British broadcaster BSkyb has announced that its customers with HD boxes will start seeing a new electronic programme guide (EPG) that puts less of a focus on live TV from today.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
Rather than following the traditional route of telling you what’s being broadcast at any given time, the EPG will now include a range of on-demand content (whether that’s catch-up TV, box sets, or movies) as well as live TV. There’s also quick access to the Sky Store from the homepage too.
The company noted that the Sky+ app is also being updated to stay consistent with the changes to the EPG. Among the new features there are the new homepage design, a ‘highlights’ carousel and an apparently much demanded feature that lets you turn your Sky+ box’s power on and off from the app.
