4oD joins Sky catch-up
From March 18th Sky customers will see 4oD, Channel 4′s VoD service, added to Sky’s On Demand service.
The upgrade comes at no charge for Sky customers who have connected their Sky+HD box to broadband and can download catch-up content at a push of a button.
With the launch of 4oD, catch-up content from Channel 4’s portfolio of channels – including Channel 4, E4 and More 4 – will be available alongside hundreds of hours of content from Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Living, Sky Arts, the BBC, ITV, Channel 5, the History Channel, National Geographic and others.
In addition to joining the On Demand service on Sky+, Channel 4 is also the first terrestrial network to offer its channels and programmes on Sky Go, Sky’s Internet and mobile TV service. Sky Go users will be able to enjoy Channel 4 and More4 live on their laptop, smartphone, or tablet, with E4 and Film4 to follow shortly.
In addition, a range of classic Channel 4 shows will be available within the On Demand section of Sky Go. For Sky customers who upgrade to Sky Go Extra, those Channel 4 shows can be downloaded to watch offline, so they can enjoy TV on the move even when they’re not connected to the Tnternet.
Additionally, More4 HD is joining Sky’s line-up of HD channels. Film4 HD will floow suit in September.
