Sky Player Now Includes Sky 1 In Channel Line-UpWritten by Rob Nichols on March 22, 2010 · Filed under Tech
So here we are again talking about another advancement in the TV scene and this time it’s online, on-demand TV. Subscribers to Sky’s online ‘Sky Player’ service now have access to Sky 1 in addition to the 27 live channels already available over the service – included in this being able to watch these Sky channels on your PC, Mac or though the Xbox 360 service.
Sky 1 is one of the best Sky channels and features many top American shows such as The Simpsons, Lost, Bones, 24, Fringe and many more as well as some other hit shows such as Pineapple Dance Studios and Futurama.
I think it’s fair to say this addition to the service will be extremely popular with many TV enthusiasts as there is already 400 movies on-demand as well as all 4 sports channels. Therefore if you can’t find something worth watching, you’re really not a big fan of TV are you?
The service offers 28 live channels plus more on demand content from channels such as History and now Sky One. What makes it more attractive to many consumers is the flexibility of the service. You can watch on your PC, Mac or even Xbox 360 so you can be as mobile as you like as long as you have an active internet connection.
This could be perfect for commuters on trains with free Wi-Fi as you need no dish, long term contract or other equipment and makes for a great premium option other than the likes of regular BBC iPlayer and SeeSaw TV free offerings.
Unfortunately, there still looks like little possibility of the addition of Sky HD channels to the service at this point in time, however I’m sure will come eventually and dramatically increase demand for the service.
That said, for now we’re content with the wide range of channels and on-demand content which now thankfully includes Sky 1. With Sky planning to add more channels to the service before year’s end, more and more people will be seeking to change the way they watch Sky TV over the coming months.
