      Limited Anytime TV content

      I am disappointed by the small number of programmes available via Anytime TV particularly when compared to what is available on Anytime Pc

      I was expecting everything that is on Anytime PC to be available on both platforms but this does not seem to be the case.

      Last season I enjoyed watching the 5 mins of each Premier League football match that were available via the pc. I found that more convenient than watching Match of the Day. I was hoping they would also be provided through Anytime TV but judging by the total lack of sports programmes I suppose this is unlikely.

      Does anyone know why there is such a limited choice?

      I agree!!!

      The amount & the quality of the Anytime content is baaaaaad!!!!

      Sky keep putting Movies on there (when i dont have Sky Movies) & lots of c**p from Sky arts (who the hell watches Sky Art???)

      Hopefully Sky will get there act together & somehow launch a propper On-Demand service

      Not only that if you do have films premiere's don't seem to turn up and the keep giving you endless repeats of Herbie and DR Dolittle. Also no kids in my house why do I keep getting their programmes

      I totally agree, surely with all the latest technology availaible to Sky they should be able to monitor viewing habits and download programmes that we may consider to be of interest. I do understand them downloading progarmes from channels we are not suscribed to, this makes commercial sense. However what is the point of downloading kids programmes when there are no kids in the house. I hate to say this but at this stage the Virgin Media on demand service is better . Sky should not be allowed to get complacent on this matter , just because consumers are coming to Sky rather than Virgin Media .

      I'm unsure as to the purpose of SA on a Sky+ box. With a full Sky package I can watch any programme I like; all this seems to do is save random programmes to the hard drive. I'd prefer all that space to use as I want.

      ^^^^^^^^^
      Couldn't agree more, considering it fills half your disk with useless programs, it is a complete waste of space. Is there anyway you can 'turn it off' and get the full use of the hardisk?

      On eBay they sell 250GB HDDs and a kit for upgrading Sky+ boxes (unofficially, invalidating any warranty, doubtless); they say you automatically lose a third of it for internal use. I thought that was incase you wanted to pause and replay, that sort of thing.
