Sky Movies' new interactive service
If you can’t wait to play with the new Sky HD service, here’s a new development that might keep you busy for the next few weeks – Sky Movies’ interactive service via the red button.
The new application just adds a few whistles and bells to your viewing, but if you’re a film buff, it should be right up your street. You can access a choice of trailers for the films appearing on Sky Movies that day, plus information on cast, certificate, star rating as well as a short review. There’s also an easy-to-use movie planner that tells you what’s on – and when each film starts, plus splash screens featuring news about forthcoming premieres.
Sky promises further enhancements over the coming months, including the strangeley-named ‘Mood Matcher’ service – which I’m guessing doesn’t mean Sky scanning your brain for suitable movie scheduling. But we can live in hope.
