Sky Go ItaliaA revamp to the Sky+ app has added the ability to remotely download On Demand content to the Sky+HD box.

It follows a new update to the Sky+ box itself that is presently being rolled out.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s Brand Director of TV Products, commented “The Sky+ app is incredibly popular with our customers; with over 2 million using the app every month and in October alone over 2.4 million shows were set to record using the Sky+ app.”

Also in this update, customers can explore the week’s best TV and movies in the Showcase section of On Demand even when the Sky+ app is not connected to the Sky+HD box. So no matter where they are it is always possible to see new TV shows have previews and the latest blockbuster movies out that week.

Over 3.4m homes now have a Sky+HD box connected to broadband.
