Sky+HD box with new advanced “real-time” search

It just got a lot easier for SKY+HD customers to seek out preferred content through the increasingly bewildering array of options, due to a new search functionality for the Sky+HD box that enable them to search by actor, title, event, sport, channel or key word.

Making use of technology that collates results based on real-time searches, the function is meant to ensure that viewers can expect the most recent and on-trend suggestions at the top of their searches.

“With our enhanced Search we are making it even easier to find shows and movies you love, as well as discovering exciting new titles in an intuitive and faster way,” says Luke Bradley-Jones, Brand Director, TV Products. “ We know it can sometimes be hard to find exactly what you’re looking for. Our new Search means you can find just what you want even if you only know the actor’s name.”

Results are from both On Demand and live TV, meaning viewers can watch latest episodes immediately, record the programme to watch later with Sky+ or watch immediately if it’s a live event. The enhanced search functionality is already available on the Sky+ app.
