Sky adds ‘The Wire’ and other high-profile TV box-sets to its VOD collection

Sky adds 'The Wire' and other highprofile TV boxsets to its VOD collection

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.
