Sky Adds 6 Channels To Online Player

In a bid to beef-up its offerings online telly addicts, Sky has added six new channels, including a couple of Sky Movies channels, into its inventory of online TV services.

The new six channels that have been included into the service are Sky Movies Screen 1 and 2, G.O.L.D, Nat Geo Wild, Sky Real Lives and Eden, and viewers who already have access to online TV services from Sky could watch these channels free of charge over the web.

However, others can access these channels by paying £15 per month for using Sky Player services, which already have a list of striking channels, including Sky Sports, Disney Channel, Sky News, National Geographic, MTV One, and British Eurosport.

Commenting upon the new offerings from Sky Player services, Griff Parry, Sky’s director for On-Demand, said in a statement, “The continued expansion of Sky Player puts choice and control over what and how to watch, firmly in people’s hands; whether they're already familiar with Sky TV or just want to watch the content we offer online”.

With the new additions, Sky Player services, which are compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, will present 12 entertaining channels to its users.

Sky is beefing up its online offering to compete more efficiently with the likes of ITV Player and BBC iPlayer. The Sky Player is only available for those with a Sky subscription. However, it should not be discounted that in a future, BSkyB could potentially have a free version to lure new customers.
