Sky has inked deals to bring more online video content to Sky Q, its next-gen TV platform. The broadcaster has announced Barcroft TV, Electus and Funny or Die will be available to viewers in Sky Q's Online Video section.

Barcroft TV shows new and classic short-form factual films depicting 'the amazing side of life'. Categories include Natural World, Animal, Heart Warmers and Adventure Sports.

Electus Digital is home to popular YouTube channel CollegeHumor. It also owns Dorkly, the fastest-growing site in fandom culture.

Dorkly's series include 'Hardly Working' and 'Today in Nerd History'. Electus Digital's library content will also be available on Sky Q. This includes the series 'Jake and Amir', 'Troopers' and 'The Britishes'.

Funny or Die hosts comedy videos, with contributions from big names like Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Gosling and Helen Mirren.

These join Sky Q's previously announced streaming partners, including Conde Nast Entertainment (home to GQ, Vanity Fair, Vogue and Wired), GoPro, Red Bull Media House and Whistle Sports.

Sky Q offers 4K video, the ability to record four channels while you watch a fifth, and a new remote control. It will go on sale early this year, though Sky is yet to set an exact date.
