Sky is rolling out more updates to its Sky+ platform, and one means you'll never miss the start of a film again.

It's called Watch from Start. If you're flicking channels and you find a film you want to watch, but it's already halfway through, this is the tool for you. Just press the green button and it'll download the film so you can watch from the beginning. No more trying to follow the plot halfway through.

Other features also come as part of the update. More Like This is a movie recommendation service, and again, works with one click of a button. Press the yellow button, and it'll suggest other films you might like based on the title you've selected.

Watchlist is a personalised film library, basically like a wish list. When you're scrolling through what's available, you can click the green button when you see something you fancy and it'll be added to your Watchlist. Then just watch it later.

Later this year, Sky will also introduce Rotten Tomatoes Audience Scores as star ratings. Which should help you avoid the turkeys.

"This is just the latest in a series of enhancements we're rolling out every few months to make sure Sky+ continues to make TV watching a brilliant experience in homes up and down the country," said Luke Bradley-Jones, director of TV products at Sky. "And we're now introducing some clever new features that will make it even easier to find and enjoy a fantastic movie when you settle down on the sofa – including brand new 'Watch from Start' which makes missing the start of a film a thing of the past."
