      Sky VOD Final Trials Soon

      We have been tipped off that Sky's "pull" VOD (Video On Demand) service, will be starting it's final trials very soon. Rumour has it, that this will be rolled out to some staff as well as select others to put it through it's paces.

      We understand that if the trials go to plan, this VOD service will then be released to the mass market around April 2010 (although this is not a definite timeline).

      We also understand that the roll out will be box and software dependent, and so those of us with different makes of boxes, may just have to wait, until its our turn. Nothing new there then.

      Re: Sky VOD Final Trials Soon

      What is this for? Is it Sky HD boxes (since they have an ethernet port) or will there be an option for Sky+ using an addon in the PCMCIA port?

      Also what additional charges will there be?

      surely the software depandand bit will be poiting at boxes with the new epg, and the new 500gb amstrad?
      but if the epg is anything to go by, only half of the hd customers will have the new epg, and there for the VOD. do you agree?

      Well they can pick me for the trial if they want, I've got a network feed all ready to my HD box, so they wont need to supply any Homeplugs or anything. Go on Sky

      im willing, take me, but the 500gb amstrad may be picked for the tests, and the 500gb box may be marketed as Sky+HD Premium Package,
      16.00 Sky Package
      13.00 HD Premium Pack
      - Sky+ Subscription (Sky+)
      - Sky+HD Subscription (Sky+HD) (10.00) (12-Month)
      - Sky+HD Premium Subscription (VOD) (10.00 Non Subs/ 3.00 Subscribers) (12-Month)

      Thumbs up Re: Sky VOD Final Trials Soon

      I thought I'd post what I had posted on DS regarding Sky's VoD

      Jeremy Darroch confirms that Sky VoD will be part of the HD subscription (price wise), he wisely however doesn't tell us anything else. If you want to listen to the interview, click me and chose '18 Nov 2009 - Morgan Stanley TMT Conference'

      Re: Sky VOD Final Trials Soon

      Has anyone heard or in the know regarding the trials? How well they're going? Is there a launch date near? Mind you, Sky may be keeping very tight lipped, given the delays they had with the new EPG.

      Re: Sky VOD Final Trials Soon

      Spoke to a friend on this one who work within the SKY marketing/advertising HQ.

      He is working on the project and its launch. Apparently his weekly meetings wit the project team for SKY VOD tell him its July 2010 launch with testing and planning work going on all the way up to launch.

      So i guess testing may be taking place now or v soon - he is going to ask if any slots/testers already in place and if i can be added to top of list etc.

      Hope this helps
