      New sky+ hd box and sky on demand

      I have a new box and don't have broadband. I see on sky's website that on demand can still be used if someone doesn't have broadband or lives in Ireland. It says just press red button in the sky guide. I have tried that but it says nothing available. Does it take a while for the programmes to build up or should they be there straight away. It says check you have a sky+ subscription (which i have) and try in a few hours. Any answers would be appreciated.

      It can take a while to build up a selection of programmes if you don't have a network connection. I would leave it 24 hours then check again. Do you have your own dish as this service is not available when connected to a communal dish if you only have a single satellite feed connected?

      Many thanks. That is what I thought as I know the old anytime used to take a while to build up.

      Without a network connection you will only get the old Anytime+ in its new disguise, you will not get the true On Demand service. As said, it can take quite a few days to fill up, make sure your box remains in Standby overnight, don't turn it right off or you will get very little.
