Live streamed audio and podcasts will be available to Sky Q customers in the UK through the BBC Sounds app.
More than 80,000 hours of audio content will be available including live BBC radio broadcasts, music mixes, and podcasts from the likes of Joe Wicks, Stacey Dooley, Louis Theroux and George the Poet.
The BBC Sounds app joins a growing collection of apps on Sky Q including BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and Netflix.
Patrick Behar, Chief Business Officer, Sky, said: “In 2020, we brought a range of apps to Sky Q including Disney+, Discovery+ and Amazon Prime Video, so I’m delighted to kick start the new year by adding the brilliant BBC Sounds app to the Sky Q mix. We know the value our customers place on BBC content so it’s great that they can access the best of music, radio and podcasts alongside their favourite TV, in one place, easy.”
BBC Sounds can be found under Apps on the menu or customers can say “Launch BBC Sounds” into their Sky Q voice remote.
Within the app, users can bookmark shows they wish to listen to later, pick up where they left off on other devices, subscribe to their favourite shows and get recommendations for what else they might enjoy.
The deal expands the content collaboration between the BBC and Sky, which in late 2019 saw the BBC iPlayer app launch on Sky Q boxes across the UK.
