ANDROID and iOS users will be the first to receive a free Sky TV upgrade.
A new version of the Sky Go app will launch on Apple TV, iOS, Android and Desktop this winter, allowing users to watch their favorite shows, films and sport in the run-up to Christmas.
Sky explained that the trial will include new features and a few background changes.
“The purpose of this trial is to test and learn, so we want your honest opinion on how the app works on a console platform,” said a statement on Sky’s website.
“Your feedback means a successful launch for all customers.
“So if you’re technically minded and have a keen interest in digging up clues, this might be the trial for you!”
The telecom company announced that recruitment is underway.
To participate in the winter test drive, customers must have an active Sky TV package, with Sky Go Extra or Q Multi-screen.
Sky Glass users need a Whole Home subscription to use Sky TV.
Anyone with Apple TV should have HD and 4K streaming devices.
Those wishing to participate must also sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Sky is constantly rolling out free goodies to keep its VIP members happy and perhaps entice new customers to join.
The latest is a free film from a popular children’s franchise, only available to Sky VIP members on site.
Teen Titans go! Released in 2018, To the Movies centers on the DC superhero team as teenagers trying to “realize their dream of stardom” while being “sidetracked by a serious supervillain and his maniacal plan to take over Earth “, said Warner Bros. .
The film (and series) is rated PG and is intended for children aged approximately eight years or older.
It’s the only DC division to trade friendly banter with comic rival Marvel – and involve beloved cameos.
The show has been compared to Cartoon Network properties such as Adventure Time, The Regular Show and The Amazing World of Gumball.
While certainly aimed at younger minds, the title features a star-studded voiceover cast including Nicholas Cage, Kristen Bell, Will Arnett and Khary Payton.
