      Re: Catch Up TV On Your EPG Very Soon

      If you look at the picture used on Sky's own site to help publicise the Catch Up TV service, you will notice that "On Demand" is shown, not Anytime+.

      This is another change that Sky are making to the EPG and those involved in the Beta testing, including myself, have refrained from calling it this on public forums as it would confuse those not involved.

      Obviously many, including myself, were hoping that the Catch Up TV service would have been launched this morning, but it seems that it may be next week now when it will be released.

      Only BBC, ITV and Channel 5 have confirmed that their relative players will be accessible via the Sky+ HD EPG. Channel 4. I don't know about the other UK television providers. Obviously some are already involved with Sky's On Demand service. I would hope that they too will become even more involved as this service gains pace.

      According to the person who provided the pictures, there is still a 'share' option to be enabled, obviously that will tie in with the App and then people will be able to view the content of a STB around the home as previously hinted at.

      As for the On Demand, that was definitely on the cards, as per this thread.

      Sky Anytime+ to be rebranded as On Demand?

      I wonder when this URL will go live? I guess when the EPG update has taken place, the SR101 is released, and the rebranding starts.

      sky.com/tvondemand as it still diverts to this page http://www.sky.com/products/ways-to-...lus/index.html

      This is enabled by default and is pin protected should you wish to alter the settings.

      When this feature is able to be utilised a post will be made, but for now it is a setting only.

      Re: Catch Up TV On Your EPG Very Soon

      I don't think this will take place in October, according to another PM

      Looks to be imminent though.
      Lets hope so eh?

      At least you have entered, you have to be in it to win it.

      Re: Catch Up TV On Your EPG Very Soon

      Possibly some more clarity.

      The roll out of the new EPG with the On Demand part is due soon.

      The Catch Up part of it (ie the 7 days) is supposedly October.

      More than likely subject to possible change though, as per usual, this is not official information.

      Re: Catch Up TV On Your EPG Very Soon

      Unofficial Source: Apparently there is an update tonight for some people (I presume Beta Testers) which provided there are no bugs should be the one that finally gets rolled out to all. Interestingly, this time, the time span is quoted as a few weeks off.

      I have given up now lol - We know what it looks like, we know how good it looks, we all know the new features, so it looks like, it will be here when its here.

      Sky, please release it asap
