SkyGo and Sky Catch up

Sky news update: the ever expanding Sky Catch-up service has added 12 more channels and more than 100 series of TV shows, for Entertainment Extra+ customers.

In addition to the already vast array of channels available to their customers on the Catch-up service offered by Sky, there have now been a further 12 channels added. The list includes, Discovery, TLC, E!, Star, Watch, GOLD, Dave, Alibi, Cartoon Network, Cartoonito, Boomerang and Sky News. This means that whoever you are, whatever your interests are you never need to miss a show again.

As if this wasn’t enough there is also the chance to watch as many television box sets as you can find the time to watch. With The Wire, the Sopranos, Game of Thrones, Seinfeld and Mad Men all having at least the first three series available for viewing at your pleasure those long wintery nights are suddenly becoming very appealing.

This is not to say that these shows are available exclusively on the Catch-up service, you can also watch and record them live on their respective channels – Sky Living, Sky Atlantic, Sky 1 and so on. Some of the shows are available on selected mobile devices via the SkyGo app or Sky website but it is worth remembering that the Catch-up service’s list of television box sets is available just to those customers who purchase the Entertainment Extra+ package.

Also, with regards to the SkyGo service that you receive, there are limitations put in place and if you do not buy into the SkyGo Extra offer, you can only view the shows on two devices and only transfer between devices once per calendar month.

Sky are offering this service due to the acknowledgement of putting their customers first and allowing them the chance to be flexible with the times and places they watch some of their favourite television shows. The ability to have choice and flexibility seems to have escalated over the first decade or so of the new millennium and has now reached the point at which live television watching is reserved for those shows where real time viewer participation is demanded.

Having always been at the forefront of home entertainment, Sky are being forced to up their game as it were and ensure they remain current. With internet based forms of entertainment taking off that allows customers to watch films and box sets at their convenience, Sky are having to ensure that they remain current. Customers will move elsewhere if they find that there is an equal or better offer from other companies on the market.
