VideoNetwork’s HomeChoice platform now carries BSkyB’s Sky Sports and Movies channels. Subscribers can now watch Sky Sports 1, 2, 3 and Xtra, plus Sky Movies Screens 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.
This takes HomeChoices’ selection up to 80 digital TV and on-demand film, music and entertainment channels.
Roger Lynch, Chairman and CEO, Video Networks Ltd said: “The addition of these channels is great news for HomeChoice subscribers. Over the past 15 years Sky has helped shape the UK’s TV sector. Its sports channels offer fantastic coverage of events that are close to the hearts of all UK sports fans. Furthermore, the addition of Sky Movies means even more choice for our customers. There are currently over 1000 films at their fingertips via our on-demand film channels Film 1st and Movies Now. Factor in the movies delivered via Sky’s channels and the HomeChoice platform offers outstanding choice for film fans.”
Martin Goswami, Sky’s Commercial Director, said: “We are delighted to have reached an agreement with Video Networks that enables Sky to retail its services on the HomeChoice platform. This is a new initiative for Sky and a further broadening of the distribution of our channels.”
