A range of Channel 4’s linear channels and its on demand service 4oD are to be made available across Sky’s digital platforms.
Sky has announced the launch of Sky Store, replacing Sky Box Office in Sky’s video on demand service Sky Anytime+.
Catch-up content from the BBC and ITV will be made available in Sky homes during 2012. All five million homes with the Sky+ HD box will be able to connect their boxes to Sky Anytime+ through the internet, regardless of whether they have chosen one of Sky’s own broadband packages.
BSkyB could be required to provide customer access to its Anytime+ pull VOD movies to any qualifying over-the-top movie service, the Competition Commission has proposed.
In a landmark agreement Virgin Media is to add content from Sky Anytime to its on demand service. The package includes several thousand hours of films, series, sport and news.
UKTV, the UK’s second biggest pay-TV broadcaster, has agreed to place its content on the Sky Anytime+ pull VOD service.
