Flash New Sky Home Screen Rolls Out Today

By Gary Cutlack on at

Satellite TV subscribers who do their tellying through a relatively modern Sky+HD box will see Sky's all-new home screen layout appear today, with the refreshed EPG and its focus on on-demand services rolling out right now.

Sky's quite happy about how this redesigned interface gives equal weight to live TV, on-demand material and its own shopping services, although the addition of shop links to the start screen makes it look like Sky's trying to introduce a "freemium" style to its guide. You have to watch 24 hours of ITV or pay £1.99 to unlock an episode of Breaking Bad, that sort of thing. [BSkyB]
