Sky News Update: More Channels Added to SkyGo


Sky news update: Sky have added more channels and more programmes to their On Demand service, Sky Go. In order to remain contemporary and relevant in a society that is gradually demanding more luxuries are available totally at convenience, Sky have developed their mobile television and On Demand services. This means that provided the customer purchases a monthly Sky television contract, they can access Sky’s On Demand services on a minimum of two devices. The most recent channels to be added to the online system are E4 and Film4. The two channels which have stemmed off from Channel 4 join a further 47 channels that includes Sky Atlantic, Sky Living, all six Sky Sports channels – although access to these demands that the customer already buys into the ‘sports’ contract – Fox, SyFy and The Disney Channel. All of the channels are accessible to watch on two devices if you have a standard contract or customers can opt to purchase the rights to view these channels and their shows on up to five devices by subscribing to an additional small fee each month. This can be beneficial if you travel lots and have time to kill in hotels in the evening but do not use just one device all the time; the basic contract only permits one device switch per calendar month so it can get frustrating if you do not have one consistent device for viewing. These customers buy into a service called Sky Go Extra and it also allows customers to download the content that they choose to watch in order to view it later even without an internet connection. Thus, viewers have the option of either watching live TV, On Demand content or the catch-up service. Viewers who purchase the movies contract are also permitted access to more than 600 movies. The addition of these two channels now means the entire portfolio of Channel 4 is available to watch On Demand as Channel 4 itself as well as More4 were added earlier in 2013. E4’s presence on the platform now means viewers can enjoy ‘Peep Show’, ‘Black Books’ and ‘Misfits’ to name but a few. As an On Demand service, Sky Go currently has more than 3.3 million users per quarter but what’s more impressive is the expansive list of devices that these viewers choose to use for the purpose of viewing their favourite shows at their convenience. Some use their laptops but others use the Xbox 360 as well as a variety of other mobile devices including tablets. If the viewer opts to use the final option – a tablet or other mobile device – it is demanded that they download the SkyGo App. As opposed to using a laptop or desktop where viewers can acquire instant access to the On Demand service by visiting www.sky.com
