Major Updates To Sky Service Expected Today

January 20th 2016

You may notice some welcome changes to your Sky service at some point today. Their on-demand service Sky Go is undergoing a major facelift that the company is calling its “biggest redesign ever”. The transformation will begin rolling out throughout this week and will affect customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Changes will be made to the design of the homepage for Sky Go and well as the mobile app.

These are just the beginnings of Sky Go’s facelift, however. Sky will also be introducing many new services to complement the new look throughout the rest of 2016. The television provider hopes to make Sky Go more user friendly to compete with similar services offered by the likes of Netflix and Amazon. Sky also hopes that the all-new Sky Go will offer a more personalised experience that is intuitive to each customer.

The first customers who will begin to see the benefits of this redesign are people using the Android mobile app. It is expected that iOS users will start to see updates in February.


Sky, TalkTalk And CityFibre For Ultra-Fast Network In York

April 16th 2014

The city of York is about to receive the fastest broadband speed in the UK. Four telecoms groups, led by Sky and TalkTalk, have announced their plans to fit the city with an ultra-fast network. It will be capable of giving its users up to one gigabit per second. It will pose an enormous challenge to BT’s dominance in the market.

The network will be built by the Japanese electronics company Fujitsu and the British firm CityFibre. They plan to install the same network in other cities around the UK which have not yet been named. The first phase of the installation will target 20,000 homes and businesses, providing for 10% of York’s population.

BT’s networks currently provide around 80 megabits per second, so Sky and TalkTalk’s infrastructure would be remarkably better. The chief executive of TalkTalk, Dido Harding, said: “TalkTalk has a long history and proven track record of disrupting new markets, and this is the next step in that journey.

“We are excited to be working in partnership with Sky and CityFibre to build this new network that will offer significantly higher speeds at much better value than is currently available. This marks TalkTalk taking its first steps into investing in building infrastructure as part of our mission to make British homes and businesses better off.”

The York city council leader James Alexander said: “This announcement makes York the digital infrastructure capital of the UK. Gaining ultra-fast broadband across the city is a huge boost for our economy, providing significant new opportunities for businesses based here and better quality and value to our residents.”

Sky Broadband Traffic Doubled In 2013

January 10th 2014

Sky has revealed that their broadband usage doubled between Christmas 2012 and Christmas 2013.

The highest spike in their traffic for the year was at 10pm on Christmas Day. It is likely that this was due to  customers activating their new Christmas presents like smartphones, games consoles, tablets, eReaders, etc. It may also have been because of the flux of people taking to social media websites to share their thoughts and pictures from the day. That’s not the mention the families gathering around their TV sets to watch on-demand TV content through their broadband.

Sky’s Brand Director Lyssa McGowan said: “Gone are the days of one-Christmas-fits-all. With the increase in tablets and smartphones and the huge variety of entertainment on offer now, households and families are becoming techier, be it grandad on his iPad or his granddaughter on her Xbox 360. That’s why having a totally unlimited DSL or fibre broadband package has become so important for families”.
