As far as I've been able to work out, the only thing that's free (assuming you subscribe to Sky Sports) are sports "highlights" - not much use if you happen to have no interest in sport!! (My OH does, but he's glued to Sky Sports News anyway )

So what happened to the Movies? Do you have to pay for those now?
You could get free Movies & Sports before?

I've just looked at the "Help" section:
Movies - if you subscribe to Sky Movies 1 & 2 most of the movies are free to download, although some are pay per view for £3.95.
Sports - if you subscribe to Sky Sports 1 & 2 it is all free, if you don't you can pay an additional £5 per month to view.
Entertainment - some are buy to keep for £2.50, others are pay per view at £1.50.

These pay per view movie wouldn't be the ones shown on Sky Box Office would they otherwise I can't see any justification for them to charge for some but not for others.

There seems to be a couple of hundred on there, quite a few appear to be free for movies subscribers, plus there are more under the "box office" heading.

sky anytime upgrade
Has anyone else had problems upgrading to Anytime ?
I can't upgrade , logged in as usual (but first time since upgrading to IE7), it asks me to upgrade my client by clicking on (paste)
what's this all about ? anyway, it opens a new browser window and disappears after a few seconds
been in touch with sky technical support and they said "yeh, had a few problems with IE7 try it again tomorrow "

No Mungo, I'm having the same problem. I logged a support call with sky and I' just waiting to see what results.
I'll post here when I know.

... And the reply came as follows:
"Thank you for your email regarding Sky Anytime.
I can confirm that in order to access the Sky Anytime application you must subscribe to either Sky Sports 1 & 2 or Sky Movies 1 & 2.
As you currently subscribe to the 6 Mix package you are not able to access the program.
I trust that this information assists."
Perhaps I was being dim, but as far as I recall, it only said on the qualifications that I had to be a "Sky Subscriber" and have Sky One.
I'll just have to catch stargate each week on one of it's 47 repeats instead...
