      Sky Expands Sky Player Online TV Service

      Today, Sky has added Sky Movies Screen 1 and 2, Nat Geo Wild, Eden, G.O.L.D. and Sky Real Lives to its internet-based subscription TV service – Sky Player TV - which is available without the need to subscribe to an existing TV-based service.

      The launch of these new channels bolsters the existing Sky Player TV subscription service, which from £15 a month, already offers Sky Sports, Sky News, and other leading brands such as National Geographic, Disney Channel, British Eurosport and MTV ONE.

      The addition of Sky Movies Screen 1 and 2, means Sky now offers premium online movies’ subscriptions that comprise both live channels and on demand access to hundreds of film titles.

      The launch of Nat Geo Wild, Eden, G.O.L.D. and Sky Real Lives increases the channel roster within the entertainment pack to 12, and with further names set to launch in the coming weeks, strengthens Sky’s position as the natural destination for online viewing.

      Basic and premium subscriptions are flexible with a minimum one-month term, and viewers can access their chosen channels from Mac or PC, anywhere in the UK.

      Griff Parry, Sky’s Director of On-demand, said: “At Sky, viewers come first, whether they watch live or on-demand, via their TV or online. The continued expansion of Sky Player puts choice and control over what and how to watch, firmly in people’s hands; whether they’re already familiar with Sky TV or just want to watch the content we offer online.”

      Existing Sky TV customers can watch the on-demand programmes that fall within their core TV subscription at no extra cost. Existing TV customers with multi-room or Sky Broadband Max can also watch the live channels they subscribe to at home, online at no extra cost*.

      * Sky Movies Screen 1 and 2 will not be available as live channels to existing customers, as Sky Player already makes over 500 movie titles available to Sky Movies subscribers to view at any time for free.

      Live TV channels are available in a choice of quality levels to suit a customer’s broadband connection, the highest of which offers an equivalent viewing experience to standard definition on a TV-based service.

      Sky Player currently offers thousands of hours of on-demand content from all Sky channels – including Sky1, Sky Sports, Sky Arts, Sky Movies, Sky News and Sky Real Lives - as well as a range of third party brands such as BBC iPlayer, National Geographic, The History Channel and ESPN Classic.

      ...and viewers can access their chosen channels from Mac or PC, anywhere in the UK.
      Yet Free Online TV for Sky TV customers, with Sky Player says:

      "Unfortunately Mac users can't watch Movies and Entertainment programmes yet. We are working on it and will let you know as soon as we get this sorted."

      Have I missed something?
