Brand new Sky+ video download app

Sky has released an update for its Sky+ app for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android that adds the feature to download On Demand shows to your Sky+HD box.

This new app enables viewers to choose shows from the Showcase, Catch Up TV, TV Box Sets or Sky Movies sections and set them to download using their phone from anywhere in the world. Their Sky+HD box will then immediately download the content and ready it for them to watch when they return home.

The update also adds the ability to view the week’s best TV and movies in the Showcase section of On Demand even when you are not connected to your Sky+HD box.

To use the new download feature you will need to have the latest software installed on your Sky+HD box.

“The Sky+ app is incredibly popular with our customers,” says Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s brand director of TV products. “Over 2 million use the app every month and in October alone over 2.4 million shows were set to record using it.”
