BSkyB launches Sky News catch-up service

BSkyB’s Sky News has launched a catch-up TV service on the Sky On Demand platform. 

The service, available to Sky customers with a connected Sky+ HD box, allows users to select stories including key bulletins, specially commissioned programmes in the form of documentaries and the pick of Sky News’ archive.

The service will also offer special programming such as Week in Review, a look back on the week’s news.

Customers will also be able to revisit archive news events from the last 25 years through a feature called The Vault, as well as access specially commissioned news features and documentaries.

“Sky News today joins the UK’s biggest catch-up TV service – offering customers a great way to get their daily news and weather updates when it suits them. Customers simply connect their box to broadband and they’ll have access to Sky News shows when it suits them,” said Luke Bradley-Jones, brand director, TV products.
