Sky Deutschland have launched Sky Snap, a new online media library that provides an exciting addition to the Sky Go service – Snap is available to those without a Sky subscription as well. Snap offers thousands of titles, from complete season box-sets of award-winning series, to the biggest hits from the HBO library, the greatest movies of the last decades, and an incredible selection of children’s programmes, including exclusive highlights from the world of Disney. Through comprehensive partnerships with Hollywood studios and many independents, Snap provides a great range of titles from “The Hangover” to “Happy Feet”, as well as “Mission Impossible 1-3”, “How I Met Your Mother” and even all seasons of “24”. The content portfolio will be extended daily, including the addition of at least one new movie each and every day, so there is always something new and exciting to explore. Customers can choose whether they would like to watch titles in German or the original language.
From the start Snap will also have the most extensive HBO catalogue available anywhere, including “Boardwalk Empire”, “True Blood” and all seasons of series such as “The Sopranos” and “Sex and the City”. In the coming months exclusive HBO highlights like “Game of Thrones” will join the selection. The full range of movies and series will be available on demand via the web, iPad or Samsung Smart TV. The iPhone will be added soon, Samsung Galaxy products as well as other platforms and devices will follow. For even more flexibility, many programs can be downloaded on the iPad and watched offline regardless of where the user is, and whether or not they are connected. Everyone who prefers a bigger screen can watch via the Samsung Smart TV app (as extension of a comprehensive partnership exclusively available until the end of 2014), or can transfer films and series directly from the iPad to the TV set via AirPlay on Apple TV.
“Sky pioneered the concept of a content rich, live and on demand entertainment service with Sky Go, and as a result today Sky is the largest OTT pay-TV service in Germany and Austria,” says Brian Sullivan, CEO Sky Deutschland. !With Snap, we’re taking the next step, giving Sky customers and all entertainment fans the chance to enjoy a new selection of top quality content from the Sky Collection.”
