Sky has relaunched the PC version of its Sky Anytime on demand service. The collection of first run movies, sports, entertainment and documentaries is being joined by programming from third party channels; National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, The History Channel, The Biography Channel and Crime & Investigation Network. It’s the first time that third party channels have been added to the PC service, though content from Nat Geo and History can already be found on the DTH push VOD version.
New launch Sky Real Lives and Sky News are both being added to the service that also includes Sky One, Sky Sports, Sky Movies and Sky Arts.
For the first time non-Sky customers will also be able to purchase Sky Anytime content.
Sky Anytime on PC has been moved to a Web-browser based application, improving login, and dispensing with the need to launch a separate application. Although the service remains restricted to one PC per household, it is possible to pre-book a download from a remote location, ensuring the content to be ready once the subscriber returns home.
