Sky+ App Added to Android Phones

Sky+ Remote Record

Sky+ has become a must have luxury and not just for those who work odd hours or have busy schedules that prevent them from being able to watch their favourite shows when they’re first aired. The ability to record whole series at the touch of button is something that has become widely envied but Sky have managed to take it one step further, remote record. If you find yourself out and about but your favourite show is due to be aired in five minutes you can now use your mobile phone to instruct your Sky+ box at home to record said show. “The range of mobile applications that accompany Sky TV are hugely popular among users and if you haven’t already downloaded it yet, the Sky+ app for Android was updated yesterday to include the On Demand feature. Sky’s range of Android apps has recently been in the news for all the wrong reasons but normalservice was quickly resumed, and now the company has just updated the Sky+ application that allows users to schedule their set top box to record remotely. The update has now added listings for On Demand features and the user interface has been given a nice new feel to it, which has also brought an improved search feature that can scan TV listings via keywords and cast names instead of just the program title. Using the app you can check through the connected Sky box and its planner with what you have already recorded and what is scheduled to be recorded in the future, but this is dependent on the box being connected to the Internet. Users can also easily change the regional settings of the box to record various regions of ITV or BBC broadcasts or switch to another box if they have Multi Room. Hopefully now Sky has updated the Sky+ app it will shortly do the same for the Sky Go application that recently saw an update on the iOS platform that contains On Demand sport action for users to enjoy. Head over to Google Play if you have yet to download Sky+.” If you are a current Sky customer who does not have Sky+ or if you require any more information on any of the products Sky provide, either visit the Sky contact website or Sky by telephone and you will be greeted by a friendly and helpful Sky employee willing to assist you with any enquiry you may have.

    Consumer rights: what the new EU rules will meanConsumers 22-06-2011 - 15:11 Share / SaveSocial niktorweng sitesFacebookMySpaceTwitterFavoritesFavoritesDeliciousDiggGoogleLive An EU-wide right for consumers to change their minds about a purchase made on line within two weeks after having received the good, new requirements that compel on-line traders to provide the consumer with exact information on the total price, the goods ordered and the contact details of the trader, are among the benefits of the new Consumer Rights Directive. The new rules aim to strengthen protection for online buyers so as to boost consumer confidence and cross-border on-line trade.In 2010, 40% of EU consumers bought online goods and services over the internet in compared to 26% in 2006, making the internet the most frequently-used distance-selling medium today. However, only 7% of internet users have placed cross-border orders within the EU.Concerns about late or non-delivery of goods, as well as the patchwork fragmentation of Member States\' consumer protection rules, are holding consumers back from cross-border online shopping. Businesses, too, cite legislative differences among Member States as the main reason for not selling across borders.After two and half years of tough negotiations, Parliament\'s negotiating team, led by MEP Andreas Schwab (EPP,DE), managed to broker a well-balanced agreement with the Council to ensure clear and common rules on consumer rights across the EU. This deal was overwhelmingly approved by the Internal Market Committee on 16 June and in plenary on 23 June.Consumer rights: what the new EU rules will mean14 days to change your mind Share / SaveSocial niktorweng sitesFacebookMySpaceTwitterFavoritesFavoritesDeliciousDiggGoogleLive The new rules will stipulate a 14-day EU-wide withdrawal period for distance and off-premises sales (i.e. those in which the consumer cannot see the good before buying it), during which consumers may change their minds. If they regret the purchase, for whatever reason, they may return it. The price paid by the consumer for the good must be refunded within 14 days of the withdrawal. This is a major step forward for consumer rights.MEPs sought to insert a rule that would have required traders to pay the return costs of any goods priced above 40, but this proved unacceptable to the Council. Instead, MEPs proposed to Council, as a final offer, that the cost of returning any bulky item which cannot be returned by normal postage be clearly stated in the sales contract, so the consumer knows how much it will cost should he choose to return his purchase. If the trader does not comply with the information requirement, the consumer will not have to bear the costs.Moreover, if a seller fails to inform a consumer about the withdrawal right, the period for withdrawal will automatically be extended to one year, as originally proposed by Parliament.The new rules also aim to close a gap in existing EU legislation, by extending the consumer\'s right of withdrawal to home party sales and on-line auctions. However, auction purchases may be returned only if they were bought from a professional seller, not from a private person.
