    Hi everyone. please excuse my ignorance as I'm a sky+ newbie. Can I record sky box office movies onto my sky+ hard drive or will the movie be protected by copyright encryption? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Mike.

    You can store Box Office movies on the hard drive, but only for 48 hours. After that time, it will be automatically erased. You only pay for Box Office movies if you watch them, and that includes those that you store on the hard drive.

    If you buy a Box Office movie, usually you can watch it as many times as you like within a specified period - I think that period is currently 48 hours, but they may have changed it. It's been a while since I last bought a Box Office movie. All the information is on the screen where you order the movie.
