The latest update to Sky's Electronic Programme Guide, or
EPG, adds a whole raft of new features for Sky+ customers to enjoy.
For instance, users can now quickly find the shows they love with
the help of the brand new recommendations engine. The engine
provides suggestions of TV shows and movies the customer might
enjoy, based on their recent recordings or downloads in their Sky+
Planner. For example, a customer who recently recorded The
Following might find shows like Luther,
Hannibal and Criminal Minds in their recommended
Sky has also updated its Series Link feature. Rather than
just recording the next episode of your favourite shows, the newly
named Smart Series Link will now remember to record the next season
whenever it begins broadcasting.
Sports fans can look forward to a new Sports tile on the
homepage, which offers quick access to all the live sporting events
currently available on any channel you have access to. While Sky
Movies customers will notice a brand new look in the Sky Movies On
Demand and Sky Store home pages, with full DVD cover art
prominently displayed for every film.
