      Re: Forced downloads

      There is no need for blasphemy
      To answer your questions, no one knows how many downloads you will get a month, very few care as most are on Unlimited downloads, it is costing you nothing. If you look here you will see there are several hundreds viewing the forum at this moment - http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/

      You don't have to use Sky Player, no one forces you to. BBC Player, STV Player, Demand 5 and 4oD are all better so why use it?

      You can remove Kontiki by following the instructions here - http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-p...g-kontiki.html

      Well as a confirmed atheist who doesnt believe in ghosts and goblins your blasphemy charge does not apply and Im sure the recent blasphemies of the roman catholic "church" who have broken almost every commandment and teachings of the christ is far more worrying than my small perceived transgression but for the sake of conviviality I take your point .

      Hi Tom probably saw what I did Kirk. Gaelic for Church and then the mentioning of Christ.

      The P2P application which Sky player uses to download/upload programs.
