Sky+ app adds On Demand download option

If you happen to be the kind the kind of person that wants everything NOW, you'll probably love the latest addition to the Sky+ app.

The app for both iOS and iPhone has been updated with the ability to remotely download shows in advance. So basically, if you see something interesting that's available to download - a film for example - that you want to watch when you get in from work or the pub, you can use your phone to get that download started (and hopefully finished) ahead of you getting through the front door.

To get the option you obviously need to update your app. But you will also need to check that you have the latest version of the software on the connected Sky+ HD box. That's rolling out now, so it might be a little hit and miss currently. But it is coming.

The update also allows you to view the week's best TV and movies in the Showcase section of On Demand even when you are not connected to your Sky+HD box.

According to Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky's Brand Director of TV Products: 'The Sky+ app is incredibly popular with our customers; with over 2 million using the app every month and in October alone over 2.4 million shows were set to record using the Sky+ app.'

'We know the way our customers are watching TV is changing and On Demand has become much more popular. Over 3.4m homes with a Sky+HD box connected to broadband are now downloading around millions of On Demand shows and movies every week.'

If you are one of them, your life just got a little bit easier.
