Responding to the 42% increase of on-demand views for its Sky Movies service, UK broadcaster Sky has unveiled new features for Sky Movies customers on its Sky+ connected TV platform.
New features being introduced from today include a recommendation service, ‘More Like This,’ as well as the ability to create a personalised movies library with ‘Watchlist,’ which lets users compile their own film wish list.
There’s also a ‘Watch from Start’ option, and an upcoming capacity to access a movie’s Rotten Tomatoes Audience Scores.
“This is just the latest in a series of enhancements we’re rolling out every few months to make sure Sky+ continues to make TV watching a brilliant experience in homes up and down the country,” comments Luke Bradley-Jones, Director of TV Products. “The pace at which we’re developing for Sky+ has never been quicker – so customers can look forward to more updates later this year and into 2016.”
Sky’s Principal Streaming Architect for Internet TV Ben Forman will be appearing at this year’s Content Delivery World (5th – 7th October, 2015, Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, London)
