sky_homepageSky is to start flagging up ‘top pick’ shows to users of its Sky+ set top boxes as it seeks to drive more use of its on demand content.

A curated list of shows will be displayed on the ‘homepage’ users access via their remote control and will feature a mix of broadcast shows and, depending on the customer’s subscription, box sets from the firm’s growing on demand library.

The update will rollout to users in August.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Director of TV and content products commented: “We know that customers are watching even more TV, and with every update to Sky+ we’re making it even better.

“Since the Homepage was launched on demand viewing has increased by 209%.

“That’s why we’re introducing Top Picks, a brand new Homepage section, telling our customers about even more fantastic shows, both live and On Demand, recommended by our TV experts.”

    Having just re subscribed to Sky (after an offer that was unrefusable) I am dissapointed with the way they currently manage box sets.

    Downloaded episodes can be kept for about a year, but I was unaware they were withdrawing a certain box set I was 80% of the way through.
