iMobilize formed part of the huge team responsible for delivering SkyQ. The project was kept secret for over 2 years while it was being developed. The project was so complex and difficult to implement that it was given the code name Ethan as a way to denote it being mission impossible. iMobilize collaborated as part of the iOS team to develop the iOS application. This consisted of developing an iPad app that would essentially act as a second screen. The advantage of having the iPad as a second screen was the fact that it was mobile. Thus the marketing term fluid viewing started to be thrown around. A viewing experience that could transform and move around with it’s user. Some of the features include: – A TV Guide that allows you to browse what’s on TV and record series or shows to your Set Top Box – Watch live TV shows or recordings on your iPad – Download recordings from the Set Top Box to your iPad – A My Q section which allows you to see your recent recordings and downloads – A Top Picks section to get easy access on the home screen to all the latest and greatest Sky content – Take your iPad on the Go and watch live or catch-upTV with simply an internet connection.
