The news follows the launch of catch-up services for Watch, Gold, Dave and Alibi on Sky Go last year, meaning Sky TV customers can access UKTV’s entertainment shows on their TV or on a multitude of devices, whenever and wherever they desire.
Keith Porritt, Executive Director Commercial, said “The popularity of our channels has never been higher and we are committed to enabling viewers to watch our award-winning content whenever and wherever they like. Our agreement with Sky to provide catch up services for Watch, Gold, Dave and Alibi on Sky Go and now on connected Sky+HD boxes is UKTV’s first pay TV catch up deal. It is an important milestone in our continued drive to put our viewers at the heart of everything we do.”
Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s Brand Director of TV Products, commented: “Watch, Gold, Dave and Alibi today join the UK’s biggest Catch Up TV service – offering customers content from 60 channels to watch when it suits them. It’s all part of our continued commitment to provide our customers with a great TV experience whenever and wherever they want it, all at no extra cost.”
