Sky+ App For iPhone Updated, Adds In Remote Control


Sky has released a new version of their Sky+ app for Apple’s iPhone, and the latest version of the app adds in some new features, which include the ability to use your iPhone as a remote control for your Sky+.

The new Sky+ iPhone app will now let you change channels on live TV and you can even use it to pause, play and rewind TV on your Sky+ box, it can also be used to browse through all your existing recordings on Sky+ HD.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Brand Director, TV Products, comments:  “People use their phones as a one-stop-shop to manage virtually every aspect of their lives – whether organising their diary, checking their bank balance or paying bills – so why not use it to control their TV too? Having received great feedback about these features when we introduced them to the Sky+ app for iPad earlier this year, it’s great to now be making them available on iPhone too, which is obviously the ideal size for use as a remote control.  

“Combined with the convenience of also being able to remotely record programmes from their phone while out and about, the Sky+ app is cementing its position as the ultimate TV gadget, helping millions of our customers get more great value from their Sky subscription both in and out of the home.”
