UKTV channels including Dave, Gold and Watch are now available on Sky On Demand, Sky Go and Now TV.
Sky TV subscribers have long been able to enjoy the delights of UKTV’s finest channels but they’ve not been able to access them on a catch-up or on demand basic.
That’s changed now with pay TV-exclusive channels like Gold, Watch, Alibi, Dave HD, Good Food, Eden and Home now able to watch on the go.
