Zeebox for iOS now lets you set your Sky+ box to record remotely

Zeebox for iOS now lets you set your Sky+ box to record remotely

In the wake of its multi-million pound investment in Zeebox early last year, BSkyB (Sky) finally integrated the second-screen app into its own mobile apps in September, with Sky+ for iPad connecting users to social networks, offering apps and other listing-related information. It then became a social remote for both Sky and Virgin Media customers in December.

Now, Zeebox has launched a significant update to its iOS app, letting users set their Sky+ HD box to record, directly from Zeebox. This is a feature that already exists in Sky’s own iOS app.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

When you’re on a programme, you’ll see a little ‘R’ button, which loads the Remote Record feature. To use the Sky+ Remote Record, you will of course have to sign-in with your Sky ID.


In addition to this, Zeebox now lists all upcoming episodes – and repeats – on every show’s page, not to mention another handful of tweaks and bug-fixes. It also has a new Live section, whereby everything in the show you’re watching is clickable.

The updates app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad is available to download from today.
