Sky upgrades Sky+ search functionality

Sky is updating its Sky+ HD box with new functionality, designed to make it easier for viewers to find content. 

The UK satellite TV firm said the latest update would roll out over the coming months and will let customers that have connected their Sky+HD box to their home broadband search by title, actor, event, channel, sport or any key word.

“The updated search uses technology that collates results based on real-time searches across the nation. It means customers can expect the most recent and on-trend suggestions at the top of their searches,” said Sky.

The functionality, which is already included in the Sky+ mobile app, will offer automatic suggestions as viewers begin to type in a word. It will offer results based on part of a title, an acronym or by actor name, with results taken from both on-demand and live TV.

“With our enhanced Search we are making it even easier to find shows and movies you love, as well as discovering exciting new titles in an intuitive and faster way,” said Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s brand director, TV products.
