New Sky Player
May 19, 2008
Sky has overhauled its online VOD service by adding streaming capabilities and rebranding it “Sky Player”. Sky said: “The online service will take on the Sky Player brand in recognition of the public's growing awareness of additional online video 'player' services.”
In addition, Sky non-subscribers can now access the same Sky Player interface – Sky Anytime on PC was previously only available to non-Sky customers via a separate website. Sky Player offers subscribers content from channels including Sky One, Sky Arts, and The History Channel, along with movies and sports clips. Unlike the BBC’s iPlayer, the service also offers live streams of several Sky channels.
