As we mentioned back in January (http://www.satandpcguy.com/blog/2014/01/new-look-sky-guide-launched-later-year/) Sky will be introducing a new look Sky Guide for their HD boxes.

Sky has overhauled its Sky+ electronic programme guide (Sky Guide) in the biggest shake up of its EPG since 1998.

For the first time ever, On Demand, including Catch Up TV and Sky Store, and the Sky+ Planner now sit alongside channel listings as equal options on a new homepage, so that customers can immediately find the shows they most want to watch, whether live or on demand.

The new-look EPG is being phased in for all Sky+ customers from Tuesday 18th March and will be completed by the end of May.

The update rolling out now means customers can now choose between browsing live channels, catching up on something recently aired, bingeing on a box set, watching a movie or browsing recordings in their Planner – all accessible from a single screen. Icons on the homepage will now include Catch Up TV, TV Box Sets, New Series, Best of On Demand and Sky Store.

The EPG homepage will also now contain a search bar, which will allow BSkyB customers to submit queries based on title, actor, event, channel, sport or keyword.

The change has been introduced to take into account the growing number of BSkyB subscribers choosing to watch TV on their own terms, Sky added.

  1. Hi Guys, Will SKY be broadcasting the free to air U.K. channels and will we be able to receive in Southern Spain. Keep up the fantastic information feeds.

    • Yes the UK Free to air channels are available with a sky box.
      FTA means you do not even need a subscription – they are free.

      But whether or not you will be able to receive them in southern Spain depends where exactly you are and what sized dish you have.
