Sky Q might be about to get a HUGE new competitor
APPLE reportedly plans new premium TV packages as it looks to take on likes of Amazon and Sky.
Watching your favourite TV shows on demand could be about to get a lot cheaper following reports of a new launch from Apple.
This would put Apple in direct competition with other pay-TV services offered by the likes of Sky and Virgin Media in the UK.
Sky Q could be about to see competition from a surprising source
The three channels are currently offered by Apple in the US, but users have to pay $15 a month for HBO, $11 a month for Showtime and $9 a month for Starz.
There’s no news yet on how much Apple is planning to sell its rumoured new package for – but we could well find out more at WWDC in June.
Apple TV recently saw a new app launch that will greatly expand its usefulness
The company recently released a new TV app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV that collects content from all your video apps, whether that’s on-demand or live programs.
Apple also recenly revealed that 8,000 apps are now available on the latest generation Apple TV, as well as 2,000 games in the tvOS store.
In the UK, Sky offers probably the most comprehensive on-demand TV service, with its new Sky Q platform leading the way.
The company recently delighted users by finally enabling a voice search functionality for the platform.
Sky Q owners can now press and hold the dedicated voice button on the side of the bluetooth Sky Q touch remote – and simply say what they’re looking for.
