Sky Player strikes Humax deal
April 15, 2010
Sky has confirmed that its Sky Player service is to launch on the UK’s first Freeview HD box as part of an expansion across Humax’s new range of digital boxes. Viewers will soon be able to watch Sky programming live and on-demand in HD on the Humax HD-FOX T2, which launched in February 2010 and already supports the BBC iPlayer.
The deal will let Sky customers watch TV on sets in rooms around the home that don’t already have a Sky box. Existing Sky customers will be able to access the service, while new customers will need to subscribe to one of the various monthly deals.
