      I am just downloading "Housewife 49" and its at 50%.
      It says "This program will be deleted at 11.59pm Tue 01 Jan".

      Apart from it being past that date - unless they mean next year - is this deleted from anytime or deleted from my box?

      It will automatically be removed from your STB on that date in 2013.

      I suspect that all the ITV Player content is the same for the moment as the couple I downloaded from there had the same dates.

      Is this a new feature Sky have brought in as it appears on some Sky Anytime (not Sky Anytime Plus) programmes?

      No, they have always had time limits on some material on Anytime as far as I know.

      I guess because in some cases the time is so long that we tend to forget about the film or programme by the time it comes to deletion date.

      It is possibly a licensing issue.

      I would agree. Since most of the on-line content with different Players is often time limited, I would imagine that they will insist that such content has an expiry date.
