For the first time, Sky Q customers will now be able to download recordings to their smartphone, browse ‘top picks’, and stream live and on-demand shows out of the home.
The app will also allow users to manage recordings and downloads to the Sky Q box, while those using the app at home will also be able to find shows they didn’t finish watching or the next episode in a series.
Sky Q app customers will also have access to the TV Guide, Catch Up TV, My Photos.
“We know Sky Q customers love the flexibility of watching TV on their terms. The new Sky Q mobile app will give them even more freedom to watch their recordings, access Top Picks, and stream live and On Demand TV when they’re out and about,” said Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s brand director of TV and content products.
“If it’s The Night Of box set, live Premier League or Sky original The Young Pope, Sky Q customers can now look forward to their daily commute or long car journey, while they catch up on the latest and best TV from Sky.”
Separately, Sky has added more content from Channel 4’s digital hub All 4 to its Sky Go and Sky Q mobile apps.
The new shows join the existing All 4 archive and box set programmes currently available on Sky’s mobile platforms, and join content from E! Entertainment Television, Syfy and Universal Channel, which were added to the Sky Go and Sky Q apps earlier this year.
The new Sky Q app is available for customers to download on iOS and Android devices from October 18.
