PS4 to add Sky Go and Now TV support this year

Delayed Xbox One Now TV app will also launch this summer

Sky and Sony Computer Entertainment UK have partnered to introduce PS4 support for Now TV and Sky Go.

Now TV will be available on Sony's console from this summer, while Sky Go will launch on PS4 later this year.


PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara said: "Now TV has been a great addition to the PS3 entertainment portfolio, so bringing it to the new PS4 is going to delight all users of the newest, most powerful member of the PlayStation family. Sky Go joining both PlayStation platforms further enhances our credentials as the ultimate gaming and entertainment package."

Now TV offers on demand access to some of Sky's most popular content including films and sports, while Sky Go lets users watch Sky TV on a range of devices in line with their existing subscriptions.

A Sky representative told CVG on Thursday that the delayed Xbox One Now TV app will also launch on Microsoft's console this summer.

"We enjoy a long track-record of innovating with Microsoft and look forward to the launch of Now TV on Xbox One by summer," they said. "We will announce more details on the Now TV app for Xbox One nearer to the time of launch. Looking ahead, we will also consider any future opportunities for Sky Go."
