      I'm not a fan of - "so your computer might be used as a source location for transferring a video to another Sky user".

      I managed to get rid of the software by deleting it manualy by going through the registry.

      Bah. Nothing new or particularly innovative with Sky By Broadband. It's restricted to Windows only for starters due to the Windows Media DRM they've got to use to restrict it's use.

      I tried to use it via my Mac (an Intel one, that dual boots to Windows) and quite honestly given the download times you wouldn't think I had a 16Mbs service from Sky Broadband. Slow, slow, slow, slow, slow.

      If they:

      a) Make it a cross-platform system and
      b) Ensure that the delivery platform can cope with Sky Broadband customers so that the downloads are transferring at the maximum possible speeds across the Sky internal and broadband network

      then perhaps I might be impressed. In the mean time, I'll continue to watch stuff on TV, on DVD and in the cinema.

      I wonder if, whenever you play the file, Windows Media calls back to the licensing server to determine whether the file is playable or not. I'm pretty sure that's how it works. It just gets another license against the hardware that you're using. Or something like that.

      Either way, DRM is the spawn of the devil and is a threat to consumer rights.
