With Christmas on the horizon, many households will be fighting for control of the TV remote. Sky hopes to keep the peace with its new "TV from Sky" PS4 app, which gives console owners the ability to stream live TV and video on-demand. Although it goes by a different name, this is essentially Sky Go. Just like the existing Xbox 360 app, you'll need an active Sky Go Extra subscription (£5 per month) on top of your normal Sky TV membership to use the service. The add-on is touted as a way to download Sky content for offline playback, but consoles are a notable exception; you can only use the new "TV from Sky" app to watch online content on your PS4. So if you have a spotty internet connection, you might want to look elsewhere. Cord-cutters can, of course, opt for Now TV instead to save some pennies and continue streaming some of Sky's content this winter.
