Sky+ Arrives on iPad
Sky today announced its Sky+ App for iPad is available on the App Store.Now, iPad users with a Sky+ or Sky+HD set-top box can search for and record their favourite programmes no matter where they are in the world.
The Sky+ App has many great features, including a highlights showcase section where customers can find the top programmes of the day available on Sky TV – whether it's a movie premiere of the week, a big sporting clash or the latest must see drama –as well as a new recommendations engine that suggests similar programmes to watch based on what the user is currently watching and recording. The easy-to-use app also gives customers access to Sky's seven-day Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), where they can browse listings by time, day, genre, programme name or specifically by what's showing in HD. Once users have picked a show, they can simply tap the record button and their favourite programme will be set to record on their home set-top box.
The app now works with the Sky Mobile TV App for iPad which offers live access to all Sky Sports channels as well as Sky News. Customers who have both apps downloaded can click through to Sky TV directly from the Sky+ App and access any of the app's live content.
David Gibbs, General Manager for Sky Mobile, said: “We are delighted to bring our popular Sky+ App to iPad with several new features which give our customers even more flexibility in discovering, watching and recording the TV they love.”
The Sky+ App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at iTunes Store .
The Sky+ App for iPad further expands Sky Mobile's offering of iOS apps, which currently include Sky Mobile TV App, Sky+ Remote Record for iPhone, the RTS award-winning Sky News, Sky Sports Football Score Centre and Sky Sports Cricket Score Centre. To date Sky Mobile apps have been downloaded more than 9 million times from the App Store.
