Over the next few months, Sky will upgrade the EPG to reflect the growing popularity of its Sky Anytime Plus platform. Sky’s on-demand service will be integrated into the landing page for particular genres, giving customers a snapshot of the different viewing options available to them, Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s brand director, TV products, explained in a blog posting. Sky Movies customers, for example, will be able to choose between viewing movies live, watching movies that they’ve previously recorded to their Sky Plus planner or on-demand via Sky Anytime Plus. There will also be a search function available on the page allowing Sky Movies customers to search for specific films.
The update will occur as part of a phased roll-out which will last throughout this year, starting with tens of thousands of boxes from today and expanding to millions more before the end of the year. Bradley-Jones said that each month, Sky’s TV customers interact with the EPG more than 1.2 billion times on average.
Other changes will include a greater number of channels available per page, increasing from six to eight channels. Sky Plus Planner users will also be able to browse through their recordings by genre.
