Sky Deutschland says it has launched “the first truly integrated offering for TV entertainment of the future - Sky Go“, a multiscreen service for the web, a second TV set and mobile devices.Sky subscribers can access the Sky Go offering on up to four devices at the same time at a cost of €12 a month.
Brian Sullivan, CEO Sky Deutschland, said in a statement: “Sky Go is the beginning of a TV revolution and is a core part of our vision for TV in the 21st century.”
Sky Go on the Web extends viewing flexibility to the line-up of Sky Sport channels – via laptops and computers – and also includes exclusive on-demand access to a vast selection of hundreds of top box-office movies from the Sky Film service as well as a library of sport events. Content is available from Sky Film, Sky Sport and Fußball Bundesliga packages, both live and on-demand, including hundreds of exclusive sports events and top box office movies each month, and over 10,000 hours of programming throughout the year
Sky Go on a second TV set allows customers to watch different programmes from any of their Sky channels, in a second room, at the same time. “With this, the fight about the remote control is a thing of the past,” according to Sky.
Sky Deutschland also announced the updated Sky Go app for the iPad. Enhanced to deliver significantly improved performance as well as adding support for the new iPad 2, Sky Go on the iPad now also includes live viewing from within the Sky Datacenter. The service presents the exclusive live streamed channels Sky Sport 1, Sky Sport 2, Sky Sport Austria and Sky Fußball Bundesliga.
The Sky channels Sky Sport 1, Sky Sport 2, and Sky Sport Austria are also available via 3G. Sky Go on the iPhone and iPod Touch extends this choice and control, including access to the channels Sky Sport 1, Sky Sport 2, and Sky Sport Austria via Wi-Fi and 3G.
