New Sky Q app lets you take recordings on the go

Sky has launched a new Sky Q mobile app, which lets you watch live TV and on demand shows while you’re on the move. No more waiting to get home to catch up on Made In Chelsea, or worrying about whether you remembered to record the latest episode of Westworld.

Sky Q is the company's top-end TV service. It's based around 'fluid viewing'- essentially marketing babble for: 'lets you watch shows seamlessly between different rooms and devices'.

The new app slots into that infrastructure - so for example, you could start watching Westworld on your main TV, pick up your phone and pick up exactly where you left off on the toilet. We're not saying you should, mind you - just that you could.

The app also has a host of other handy features, such as the ability to set up home recording from your phone. You can also download recorded programmes onto your phone, so you can watch them while out and about - even if you don't have an internet connection.

If you are online though, you can use the streaming feature that lets you stream live TV or watch on demand shows from the channels you subscribe to. So if you're bored on the bus home and want to catch up on A League of Their Own, you can.

Luke Bradley-Jones, the Brand Director of TV and Content Products said: "We know Sky Q customers love the flexibility of watching TV on their terms… customers can now look forward to their daily commute or a long car journey, while they catch up on the latest and best TV from Sky."

The Sky Q app is now out and available for download on both iOS and Android.
