It is said that Movie and TV fans will no longer have to rely on their PC's or mobile devices to catch up with their favorite shows and cable TV programs. The viewers will now have the ability to directly stream their favorite programs and even movies on their BIG TV screen at home. You can now watch TV series and movies via cloud with the use of this. This is the company's answer to the long time need to catch up with the shows you missed and even pause, play and rewind them with the use of Sky On Demand via iWantTV. Sky On-Demand is made possible by the impressive and rapidly growing video-on-demand library of iWant TV and allows us to watch both local and foreign cable TV shows using their TV at home.

It is said that this is to bring the customer's viewing experience at home to the next level! On-Demand also brings video playback functionality and personal playlist creation to TV screens. Although SKY On-Demand can be accessed using other wired home internet providers, this value added service is best experienced with SKYbroadband. Aside from its fast internet connection, SKYbroadband subscribers can also enjoy premium access to special foreign and local movie titles from Paramount Pictures, NBC-Universal, Star Cinema, Regal Films and Viva Films.
