Sky Announces to Bring Its TV App to Xbox One
Sky TV, one of the leading television service providers in the UK, has a reputation for always remaining updated with the latest technology and market trends and also with the needs and wants of its loyal customer base. They try their very best to fulfill any gaps that may have been left in any of their many services and features such as the Sky TV App.
As such, early in November 2015, Sky TV came out with some exciting news for gamers everywhere. The TV app, which was so far available on the Sony PlayStation and the Xbox 360, will soon be launched on the latest Xbox One as well.
Xbox UK Marketing Director Harvey Eagle, has made a public statement that the Sky TV App is in development to be launched for Xbox One. However, the official date for the launch was kept secret. Microsoft, on the other hand, has spoken that the App and other major updates to the Xbox One will be launched on November 2015 itself and will integrate many aspects of Windows 10, making it the biggest update since the launch of the console in 2013. This new update, which is expected to go public on 12th November 2015, will make it possible to play the old Xbox 360 games on Xbox One, to game remotely from your tablet or PC and will integrate many features of Windows 10.
The excitement for the new update and introduction of Sky TV App is huge, especially due to the buzz being created around it. Industry experts are talking about expecting something big from Sky very soon and Sky itself considers this to be a very major step. Before the launch of this update, Sky TV set out a social media teaser campaign themed, ‘It’s time to set your TV free.’ with the hashtag #SetTVFree, which went viral and was a huge success.

Sky TV has also been dropping hints of an entirely new product range that will be released to the public soon, which has also caught the eye of the world of TV service providers. Sky TV has been referring to this their ‘most significant’ product range in years. Popular speculation is that, for many years, the company has been working on developing a new and improved set top box, under the working title, the SkyQ. This new set top box is believed to compete with Netflix by having an on-demand video library and also compete with BT Sport Ultra HD to provide live 4K video streaming. Besides this, Sky is going the extra mile in bringing the smart TV viewing experience to its customers by having a learning user interface that provides viewers with viewing suggestions based on what they have viewed before and will combine live content, recorded shows and on-demand content, thus making it easier to switch between them than ever before.
