BRITISH BROADCASTER Bskyb has added some features to its Sky+ service, including a nifty Undelete button.
Handy for those who are always accidentally deleting shows from their Sky+ planner, or have partners who get rid of recorded shows, Sky's new Undelete button lets you restore deleted programmes.
"We're adding a new feature to Sky+ called Undelete, so you'll never miss a TV show because you've accidentally deleted it from your Planner," Sky explains.
"All deleted shows will be added to the Deleted tab and you'll be able to restore them to your Planner or delete them permanently from there. The Deleted tab will be found to the left of your Planner's 'All' tab."
Sky customers needn't worry about using up all of their storage with deleted shows, as the firm has assured us that the oldest items will be dumped automatically and permanently to avoid that.
Bskyb has also told us that it plans to tweak its On Demand and Catch Up services. Sky Anytime and Anytime+ will be changed to appear as On Demand in the Sky Guide, and the broadcaster has announced that it will soon be launching Catch Up TV.
This will give users even less of a reason to worry about filling up their hard disk, as shows from ITV Player, Demand 5, BBC and a number of Sky channels will be available to watch for seven days after they have aired.
Other new features include a new Store tab, which offers movies to rent, redesigned menus and the ability to disable the Apple Ipad's remote control features.
It looks like the ongoing battle between Sky+ and Netflix just got a bit more serious. µ
