Sky Bringing Series Link to Mobile Apps

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sky's popular mobile Sky+ apps are about to get a serious technical refresh, with the TV company set to add full Series Link remote recording support to the iPhone and Android tools.

Sky's Hilary Perchard, its Director of Product Management, says the updated apps will arrive "over the next month". There will be other new features included in the update, too, but no details have been released as yet.

Also, that Android Sky+ app has been updated today, with Sky introducing an entirely new custom layout for those using Android tablets (pictured), bringing it into line with the look of the existing iPad app.

Hilary also filled us in on some stats about Sky's mobile app downloads, revealing that the iPhone version has been downloaded 2.4 million times since launch, with the more recent Android Sky+ app already up to 900,000 installs. [Sky]
