Soak Up The Summer With Sky Select

This summer on Sky sees the eagerly anticipated second season of Riviera, a Sky original drama.

Sky’s content, delivered in stunning high definition through Sky Select, brings hotel guests a wealth of entertainment to choose from including original series to the best of the US, all in one place, helping to increase guest satisfaction.

The first season of Riviera was Sky’s most successful original commission to date with an audience of 2.3m per episode, and over 20m downloads.

Riviera season 2 will air on Sky Atlantic on Thursday 23rd May and sees returning cast members Julia Stiles, Lena Olin, Roxane Duran and Dimitri Leonidas joined in the sun-soaked south of France by Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Juliet Stevenson (Truly, Madly, Deeply), Poppy Delevingne (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Jack Fox (Kids In Love) and Grégory Fitoussi (World War Z).

The show promises to give fans even more of what they love, with more glamour, more intrigue and more betrayal: all set against the gorgeous backdrop of the playground of the super-rich.

Riviera’s highly anticipated return picks up in the immediate aftermath of the explosive first series finale, where the Clios family is faced with the tragic death of one of their own. Only this time, the blood is on the hands of our female protagonist, Georgina.

The Riviera has never been so tempestuous. Torn between her past and her present, can Georgina navigate her way to safer waters or will she lose her place in a world that she has grown to control?  

According to research, 84% of guests believe that the TV service in a hotel room should be as good as they have at home.[1]  In addition to this, seven out of ten guests said it was important to have both Sky TV and a large screen HD TV in their hotel bedroom[2].

With Sky Select, hoteliers can choose from 96 satellite channels, including guests’ favourite Sky channels, with seven channels in HD as standard, while also incorporating their guests’ favourite Freeview and foreign channels distributed over the existing infrastructure.
