Sky: Why we like apps over Smart TV services | News | TechRadar UK

Sky believes that the trend towards connected TV services from some of the leading manufacturers is actually a play for a content platform, and that apps on tablets, laptops and phones provide a better user experience.

In an interview for TechRadar’s Brit Week, Sky’s director of product development, Brian Lenz, explained that the company’s policy was to leave the viewing experience on the television screen as clean as possible.
