BBC Sounds app joins Sky Q

January 12, 2021

The BBC Sounds app is now available to all Sky Q customers in the UK, offering more than 80,000 hours of audio content, including live BBC radio broadcasts, music mixes, and podcasts from the likes of Joe Wicks, Stacey Dooley, Louis Theroux and George the Poet.

To open the app, customers just need to simply say “Launch BBC Sounds” into their Sky Q voice remote, and start easily listening to their favourites. Within the app, users can bookmark shows they wish to listen to later, seamlessly pick up where they left off on other devices, subscribe to their favourite shows so they never miss a minute, and get recommendations every day for what else they may enjoy.

The deal expands the content collaboration between the BBC and Sky, which in late 2019 saw the BBC iPlayer app launch on Sky Q boxes across the UK.

Patrick Behar, Chief Business Officer, Sky, commented: “In 2020, we brought a range of apps to Sky Q including Disney+, Discovery+ and Amazon Prime Video, so I’m delighted to kick start the new year by adding the brilliant BBC Sounds app to the Sky Q mix. We know the value our customers place on BBC content so it’s great that they can access the best of music, radio and podcasts alongside their favourite TV, in one place, easy.”
