BSkyB Introduce the Sky Player


by David Allen

In the scheme of market forces, BSkyB have been doing a little bit of tweaking to the Sky Anytime service.

To compete directly with the BBC’s iPlayer and the other similar services, BSkyB have renamed Sky Anytime to the Sky Player.

If you say them both quickly there is little difference to choose between the names.

But with the introduction of the new device, is this going to cause even more problems for the ISPs?

The Sky Player uses a video player which the user will have to download the software for, which brings up an interesting question; eventually there are going to many different types of player, one for each of the content providers, isn’t this going to cause problems at some stage?

Eventually something will have to give, nobody is going to want several players on their computers, but there is not really any viable alternative either.

Unless they get up from their desks and walk across the room to watch the TV instead.
