BBC iPlayer’s TV catchup service has finally launched on Sky this week.
Customers with HD boxes connected to the Internet can now catchup on their favourite BBC programmes after they have broadcast on the main channels.
The service is available through the usual On Demand (formerly Anytime) menus on your Sky Guide and joins the existing offerings from the likes of ITV and Sky’s own channels.
Please note you need to have the new EPG software on your box to enjoy the new service – if you don’t you need to wait for it to automatically download to your HD box in the coming weeks.
E! HD has launched on Sky channel 151 with the non-HD channel moving to 233. Customers without HD will find their normal E! on 151 with the HD placeholder on 233.
Sky1 +1 will launch on the 12th November.
The new 1 hour timeshift version of Sky1 will not be available in HD.
Heart TV and Capital TV have a confirmed launch date of Thursday 11th October.
The new music channels are spinoffs from the popular national radio stations of the same name.
Sky Movies have launched a dedicated James Bond channel for October which replaces Sky Movies Showcase.
Sky Movies 007 will change back to Sky Movies Showcase on the 5th November.
