice about different screens to watch on.”
Sky also announced that Sky Multiroom will be able to use Sky Go Extra from July for free and that the Xbox Sky Go app for the Xbox will be getting a revamp imminently.
