      DRM has now appeared onto Sky Anytime

      One of this weeks film premieres is Gran Turino with Clint Eastwood, I went to anytime to see if it had been downloaded and sure enough it was there.

      When I hit the record button to place it into my planner I got a message saying that it will be deleted from the box by May 27.

      Now I know that it is 2 months to watch it but we have a lot of stuff on my box and getting my wife to watch something can be a job (she still hasn't seen the last 10 episodes of Battlestar Galactica which are on the box).

      So I assume that DRM is coming to Anytime as a prelude to the VOD coming this summer?

      Anyways as I can't expect my wife to watch it that quick I tagged it to be recorded on Sky Movies premiere and nuts to anytime.

      Time-sensitive anytime content has been around since the end of last year, though it is very few recordings that have it atm.

      In fact, this is the first one i've heard of this month.

      I think its mainly testing for VOD, but there will be other reasons for it too.

      A time limit is also attached to Marina and the Diamonds, from "Sky Songs", which will be deleted at 0.00am Mon 8th March. Doesn't give you very long to watch that, does it?!
