Enhancing the TV experience
With over half of all Sky customers now owning smartphones, we have an opportunity to give them even more value. Our range of apps allows them to enjoy some of their favourite things from Sky on the move – from live TV and breaking news to the latest scores and more. All available at no extra cost with their monthly subscription.
Our mobile TV service, Sky Go, allows customers to watch great TV wherever they are via PCs, laptops, games consoles, tablets and a range of smartphones. All our Sky Movies and Sky Sports channels, our entertainment channels and Sky News can be watched live on Sky Go, with entertainment programmes and movies also now available to watch on demand. In the three months to the end of June 2012, Sky Go was used by 2.7 million unique users.
Through our award-winning Sky News app, customers can also keep up to date with the latest headlines by watching live or by choosing which stories to follow. Formula 1 fans can also choose the perfect partner for watching live Grands Prix with a special companion app that allows them to access different camera angles and real-time data. Other Sky apps that complement the main TV experience are our Sky+ app, which enables customers to browse the Sky Guide and set their Sky+ box when they're out and about, and our Sky Movies app, which enables movie fans to find a film to watch at home or at their local cinema.
