According to posts on Sky’s official customer forums, the pay-TV giant has now enabled its Anytime+ catch-up service to users of any ISP.

The service, previously available only for Sky Broadband customers, allows viewers to watch a selection of films, sports events and TV shows after they’ve been aired via the Sky box’s broadband connection.

Sky is also working with the BBC to bring iPlayer to to its boxes.

Speaking in january, On Monday Sky Chief Executive Jeremy Darroch said: “We want customers to get the best out of their Sky subscription and Anytime+ is a great way to give them more control and choice over how they enjoy TV.

“We already know how popular Sky+ is and how it puts customers back in charge of their TV viewing. Anytime+ builds on that control and it’s no wonder we’ve seen such strong demand for it.”

In addition to content from Sky’s pay-TV channels, Anytime+ will also offer access to the ITV Player.

Sky has also announced plans to make its content available on internet connected PCs, TVs, set-top boxes and Blu-ray players.

The new internet-TV service is aimed at those who do not subscribe to pay-TV and will launch in the first half of 2012. It will offer some of Sky’s most popular programming, including movies, sport and entertainment.

Sky promises it will offer “flexible pricing” with no minimum contract.
