Sky Italia launches new UI

Sky Italia has launched a new HD user interface available to users of its MySky HD set-top boxes.

The pay TV broadcaster has begun the process of downloading the new guide to its hybrid boxes within the last few days. The guide is designed to give easy and intuitive access to HD and 3D services, interactive applications and digital-terrestrial channels. It includes functionality allowing users to surf channels while continuing to watch TV on the main screen, a search engine and parental control capabilities.

A new dynamic banner feature on the guide allows the viewer to see the next three successive programmes. Sky has also added series link functionality to its DVR service.

The software download will also enable the MySky HD set-tops to receive content via the Ethernet port on the box, enabling Sky to deliver additional services via broadband.
