Anytime+ soon to be available to all Sky users
In these times of austerity and brutal government, pretty much the only thing we’ve got left to cling to is the escapism that can be found by sitting in front of the goggle box and gawping at the goings-on therein.
Fortunately, it’s now going to be even easier to anaesthetise yourself from the pain and misery that goes on outside, as Sky are making their on-demand Anytime+ service available to all and sundry.
Previously, the service was only available to those with Sky Broadband but that should all be changing very soon, and as if by magic, the BBC’s iPlayer will also be added to the Anytime+ offering, making telly-on-demand better and easier than ever.
It is believed that the BBC were reluctant to add iPlayer to Anytime+ while Sky restricted the service to Sky Broadband subscribers. The ITV Player will also be made available through Anytime+ shortly.
In other iPlayer news, the BBC’s catch-up service is now available through the Microsoft Xbox, after what seems like a delay of forever. iPlayer has of course been available through the PS3 and Wii for absolutely ages.
Right, we’re off to watch Richard Bacon getting bullied.
