Sky+ app adds On Demand downloads on the go

December 3, 2013

An update to the Sky+ app has added the ability to download On Demand content straight to a Sky+HD box using a smartphone or tablet.

The Showcase, Catch Up TV, TV Box Sets and Sky Movies sections are now all available within the Sky+ app. To download content to their Sky+HD box, users simply need to press the ‘Download’ button within the app.

“The Sky+ app is incredibly popular with our customers. With over 2 million using the app every month and in October alone, over 2.4 million shows were set to record using the Sky+ app,” said Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s brand director of TV products. “We know the way our customers are watching TV is changing and On Demand has become much more popular. Over 3.4 millio homes with a Sky+HD box connected to broadband are now downloading around millions of On Demand shows and movies every week.”

The showcase section of the Sky+ app will update itself regardless of connection to a Sky+HD box. This means any new content added to On Demand will appear on the device’s screen regardless of its connection status.
