Sky Movies is to add a restart feature to Sky Movies as part of a new update to Sky+ that begins its rollout today.
Also included is a new recommendation service and a personalist watchlist.
The new functionality is part of a new update to the Sky+HD receivers; the third such update this year and relying in part on having the box connected to broadband.
The much-touted restart service is branded as Watch from Start and has already proven itself on Sky Italia.

The Watchlist os a personalised movie library that allows customers to add a new movie at the touch of the Green Button.
Luke Bradley-Jones, director of TV Products said: “This is just the latest in a series of enhancements we’re rolling out every few months to make sure Sky+ continues to make TV watching a brilliant experience in homes up and down the country. The pace at which we’re developing for Sky+ has never been quicker – so customers can look forward to more updates later this year and into 2016.”
Later this year Rotten Tomatoes audience scores will appear as star ratings.
The software update will be gradually rolled out through the autumn.
