Sky News unveils new-look website

Sky News has redesigned its website with more focus on video and interactive content.

Sky said that its navigation had been simplified and that there was a more prominent role for comment and analysis with a broader range of views from Sky News correspondents and specialists.

The site is powered by a new bespoke content management system that will power all of Sky News' digital platforms, which it said 'allows for more flexible story-telling, to give users a more immersive experience, providing background information that helps put breaking news into context".

Andrew Hawken, head of editorial at Sky News Digital, said: 'The new site is real progress for us, and completes our world-class multi-platform offering.

'Viewers will find the site easier to navigate, with all the top stories in one place and with much more detail, as well as additional benefits like a broader range of comment and analysis pieces and more detailed weather service."

John Jelley, executive producer at Sky News Online added: 'We went back to the drawing board to give video and rich interactive media a more central role in the site.

'We wanted to make the most of a new content management system to produce some of the web's best story experiences – where any type of content can take the lead, and where users can explore a full range of relevant context, all on the same page."
