With the news that Netflix is being brought to Virgin Media’s TiVo boxes, Sky needs to cook up some sort of response.
That’s why the broadcaster has thrown some money around to offer those premium US dramas everyone raved about before Breaking Bad (The Wire, The Sopranos and Mad Men). If you own a Sky+HD box and use Sky Go, you can now binge down on those shows, plus offerings like Seinfeld and Boardwalk Empire.
The new collections will be added from tomorrow, nestled alongside existing domestic fare like I’m Alan Partridgeand The Inbetweeners. At the same time, Sky has let slip that more channels will be coming to its Catch-Up TV service including Discovery, Star, Watch, G.O.L.D. and E! — hopefully meaning we’ll never again miss an episode of The Soup ever again.
