Sky+ on your 3G phone?

Satellite TV

Today’s 3G frenzy continues with news from Sky that it is working on a killer TV application for the new breed of mobile phones.

Sky told us last year that owners of the Sky+ personal video recorder would soon be able to send text messages to their device instructing it to record certain programmes. Apparently, this is now scheduled for sometime in 2005.

The latest from Sky is that it hopes to go one better and offer a mini version of its electronic programme guide which can be accessed via 3G phones. So in theory you will be able to call up the EPG, peruse the evenings viewing and then instruct your Sky+ to record your favourite programmes.

Sounds like a really good use of the technology to us. Don’t expect it to arrive for some while yet though.
