SKY NZ customers can now download content to view when they are offline thanks to a new ‘Download to Go’ feature on the SKY GO App.
While connected to the internet, users can browse a selection of TV series and movies based on the channels they subscribe to and download content directly to their mobile or tablet to watch at a later time.
SKY GO App offers content in standard definition, at a resolution optimised for viewing on devices. Customers can download up to 25 titles at one time based on the channels they subscribe to. They then have 30 days to watch a downloaded piece of content before it expires. If distribution rights expire before the 30-day period, the content will automatically delete from the device. Once a customer has started to view a piece of content it will remain available for 48 hours. SKY GO App downloads are not able to be viewed outside New Zealand. Supported devices are iOS 9 and above, and Android 4.4 and above.
“The timing of the launch for our new Download to Go feature on the SKY GO App couldn’t be better as we head into the summer holidays,” says SKY’s Director of Entertainment Content, Travis Dunbar. “Now our customers can download favourite series to binge at the bach, take a movie away to watch on a rainy day, or have a range of family-friendly titles on hand on their devices to occupy the kids on a long drive, all without the need for Wi-Fi.”
