sky+ appBSkyB has added a feature to its Sky+ app to enable users to view photos stored on their smartphones on their TV screens. 

Viewers need to connect their devices to the same WiFi as their Sky+ HD boxes to see a camera icon in the navigation bar of the app. They can then click on this icon and follow the steps to view images on the TV and play a slideshow.

“We know customers already love the Sky+ app and now it’s even better. The photo viewing function lets you simply, quickly and easily view photos on your TV via a connected Sky+ HD box without the need for any extra devices,” said Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s director of TV products.

“With this update, the app will now mirror the new Sky+ homepage, with great features like smart series link and new and recommended helping customers find the TV they really want to watch. It’s all part of our commitment to make Sky+ the ultimate entertainment experience.”
