While smartphone have made many things much easier,
showing off your photos by passing round your phone is never an
ideal solution. But with Sky's latest update to its Sky+ app, you
can sit back and relax as your friends and family watch your photos
go past on your HD TV.
Your phone simply needs to be on the same Wi-Fi as your
Sky+HD box and you should see a camera icon appear in the
navigation bar of your app. After clicking it just takes a few
steps to display the photos you want to share, you can even set up
a slideshow to view on the big screen.

without the need for any extra devices.
The photo function is just one of the changes going live
in the update. A new smart series link which automatically records
your favourite show and direct shortcut to the sports channel also
Sky has also been working closely with the RNIB to
optimise the Sky+ app for the inbuilt voice over technology on iOS
