Sky-D to offer editorial recommendations

January 10, 2014 11.40 Europe/London By Julian Clover

sky-deutschland-gallerySky Deutschland is to introduce highlights and editorially-driven recommendations through the home page of its EPG.

The interactive and customizable home screen, which automatically appears when the Sky box is turned on – shows at a glance all the day’s and week’s best programmes, across all linear Sky channels, as well as the Sky Anytime and Sky Select on-demand services, which are accessible via the award-winning HD receiver Sky+.

Shows on Sky Home can be bookmarked, recorded or directly started, and through the combination of editorial recommendations and the customizable channel list in the My Favourite Channels category.

Brian Sullivan, CEO Sky Deutschland: “Sky Home is the perfect tool to enhance our customers’ entertainment experience, by combining easy one-button access to the best programs with the editorial recommendations from the Sky team, all directly through the Sky boxes. Discovering new content and getting access to favorite programs has never been easier. We want our customers to spend less time searching and more time watching better television.”

Sky Home can also be accessed directly by pressing the green button on the remote. It is being gradually rolled out across the broadcaster’s set-top inventory.
