There's been many threads based around the new Anytime service from Sky, but theres one key point that Sky seem to have missed. Anytime - Video on Demand - should be on demand! We've all got Sky+ functionality, and can record anything we want. What this is giving us is a sample of other programming. Surely a better way of doing this is to allow you to pick a programme from the past and download it. Any future broadcasts you can set to record yourself. All Sky seem to be doing at the moment is dumping a shedload of garbage onto my drive and getting some dippy bird to tell me what I 'might' get if I'm lucky. For instance - I've got the last 3 episodes of Life on Mars on my old Sky+ box (and can't be bothered to plug it back in to watch them). I'd rather be able to search for it in a planner of some kind, and get them downloaded over a couple of nights. If Sky's idea of VOD is to just tape whats on telly that night, then as a service it will never take off. There's plenty of channels that specialise in repeats - just never the ones you want.
