Sky Sports On Demand is launching a section dedicated to every Barclays Premier League club, allowing fans to catch up on programming and features on their club at any time.
For the first time, viewers will be able to choose from 20 different club sections in the on demand section on the Sky+HD box, offering fans a selection of programming featuring their favourite team.
The service will be introduced for the new football season and is part of Sky’s biggest ever season, including more of the games that matter from the Barclays Premier League and the launch of Sky Sports 5, the new home of European football.
The new club sections offer fans an easy way to find and watch the latest content on their favourite team. The sections will offer an ever increasing library from a range of content including:
Matches from the Barclays Premier League as shown live on Sky Sports
Interviews and documentaries featuring players and managers
Documentaries of legends and golden eras
Clips and features from Soccer AM and The Fantasy Football Club
Sky Sports Head of Football, Gary Hughes, said that for the first time, Sky Sports viewers could download and enjoy some of the best content dedicated to their team, whenever they want. “With massive growth in on demand TV viewing, we’re delighted to introduce this brand new service for Barclays Premier League fans. Fans of all 20 clubs will soon be able to watch the latest news and views on their club at any time, thanks to Sky Sports.”
Sky On Demand can be accessed by connected Sky customers allowing them to download a much richer range of content, including Britain’s biggest Catch Up TV service. As well as Box Sets of hit series, Sky customers can also rent or purchase movies through Sky Store.
All of this is available to customers through the home page on the Sky electronic programme guide (EPG), which showcases the full range of on demand content available to customers.
This season, Sky Sports will again offer what it describes as an “unrivalled” schedule of 116 live Premier League fixtures, providing viewers with more of the games that matter, more of the best experts and more of the best analysis.
