      Sky Player Expands Line-up with New Live TV Channels and Even More Video-on-Demand

      Sky Player, Sky’s online TV service, is expanding its live TV offering with the addition of three new channels this month bringing the number of live TV channels on Sky Player to 30.

      Yesterday, Sky1, with its hit shows such as Lost, 24, House, Cold Case, Bones, Fringe, Futurama, Modern Family, Pineapple Dance Studios, Angela and Friends and Are You Smarter Than Your 10 Year Old launched as a live channel over the internet TV service.

      Later this month Sky Movies Premiere and Sky Movies Showcase will also be added to the service providing access to upcoming blockbusters such as Fast And Furious, The Boat That Rocked, I Love You Man and Knowing. World War II mini-series, The Pacific, which premieres on Easter Monday exclusively on Sky Movies, will also be available on Sky Player.

      In the coming months Sky Player viewers will be able to access live channels from Living and Bravo, following the addition of on-demand content from both brands in February 2010.

      Griff Parry, Sky’s Director of On-demand said: “Sky Player offers an unrivalled choice of live and on demand pay TV content, making it the natural destination for online viewing. It’s about providing people with the most convenient way to access the channels and programmes they enjoy.”

      Stuart Murphy, Director of Programmes at Sky1 said: “We’re passionate about great TV and passionate about ensuring our viewers can access Sky1 where and when they choose. We’re delighted that we’re now able to offer the best of Sky1 on Sky Player TV.”

      Sky Player offers both new and existing Sky customers the opportunity to access a wide range of live and on-demand programmes from both Sky and other third party channels. It’s the most comprehensive web-based TV service available in the UK and Ireland. There are over 500 movies to watch at anytime from Sky Movies and Sky Box Office, live sport from Sky Sports, ESPN and Eurosport, and hundreds of other programmes spanning entertainment, drama, comedy, music, documentaries, kids and the arts.

      Existing Sky TV customers can access a range of content on Sky Player for no extra cost based on their core subscription, whilst for non Sky TV customers, online only subscriptions start from 15 a month.

      Sky Player is available over the internet on PC, Mac, Windows 7 via Window Media Center, Xbox 360 and will soon launch on the FetchTV hybrid Freeview set top box.
