Sky + by mobile

Sky has introduced Remote Record a new service that enables viewers to set their Sky+ by mobile phone. It will be available as an SMS service, on mobile internet and at the Sky.c*m website. Sky claim the service will allow Sky+ and Sky HD users to request remote recording from anywhere in the world.

Viewers with a 2.5G or 3G phone who have downloaded the satellite broadcaster's "Sky by mobile" application can already view Sky's seven-day TV guide on their phone but will now be able to select programmes to record by sending a short message with programme details to a dedicated number.

The service will not cost customers any extra above their mobile operator's existing charges.
