Get social with Sky Share

20 August 2013

Introducing Sky Share, the new  Facebook app that lets you share the shows you love with your friends on Facebook. The app also lets you discover all the best Sky shows based on what your friends are watching, what's trending and personal recommendations. Plus, you can use it to record shows to your Sky+ box directly from Facebook. 
 
Find out more about a show by watching the latest trailer and seeing what people are saying about it. Plan what you want to watch later by seeing which Sky shows are most liked, most recorded and most shared within the Sky Share app.

So whether it's the outrageous laughs of A League of Their Own or the gripping tension of Ray Donovan, don't keep the entertainment to yourself. Share all the best moments with your friends and fellow fans.

Record shows from Facebook
Get the most out of your Sky subscription. Remote Record the shows you love from the Facebook app directly to your Sky+ compatible box.

  

So whether you're stuck on a delayed train or you've simply forgotten that your favourite show is on tonight, you'll be able to catch up when you're back in the comfort of your living room.

  

Just sign in with your Sky iD and click the Record icon next to any show. You can record a single episode, or a whole series.

Find TV your friends are talking about
Get recommendations for TV to watch based on your preferences and discover what your Facebook friends are talking about in Friends Activity. If they're fans of something you'd not watched before, you might discover your new favourite show. 
 
Or let us tell you about the new shows we're falling in love with at Sky in the app's What's New section, or what's popular overall on Facebook with the Trending tab. 
 
What do I need to do to get started?
All you need is a Facebook account. Then just install the app and you can access it wherever you are – at home or on the move from your computer, most mobiles and tablets. 
 
Sky Share features shows from Sky Atlantic, Sky 1 and Sky Living. You don’t need to have Sky TV to enjoy most of the app’s features.  But for Remote Record, you’ll need to match it to your Sky TV account using your Sky iD. 
 
Share and discover great TV with your friends with Sky Share.
