Sky today unveils a free Sky Movies app

The new app brings users up-to-the-minute information about Sky Movies,

value for their subscription.

day for Sky Movies content as well as information about what’s coming up on
the service within the next week and next month. Movie trailers and reviews
can also be found on the app and an Android version will be available early
next year.

Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies said, “We are really pleased to be
able to add the Sky Movies app to our already strong offering of iPad and
iPhone apps. Combined with the Sky+ and Sky Go apps, customers now have even
more ways to discover and enjoy the films they want to watch, either at home
or on the move. We continually strive to give our customers the best
possible movie service and this is just one additional feature out of many
we have planned for Sky Movies over the coming months.”
