ITV and Sky today announced a partnership which will see ITV, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV added to the Sky Go service. This means that Sky subscribers will be able to stream games from the World Cup and catch TV shows such as Coronation Street, Midsomer Murders, and Emmerdale.
The new Sky-exclusive ITV Encore service will also arrive when it launches on June 9th. This channel will be dedicated to some of the most talked-about dramas on TV including Whitechapel and Broadchurch. Sky Go users will also be able to catch-up on missed episodes or choose from a library of ITV drama box sets, while on demand content from other ITV channels will be available later this year.
This brings the total number of channels available on Sky Go to 63, with E! Home and Lifetime also coming this summer.
