      Sky Anytime Player “Waste of Time”
      What sounded a great idea, turned out to be a complete waste of time? Logged In ok but stupid thing did nothing shows ads and useless links “What Links” Did not show programmes to click on and run?
      Un-Installed it! BBCi Player,ITV Catch Up are much better and they work. Sorry Sky but this one is a flop

      Yes, despite all the criticism of the money spent of developing BBC iPlayer, there's no arguing with the fact that it's easy to use (on many platforms now including Apple Mac computers) and it works!

      Even ITV Catchup now works on the Mac, but there isn't much on ITV that I want to watch really.

      Sadly, SkyPlayer is a disappointment - it's not Mac compatible (Sky helpfully advise me to install Windows on my Mac so that I can use SkyPlayer!) and it doesn't work too well on PC by the sound of it...

      I used it for 1 day, got fed up and uninstalled it. Would not mind retrying if they come out with a version which works on PS3 as I dont like watching TV stuff on my PC at all

      I'll recind my last post on this thread as my Sky players up and working now! (Have got a thread headed 'Wallah)

      So far I've managed to watch a film, download two films and watch a documentary. After getting no where via phone, I emailed them saying as I'd already phoned them, I wasn't ringing them again and asked them to sort it-they have

      The thing I've noticed is the clarity of the screening-amazing!
