      New SkyCast website is now launched.

      Sky have launched their Skycast Website, in beta, as reported by us weeks ago.

      About SkyCast

      SkyCast is a new kind of entertainment experience, inspired by the best of Sky TV and created by you, the viewer. It is a multi-platform service designed to give Sky TV fans the chance to get more involved with their favourite TV shows and to create and share their own home-grown content.

      The website, SkyCast, is at the heart of the service - it is a growing video entertainment site featuring highlights and exclusive extras from Sky's leading TV shows, along with home-grown TV made by our viewers. Anyone can grow their own TV simply by shooting a film on a video camera or mobile and uploading it to SkyCast. We are looking for genuinely entertaining, informative or engaging content; so if you are passionate about your TV, whether it is Premiership Football, Lost, 24, Brainiac or Sky Arts, we want you to express yourself and get creative. We will showcase our favourite 'Clips of the Week' on the Sky interactive TV platform and the very best home-grown entertainment will be hand picked to appear on national television. If you have an idea or something to say 'Film it, Load it, SkyCast it!'

      At the moment, SkyCast is in Beta testing phase and we would love to hear any ideas or feedback about the service. Please email us at contactus@skycast.com. We will not be showing any home-grown videos on TV during the Beta phase but we will be keeping track of the best entries and will consider them for broadcast once the service is fully launched.

      One can only but wonder what they would use your phone nunber for, I would be very surprised if you didn't get any spam from them.

      Re: New SkyCast website is now launched.

      Sorry but sky cast is going to be so boring, i made a video of my three year old playing computer games.
      Before anyone starts yes he does go to the park and plays on the swings and also plays football and golf.
      He also has older brothers and sisters so he learnt to play on the pc and xbox ect.
      Well you might not like the video but i know from my other children i would rather have them playing pc games golf and football than out on the streets and i know were they are and what they are doing.
      I find your reply offencive

      On the right hand side of the video there is a link that will allow you to Flag as inappropriate (like on youtube)
