Sky has developed tailored packages for the care home sector, enabling operators to offer a home-from-home experience for both residents and visitors, by providing Sky in communal areas and in rooms, as well as Wi-Fi connectivity, powered by The Cloud. This bespoke package has been produced after discovering over 65’s view more TV on Sky than any other age group*.

With a Sky+ box^ activity co-ordinators and planners can pause, rewind and record live TV, – turning residents’ favourite programmes into a truly interactive experience. The combination of TV and WiFi access can also be of benefit to residents’ families, encouraging them to visit more, stay longer and make the care home experience really feel like a “home from home” for residents and loved ones alike.
* Over 65s Sky TV viewing statistics based on Sky IQ data, April 2014. ^Sky+ box costs an additional £55 ex VAT. WiFi availability subject to location. WiFi pricing subject to survey. Set up fee applies.
