Here's another Blog post about all the new My Sky features. 

 

For You

 

We’ll soon be introducing personalised recommendations in Sky Cinema and Sky Store so it’s even easier to find great shows to watch from the 1,000’s of titles we offer.

You’ll find up to 20 personalised recommendations in a new ‘For You’ tab in both Sky Cinema and Sky Store based upon your household’s on demand downloads and viewing.

 

Recording Improvements

 

It's now even easier to resolve recording clashes. You can now reschedule any of your clashing shows to another time if available.

Plus if you set a future recording that clashes, you can download it from on demand too (where available). If you reschedule any recordings, you’ll get a simple on-screen notification confirming the changes you’ve made.

 

We’ll also now automatically set a recording for shows you watch from Catch Up. If you download and then play back the latest episode of a Catch Up show, a series link will be automatically set for any future episodes that are broadcast.
