A new series of features are being introduced to improve viewing of catch-up content, including Auto Play and Catch Up Series Link.
Luke Bradley-Jones, Director of TV and content products, commented: “We know our customers love the freedom to easily watch episode after episode of their favourite TV shows, which is why we continue to invest in new features for Sky+. So whether it’s binge watching addictively good box sets like Billions and The Blacklist, or catching up on your favourite series, including Ray Donovan or A League Of Their Own, Auto Play and Catch Up Series Link give customers the flexibility to watch their favourite shows the way they want.”
The new features as part of the update include: Auto Play: Watch one episode after another effortlessly. Now when customers get to the end of an episode, the next one will automatically start to play provided it’s already downloaded to their Planner. Or press the green button at any point during an episode to watch the next episode immediately.
Catch Up Series Link: Customers can now set a series link on a Catch Up TV programme. Go to the Catch Up TV section or a Catch Up show that’s been downloaded to the Planner and press the green button to ‘Series Link’. This will record future episodes of the show so customers never miss their favourite programme again.
Accessibility: Customers can increase the font size on the Homepage and Services Homepage, through the new ‘Increase Homepage Font Size’ setting. Select the Accessibility tile after pressing the Services button. Choose ‘LARGE’ to increase the font. Customers can still adapt the contrast and font size across the whole Sky Guide through the ‘Increase Sky+ Contrast & Font size’ setting.
