      Sky News Launches Catch Up TV Service
      First dedicated news service for Sky’s On Demand platform

      Sky News today launches its Catch Up TV service. The service, which sits on Sky’s On Demand platform, is available from launch to 5 million Sky customers with a connected Sky+HD set-top box. It will allow customers to get up to speed with the very best of Sky News content by choosing the stories they want to watch when it suits them. Content will include key bulletins, specially commissioned programmes in the form of documentaries and the pick of Sky News’ archive.

      As well as being able to access top stories, news features and analysis throughout the day, the news service will offer special programming such as Week in Review, a quick fire irreverent look back on the week’s news, chaired by Jayne Secker and featuring Sky News’ paper review favourites Andrew Pierce (Columnist and Consulting Editor – The Mail) and Kevin Maguire (Associate Editor – Daily Mirror).

      The recently launched Friday night programme Entertainment Week hosted by Sky News’ Entertainment Correspondent, Lucy Cotter, will headline a Catch Up category dedicated to Showbiz.

      So maybe i can easily watch the tech show 'swipe' now?

      It never had a dedicated slot in the EPG & i only came across it by chance once, in the boxsets section.

      Yes i can easily watch it now.
