Sky Television release its iPhone, iPad iPod touch application
The new app, packed with features around SKY’s electronic programme guide is a one stop shop for listings for more than 111 channels including all SKY’s channels plus all the free-to-air listings.

The portable access provided to this extensive listing information will benefit not only SKY’s 808,000 plus subscribers but any TV viewer in NZ.

The SKY TV app delivers many useful features to make TV viewing even more convenient. After downloading the app users can remote record shows to their MY SKY decoders, set reminder alerts for their favourite programmes, create their own personal guide with favourite channels or share what they like through Facebook, Twitter, SMS or email.

SKY subscribers can even book a recording of SKY Box Office movies or SKY ARENA events, like the upcoming Sonny Bill Williams fight, through their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

SKY believes the most used feature will be the search functionality. The ability to search for a programme on every channel through a portable device without interrupting television viewing should be hugely popular.

John Fellet, SKY Chief Executive said, “I’m so impressed with this new app I can’t wait for all New Zealand TV viewers to experience it. The app is so easy to use and brings so much convenience to television viewing being both portable and available 24/7. We’re sure it will be well used and we certainly plan to release more functionality in the near future”.

New features are already under development and will be released at a later date. They are planned to include the ability to add services and channel packages to SKY subscriptions and a recommendations feature.

The SKY Television app is in the Apple store today. To download text SKY to 898 or search for SKY TV in the app store.
