Sky to let iPad owners watch Planner recordings

Sky is in the process of developing an app for the iPad that will let Sky+ users stream the saved shows and movies on their Sky box to their tablet.

In a candid one-two-one chat with Pocket-lint, Simon Rexworthy, controller of acquisitions at Sky Movies, said that an app was in development and coming soon.

Rexworthy wouldn't expand when pushed as to when "shortly" actually was, but suggested we wouldn't have long to wait.

"The app would let you watch what you've saved on the go," Rexworthy added.

We suspect the app would be very much welcomed by many an iPad-owning, Sky-using subscriber.

Such an app means that if you've remembered to save the movie or TV show, as long as you've got an internet connection, you could access your box to watch them it even if you weren't at home.

The promise of a new Sky app isn't the only thing new at Sky. The company has also shown Pocket-lint its plans for a new refresh to the Sky box EPG which is scheduled to be rolled out at the end of May.
