British Sky Broadcasting and Twitter Team to Let Customers Stream, Record Shows

British Sky Broadcasting has started a trial of 'WatchOnSky', a new tool on Twitter that lets Sky customers watch or record TV shows, sporting events and movies by clicking icons contained within a Tweet. Twitter users who see #WatchOnSky on Tweets from Sky can expand the Tweet and tap on an icon that directly links to the Sky Go mobile TV service Sky Go to start watching the show. They can also tap the Sky+ 'R' to remotely set their Sky+HD box to record. Sky claims it is the first UK broadcaster to develop a service which lets users access live TV and set recordings via their Twitter timeline.

Sky and TalkTalk Join Forces with CityFibre to Create Joint Venture Company

Sky and TalkTalk announced that they have joined forces with CityFibre to create a new company that will deliver ultra-fast broadband services in the City of York. The new joint venture company plans to build network to deliver broadband speeds of 1 Gigabit (1,000 Mbps) direct to tens of thousands of homes and businesses in York, offering customers better quality and value. The new network will leverage CityFibre's existing metro fibre infrastructure in the City. Once the ultra-fast network is in place, Sky and TalkTalk will retail competing broadband services over the new infrastructure, with the first York customers expected to be connected in 2015. The joint venture plans to work with leading global technology provider Fujitsu to deploy the pure fibre FTTP network. It will enable Sky and TalkTalk to offer customers better value for higher speeds than is currently available, increasing both choice and innovation in broadband for consumers.
