Sky Go in Kit form

To enable Sky Deutschland to reach more platforms with its Sky Go TV everywhere service, it has selected Kit Digital to provide additional technology. Sky Go allows subscribers to watch content – including movies, sport and live events – when they want, on computers, iOS devices like the iPad, and through the Xbox 360. The service is powered by the Kit Cosmos platform. The second phase, recently completed, extends the service to even more connected devices. It also provides social media integration, allowing users to recommend content to friends, thereby easing the challenge of discovering content from the huge catalogue available. From the launch of Sky Go in Germany and Austria, in April 2011, until the end of the year the service reached a subscriber base of 594,000. “The numbers speak for themselves: Sky Go is a hit for Sky Deutschland,” said Oliver Botti of Kit Digital. “Consumers have tasted the freedom of video anytime, anywhere, and by using Kit Digital’s Cosmos platform Sky is providing its customers with greater flexibility and convenience.” Mauro di Pietro, VP of information technology at Sky Deutschland, added “We are proud to be working with Kit Digital as their platform reflects Sky’s standards for great content and innovation. The new service extends the relationship we have with our customers through Sky Go, and allows them to take their multiscreen viewing to a new level.”
