BBC Sounds App joins Sky Q

12/01/2021

Sky and the BBC have deepened their partnership with the BBC Sounds app launching on Sky Q.

From today, the BBC Sounds app will be available to all Sky Q customers in the UK, offering more than 80,000 hours of audio content, including live BBC radio broadcasts, music mixes, and podcasts from the likes of Joe Wicks, Stacey Dooley, Louis Theroux and George the Poet.

The BBC Sounds app joins a host of customer favourites on Sky Q including BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and Netflix, in one place.

To open the app, customers just need to simply say Launch BBC Sounds into their Sky Q voice remote, and start easily listening to their favourites.

Within the app, users can bookmark shows they wish to listen to later, seamlessly pick up where they left off on other devices, subscribe to their favourite shows so they never miss a minute, and get recommendations every day for what else they may enjoy.

The deal expands the content collaboration between the BBC and Sky, which in late 2019 saw the BBC iPlayer app launch on Sky Q boxes across the UK.

Patrick Behar, Chief Business Officer, Sky,said: "In 2020, we brought a range of apps to Sky Q including Disney+, Discovery+ and Amazon Prime Video, so I'm delighted to kick start the new year by adding the brilliant BBC Sounds app to the Sky Q mix. We know the value our customers place on BBC content so it's great that they can access the best of music, radio and podcasts alongside their favourite TV, in one place, easy."

About Sky

Sky is Europe's leading media and entertainment company and is proud to be part of the Comcast group. Across six countries, we connect our nearly 24 million customers to the best entertainment, sports, news, arts and to our own award-winning original content.

Our technology, including the market leading Sky Q, connects people to everything they love - TV, music, games, online video, fitness and educational content, all in one place, easy. Our streaming service, NOW TV, brings viewers all the enjoyment of Sky with the flexibility of a contract-free service.

Building on the success of Sky Originals like Chernobyl, I Hate Suzie and Brassic, we are doubling our investment in original content by 2024 through Sky Studios. Sky News provides impartial and trustworthy journalism for free, while Sky Arts, the UK's only dedicated free-to-air arts channel, makes the arts accessible for everyone. Our new TV and movie studio, Sky Studios Elstree, is expected to create over 2,000 new jobs and generate an additional 3 billion of production investment in the UK over the first five years alone.

We believe that we can be a force for good in the communities in which we operate. We're committed to being Europe's first net zero carbon entertainment company by 2030. We take pride in our approach to diversity and inclusion: we've been recognised by The Times and Stonewall for our commitment to diversity and we've put in place a new programme to invest 30million across our markets over the next three years to tackle racial injustice.
