Sky unveils Sky Go Extra

Sky has added a new service to its Sky Go app, allowing customers to download content from Sky Movies, Sky 1 and Sky Atlantic for offline viewing.

For £5 a month, Sky TV customers can use Sky Go Extra to download movies and TV shows depending on their Sky TV subscription to their smartphone, tablet, laptop or MacBook. Sky Go Extra customers who subscribe to the Sky Movies pack will be able to download new releases around six months after they have ended their run in cinemas.

The launch of the new service builds on Sky Go, which offers Sky customers access to live and on demand programmes and films from up to 43 channels on internet-connected devices including laptops, smartphones, tablets and games consoles. Sky Go Extra customers can register for Sky Go on up to four, rather than two, internet-connected devices.

Stephen van Rooyen, Managing Director of Sales & Marketing at Sky, said: "Building on the ever-growing popularity of Sky Go, Sky Go Extra lets Sky customers download great movies and TV shows to take with them to watch offline whenever and wherever suits them, as well as access to Sky Go on up to four internet-connected devices. Together with our comprehensive On Demand service and our range of award-winning apps, we continue to deliver helpful and innovative ways for Sky customers to enjoy even more flexibility over when, where and how they enjoy Sky."

Sky Go customers can sign up for a two month free trial of Sky Go Extra until the end of March.
