      This is great news, now we just need Channel 4 and 5 on demand content on there and we will have the whole lot.

      I also have the BBC iplayer via my tv and blu-ray player but for reasons best know to themselves ITV have so far refused to put their player on there so this is good news for me.

      Why such a negative post. So you won't personally benefit, but plenty others will. If you don't have anything constructive to add then please refrain from posting.

      I'm hoping when Jeremy Darroch gives Sky's latest results tomorrow when he speaks and I've registered to watch the webcam he gives more detail about Anytime Plus and Fibre Optic Broadband which i'm very keen on. So I'll be watching and listening in hope and anticipation.

      It would be appreciated Ian, if you could give us an update?

      Judging by the issues with the server, it could be a long night for me.

      I only connected my HD box to the router on Saturday, first time ever since September last year lol and it work's great.

      I always watch stuff on iPlayer anyway, and now I can do it on my TV
      A lot of people have been waiting for this, (so I can gather) it's fantastic news and I will be using it once my Sky BB goes live next week.

      How good is it that we can now watch it on the telly... Beats a 15.6" Laptop...

      Re: Sky Anytime+ Goes from Strength to Strength with More Content and Increased Reach

      Surely this is just another way to watch what's available via many newer TV's, Games Consoles, Tablets and Smartphones. Additionally a lot of the BBC content is already on Anytime+ via UKTV.

      However for some Sky customers this move will amalgamate a lot of content via one box and one remote! That will be a definite advantage in some households and to some users.

      One definite advantage of Anytime+ is the programme is downloaded to your hard drive so you can watch at anytime (thus the name of the service) whereas watching iPlayer via my TV is a streaming experience and you have to watch it rather like live TV. The ability to archive BBC programmes via iPlayer (as I can already do via UKTV) will be a massive step forward.

      I look forward to the publication of a new type of TV programme magazine which list last weeks programmes you missed rather that next weeks programmes you might want to watch!

      Of course it is another portal for the BBC iPlayer & ITV Player to become available for people to use.

      The content available from UKTV isn't new content. It is popular though.

      Agreed, this is the major bonus for Sky TV subscribers who have a Sky+ HD STB (and later the SkyHD STB too). Not everyone has a TV with a built in BBC iPlayer or ITV Player application.

      Although I do have the BBC iPlayer app, the others are missing from Samsung's line up. I emailed them for a response yesterday as they are now falling behind other manufacturers in the UK.

      Having the recording on your drive would also mean that you can stop watching it, change to watch something else and then return to the same point later on.

      Currently with the BBC iPlayer app on my TV & HT I have to make a note of where I am and fast forward to that point at a later stage. Since the app is very clunky in comparison to the other apps on my TV, this is very annoying.

      I am wondering too if there will be an expiration date, like there is on the Desktop application?

      Sky to launch new internet TV service

      Sky to launch new internet TV service

      Sky today announced plans to launch a new service allowing customers to watch some of its most popular content over the internet. Taking advantage of the rapid growth in broadband-connected devices, and building on Sky’s experience in multi-platform TV, the new service will
      be an additional choice for people who don’t currently subscribe to a pay TV service.
      Interesting stuff, so they are now targeting people who have yet to take a tv package.

      And also beats the hassle of connecting a laptop's hdmi cable to a tv
