Sky New Zealand launches Amazon Alexa skill

Friday 2 February 2018 | 06:59 CET | News
New Zealand operator Sky has launched a Sky TV skill for Amazon Alexa which will allow customers to discover what's on TV using only their voice. The Amazon Echo Family of Alexa-enabled devices are now available in New Zealand and Sky has been working with Amazon to develop one of the inaugural New Zealand launch skills. Sky TV customers who enable the skill for Alexa will be able to interact with the company's Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) to find out more about what's on any of the channels available on the Sky platform.
