Sky will add three more pay-TV channels to the Catch Up section of its On Demand service this summer.
The arrival of Fox, SyFy and Universal will bring Sky’s Catch-Up roster to 20 channels available to anyone with a Sky+HD box and Sky TV subscription.
Subscribers to Entertainment Extra and higher packages will also be able to watch a new Disney on demand library later this summer.

More than two million of Sky’s 10-million-plus customers have downloaded catch-up or box sets via Sky On Demand, with the finale of Game of Thrones season two downloaded 41,000 times in the second week of June.
The Catch Up section for Sky On Demand already includes seven days of highlights from the full roster of BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 channels, plus the National Geographic Channel, History and Crime & Investigation Channel.
Sky On Demand can be accessed by connecting any Sky+HD to any broadband connection with more than 2Mbps, although a small Sky Showcase selection is downloaded via satellite.
