Sky TV goes online and mobile


Sky TV announced that from next month, all
Sky TV customers will have the opportunity to watch Sky channels and programs
on PCs, laptops, mobiles and tablets at no extra charge.

 

Available
free to all Sky TV customers, Sky Go
will provide flexible access to Sky content across multiple devices including
the iPhone, iPad, PC and Mac.  

 

Launched
on July 6th, it brings together two
existing services: Sky Player, Sky’s online TV
service, and Sky Mobile TV, the UK’s largest mobile TV service, with these
services rebranded as Sky Go.

 

Offering
even more value from the Sky subscription, this will allow customers to watch
live linear channels in line with their subscription while on the move in the
UK and Ireland.

 

Sky Go will give customers
yet more control and choice over how, when and where they enjoy Sky.  Each
Sky home will be entitled to register up to two devices, through which they can
enjoy access to live channels and selected on-demand content.

 

On
mobile and tablet devices, customers will be able to access all five Sky Sports
channels, ESPN and Sky News, with further channels to be added over time.

 

On
laptops and computers customers will be able to access more than 30 live channels,
including all five Sky Sports channels, Sky Movies, Sky News, Sky 1, Sky
Atlantic, Sky Arts, MTV, Disney, G.O.L.D,
Nickelodeon, NatGeo, History, Eden and ESPN, supported by an extensive library
of on-demand content.

 

“The explosion of smartphones and tablets
demonstrates the increasing consumer demand for accessing entertainment and
communicating on the move.   We have already responded to this by
offering a range of services, including live TV, across many new innovative
platforms and devices, like laptops and iPhones,” said 
Stephen van Rooyen, deputy MD of Sky’s Customer Group.

 

“Clearly the consumer appetite is there, and
it’s growing.  In responding to that, and to create even more value,
choice and flexibility for our customers, we are now going to offer online and
mobile access to Sky content at no extra charge. The future support of a
nationwide Wi-Fi network will help us supercharge that experience further
still,” Stephen added.
