Sky TV customers just received a huge ad-skipping upgrade not available anywhere else | The Sun

SKY ad-skipping is a perk many TV fans love and the feature has just got a whole lot better.

Sky Glass and Sky Stream customers will notice that another popular TV app now supports it.

Channel 4 and ITVX already allowed people with the ad-skip pack to fast forward through them.

And you could do the same on Sky's own programmes too.

But now Channel 5's app My5 lets you do it as well.

My5 was only added onto Sky Glass and Sky Stream last week.

It's not only home to Channel 5's shows but also content from 5STAR, 5USA, 5SELECT and 5ACTION.

The service doesn't have a paid option meaning you usually have to sit through ads whether you like it or not.

But Cord Busters realised that Sky's internet-based TV products do let you whizz past the ads on My5.

As far as we're aware, it's the only way you can watch My5 and be able to fast forward through adverts.

Of course, ad-skipping is an add-on that costs £5 per month.

But this latest development makes it more worthwhile, especially if you hate breaks in between your favourite shows.

Sky's yet to officially add My5 on the ad-skipping support list alongside Channel 4 and ITVX.

But tests on a Sky Glass TV by The Sun show that it does indeed work.
