CATCH-UP TV SERVICE BBC Iplayer is finally available to Sky+ customers.

Sky announced today that from Tuesday BBC Iplayer will come with its on-demand programme guide, joining ITV and Channel 5 which are already on board. This means that viewers will be able to catch up on shows like Don't Tell The Bride by heading over to On Demand on their Sky+ guide and selecting the Iplayer option from the menu.

Sky says that all BBC Iplayer content will be available to view for up to seven days, and that viewers will be able to watch most shows in HD quality.

Luke Bradley-Jones, director of TV Products at Sky said, "We're delighted to have partnered with the BBC to bring the best of the BBC on demand to Sky customers. Providing customers with the flexibility to enjoy their favourite TV on demand, our comprehensive catch-up TV service perfectly complements the genius of Sky+, which already helps millions of our customers take charge of their viewing.

"We continue to put Sky customers in control, with the addition of BBC Iplayer to Sky+ sitting alongside a range of innovations including remote record, series link and now even being able to use your Ipad as a remote control."

Sky also announced that 4OD will be available to Sky+ customers next year. µ
