      Sky Go: Software update, more content, features & free Sky Go Extra for multiroom customers

      From Pocket-lint:

      Sky Go is due to get a major update later this Summer, which will see a new look design implemented across apps. As well as the redesign, Sky will be bringing four new Catch Up TV channels and the ability to use Sky Go Extra for free for Sky Multiroom customers.

      Sky is yet to give a specific date, but "later this Summer", you will be able to access catch up TV from Fox, Universal and SyFy via Sky On Demand. If you opt for the Entertainment Extra pack then its also possible to watch on demand Disney content as well.


      Next we have a redesign, which Sky promises will bring easier navigation and larger thumbnail images while browsing the On Demand library. An update is also promised for the Xbox app, bringing in the new Microsoft user interface. Unfortunately we don't have a huge amount more on the redesign just yet.


      An interesting new twist is that Sky Multiroom customers will be able to use Sky Go Extra to download and store shows for offline viewing. Multiroom users will get Sky Go Extra for free. Again we don't have a specific date here, but Sky says early July. For those wanting to give it a go, all you need to do is add Sky Go Extra to your account over at Sky.com


      Naturally all these new features will need an internet connection and Sky hasn't detailed whether or not they will be lifting the two device limit on Sky Go, but we doubt they will be. We will be posting more on the new look Sky when we are given date specifics.

      I have read two posts "elsewhere" stating that Sky Go Extra will become free of charge to Multiroom customers from 3 July, but I have not yet seen any official confirmation of this.

      Same here, which is why I included the link to the piece on Pocket-lint.

      I wanted to post it in the "Rumour Mill" section but do not have permission to do so. If a mod wants to move it then please do because it is a rumour until Sky confirm!

      Well spotted on that article!

      Only mods can start new rumours but anyone can comment thereafter.

      I'm a multi-room user - so you have my interest, though when I'm going to get the time to watch all this stuff is beyond me

      I'd like to see a sky go / Multiroom for Roku.

      Or even a discount on now TV as an alternative for people who can't/don't want to re-wire the house for traditional multiroom
