Sky Deutschland launches Sky Snap
Sky Deutschland is expanding its on demand offering with the launch of Snap. This new online media library offers thousands of titles, from complete season box-sets of award-winning series, popular shows from the HBO library, blockbuster movies and an selection of children’s programmes, including exclusive highlights from the world of Disney.
The full range of content is available on demand via the web, iPad or Samsung Smart TV. The iPhone will be added soon, Samsung Galaxy products as well as other platforms and devices will follow. Many programs can be downloaded on the iPad and watched offline regardless of where the user is, and whether or not they are connected. Users who prefers a bigger screen can watch via the Samsung Smart TV app (as extension of a comprehensive partnership exclusively available until the end of 2014), or can transfer films and series directly from the iPad to the TV set via AirPlay on Apple TV.
Snap is available to those without a Sky Deutschland subscription as well.
Brian Sullivan, CEO Sky Deutschland noted that Sky pioneered the concept of a content rich, live and on-demand entertainment service with Sky Go, and as a result, Sky had become the largest OTT pay-TV service in Germany and Austria. “With Snap, we’re taking the next step, giving Sky customers and all entertainment fans the chance to enjoy a new selection of top quality content from the Sky Collection. Snap will bring Sky’s extensive editorial experience, outstanding programming quality and comprehensive partnerships with the world’s leading providers – such as HBO, Warner, Fox, Paramount and Disney – to a whole new audience. And for Sky customers, Snap provides a much deeper catalogue, with a chance to watch great series from the very beginning, and an even wider collection of great movies – all at an unbeatable price – the perfect complement to Sky Anytime and Sky Go. We couldn’t be happier to make Snap available just in time for Christmas, and rest assured, there is more to come in 2014.”
