The free service extends the way that Sky+ and Sky HD users can programme their personal video recorder, following the launch of a mobile phone service in July 2006 that allowed people to text a request or browse a guide on their phone.
"Remote Record is perfect for those situations when you hear about a TV show and want to record it there and then, if you're stuck late at work or if you've simply forgotten to record that programme you want to watch," said Stephen Van Rooyen, Sky's director of product management.
"It's about making TV fit around people's increasingly busy lives."
Van Rooyen said that Sky's seven-day TV guide could be viewed in full through the Sky website, with programmes being selected in just a few simple clicks.
Sky customers can also search or browse listings based on time, day or programme name.
