Sky Glass Channel Additions

Sky have made improvements to its Sky Glass service, the dish free service based around its streaming TV.

The most significant change is the addition of 9 channels that had already been available on Sky’s satellite platform, but we’re absent when Sky Glass first launched. These are:

    • Bloomberg
    • Colors HD
    • Colors Rishtey
    • Colors Gujrati
    • GB News
    • NBC News Now
    • TalkTV
    • Zee TV
    • Zee Cinema

Where available, these channels will be HD by default.

Other improvements include the inclusion of YouTube within voice control functions, and a single login process for all BBC services such as BBC iPlayer and BBC Sounds.

ZEE TV and ZEE Cinema to Close

Asian TV channels ZEE TV and ZEE Cinema are expected to close at the end of the year. Both are currently available on Sky (satellite) and Virgin Media (cable).

The move is subject to the renegotiation of commercial contracts, as these don’t expire until 2021. Zee had already closed its other services, including ZEE TV HD and ZEE Punjabi

Like Disney with Disney+, ZEE is focussing its efforts on its online streaming platform, in this case ZEE5.
