      Isn't that a bit of misadvertising ? SkyPlayer site states that only ONE device can be viewed at any one time per household. So although you have 4 devices registered I don't see how each one could be watching different HD Movies at the same time, which they are suggesting.



      "With Sky Player you can watch TV from Sky on up to 4 computers and 1 Xbox.

      Sky Player device registration takes place automatically when you first watch programmes, or when you sign in on Xbox or Sky Player Software.
      You can only watch Sky Movies and Sky1 programmes on your Xbox 360 and main registered computer.
      You can only watch TV with Sky Player on one device per household at any one time. Viewers must be entitled subscribers or members of their household abuse could result in the suspension of viewing rights."

      Ive signed up, not sure if it will effect me or not, on Samknows.com or whatever
      It says Virgin Media "May be Avalible" and it says Sky LLU/Easynet is avalible.

      Does it actually say 'using Sky Player'? Sky player is not the only way to watch movies, there are many applications which allow this, apart from VoD which will be available shortly

      I can't believe how many Scottish exchanges are on that list.

      Maybe it is time BT were renamed to London and Southeast Telecom
