Sky plans launch of new digital TV service

Thursday, June 3rd 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Digital TV provider Sky has announced plans to launch a new on-demand service called Anytime Plus.

Subscribers to Sky's digital TV bundles will be able to access a new range of on-demand content later this year, according to reports.

Pocket-lint.co.uk has revealed that the company, which also offers broadband and home phone services, will offer access to a number of movies and programmes through its Anytime Plus platform.

It is believed that those interested in the TV service will have to take up one of Sky's broadband connections, as it is only available through the firm's web infrastructure.

Talking to the website, Kathryn Downward, Sky's head of IT services, said: "We hope to offer support for other internet service providers in the future, but at launch the service will only be available to Sky Broadband customers."

She added that the service will include "over 1,000 hours of entertainment".

Details of the new service have come just a couple of months after Sky launched Europe's first 3D digital TV channel.
