SkyQ rolls out a number of new features, including a new expanded view and Disney+ in HDR.

Sky has rolled out a new update for SkyQ customers that has seen its on-screen guide "go widescreen".

The static menu on the left, which also includes a picture-in-picture view of the current channel, has become collapsible to allow a third more information to be shown on screen.

New "show centres" gather all content relating to a specific show together on one page, including recordings, on-demand episodes and future schedule information.

In sports, SkyQ has rolled out "sports centres" that gather live, on-demand, podcast and YouTube content in one place - in addition to features such as league tables and fixture lists - all of which can be accessed quickly by using the voice remote.

The broadcaster has also pledged to offer more nature documentaries and cinemas in HDR quality this side of Christmas, with live HDR sport following in 2021.
