      You will be able to watch recordings made on free to veiw/air, you will not be able to watch anything from the Premium or Entertainment pack, unless they are also FTV/A.

      I don't have movies or sport. I was thinking of Sky 1 or Atlantic or 5HD?

      I already answered that question in my previous post.

      Sorry, I replied before I saw your post. I guess I will have to stay up late on the 1st January to watch all the recordings

      Sky 1 and Atlantic are part of the Entertainment pack, I don't think they are on Freesat, so you will not get them.

      Hi mexicano,

      We believe you should also be able to get BBC iPlayer from On Demand with just the Sky+ subscription provided your box is connected to the internet. Perhaps you would be so kind as to confirm this for us next year, if you do decide to re-instate your Sky+ subscription.

      Yes, you should also get the ITV a Ch5 players as well and if you have the Sky+ functions, you could record them. Will be nice to know if you do.
