UK pay-TV company Sky believes that customers do want to watch shows offline. Days after Netflix said that consumers do not want or need a download feature, Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky's Brand Director of TV Products, said that downloading programmes was very popular with Sky customers. He said that hundreds of thousands of Sky customers are using this feature on the Sky Go platform, registering more than 500,000 downloads each week to devices, totalling around 25 million on average a year.
