sky+ tv guide update

Sky has refreshed its Sky+ TV Guide, making some small but very notable improvements to the layout.

First of all, the most recent recordings and downloads are at the top of the first page, instead of being buried at the end of the planner. So now you won't have to scroll past old episodes of 'Bergerac' and 'The Chase' to get to a recent show.

Upcoming recordings are now in a new page called Scheduled. This also includes Smart Series Links, which not only record every episode of the current season, but also future seasons when they air. You won't have to lift a finger.

It's also easier to clear space on your hard drive. A yellow Delete All button lets you clear out entire boxsets in one go, so no more ploughing through every episode of 'Game of Thrones' deleting them individually.

So what else is new? You can watch fullscreen trailers for hundreds of films from Sky Movies and Sky Store. There's a new accessible setting for partially sighted customers (with better contrast and bold lettering) – Sky worked with the RNIB to develop this feature. The Family setting hides all adult channels, pin protects all pre-watershed playback of on-demand content and films rated 12 or above, and all Sky Store purchases. And Eco Mode has been extended by 50 per cent, automatically switching the box off from 2:45-5:45am to save energy.

The update is rolling out now.
