A new app, OnPrime TV, developed by Cisco in collaboration with Sky and supported by Encompass Digital Media, is now available in the UK, Italy and Germany on Apple TV. Viewers can now access Sky South Asian, Sky Arabic and Sky Russian channel packs, downlinked and encoded by Encompass.

The service uses the Cisco Infinite Video Platform, and the app can be downloaded via the app store on Apple TV4, or by searching for OnPrime TV on Apple TV3.

Channel packs are available on a 30-day free trial, and range in price from £8.99 ($11) to £17.99 ($22.25) a month. Cisco plans to expand the service to more devices and additional European countries during this year.
