UKTVSky’s On Demand service has added the UKTV pay entertainment channels Watch, Gold, Dave and alibi to its offer.

This follows on from the launch of catch-up services for Watch, Gold, Dave and Alibi on Sky Go last year.

Watch, Gold, Dave and Alibi are the first channels from UKTV’s portfolio to launch catch-up services, allowing Sky customers to view UKTV shows they may have missed. Sky customers can also look forward to TV Box Sets from UKTV’s most popular shows in the coming weeks.

Keith Porritt, executive director commercial, said: “The popularity of our channels has never been higher and we are committed to enabling viewers to watch our award-winning content whenever and wherever they like. Our agreement with Sky to provide catch up services for Watch, Gold, Dave and Alibi on Sky Go and now on connected Sky+HD boxes is UKTV’s first pay TV catch up deal. It is an important milestone in our continued drive to put our viewers at the heart of everything we do.”

Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s brand director of TV Products, added: “Watch, Gold, Dave and Alibi today join the UK’s biggest Catch Up TV service – offering customers content from 60 channels to watch when it suits them. It’s all part of our continued commitment to provide our customers with a great TV experience whenever and wherever they want it, all at no extra cost.”
