Sky player available to all


by David Allen

It looks as if the satellite broadcaster Sky is looking to the phone lines to deliver their content to a different type of customer, the internet user.

In order to attract new viewers to the premium subscription services, Sky will be introducing the Sky Player to non-Sky customers; naturally, it is going to be similar to the BBC’s iPlayer, which has proved to be a great success over the past year.

Although there is no need for a Sky satellite subscription to get the Sky Player, it is going to be a subscription based service, so whatever way you look at it, watching Sky programming either via satellite or via broadband connection there will be a price to pay.

As with the BBC iPlayer users of these services will need to be aware that watching TV over the internet can push the broadband usage up considerably.
