      I have just downloaded and part watched a program from Sky Arts which I did not subscribe to before. So it looks like it is working for me. Its the Bob Dylan '66 Tour which I tried to download previously but got the 'you must update notice'.

      I could watch Sky Arts prior to all the changes. I suspect it was available on the Entertainment pack.

      I still can't view the others via Anytime+ today.

      Sky Arts was previously part of the 'Style and Culture' pack which I had no interest in, so I did not subscribe. I had Variety, Knowledge, Kids and News. The other pack I did not have was Music. I must check if I now get Music.


      Yep, I now get Music. My granddaughter will be pleased

      That's what I thought, but I didn't subscribe to that package.

      Previously I only subscribed to:
      • Variety Pack
      • Knowledge Pack
      • Children's Pack
      • Movies Pack
      • HD Pack

      Sky Arts was available for me on the Variety pack only. I am 100% sure it was part of the Variety pack.

      Anyime+ problem is non-logical, as can't play Disc Realtime, but can play Good Food, both of which weren't available to me on Variety pack, but are now playable on sky tv on basic entertainment pack.

      Sky seemed to have closed the loophole of being able to play sky1 hd on showcase without an hd sub; maybe I shoud have kept schtum on that "feature"

      Seems we were both right. Sky Arts, with MTV moved to the Variety pack in February of this year, an announcement I missed. From DS - Sky Arts 1&2 sneaked into the Variety pack! - Broadcasting - Digital Spy Forums

      No problem. Sky keep changing their packages from time to time so it can be hard to keep up.

      Recently Sky announced that some of the UKTV channels would become available on Anytime+ and as HD channels.

      Watch, Gold, Dave, alibi, Home, Good Food & Eden do now have some of their content on Anytime+.

      Good Food, Eden now have their respective HD channels, but not any others yet. From the wording of the announcement I though that it would be more.

      This brings the total of HD channels available for Sky subscribers to 54, plus two 'demo' HD channels and Sky 3D.

      Is it worth making the effort to contact sky on why disc realtime won't anytime+ for me?

      I apologise for failing to update this thread.

      I've been in contact with Sky and it still doesn't work.

      Some 'codes' have been sent several times to my STB now and they've had no luck.

      I should have called them again today but I've been distracted.
