Sky Anytime - who decides?

Just wondering if the stuff that gets recorded to Sky Anytime is chosen by a computer, at random, or does someone who works for Sky actually pick what gets done?

I'd be very interested to know this too, I've had some good films and stuff from the Arts / Crime channels that I wouldn't normally have watched but I keep on getting loads of Kids cartoons which are never watched as the kids aren't allowed anywhere near Sky - they watch enough tv as it is!:D

Very good question. I get some movies and mainly kids programmes. Some docs which are nice to have. WOuld be nice if it was actually based on what we view so we all get something worthwhile.

I had Spiderman cartoons this morning!
 
i thought a better title for this would've been - Sky Anytime - who cares!?

I've just thought of a thread all of my own :rotfl:

I can't see that each and every Sky Anytime is personally selected by a human - it's gotta be computer algorithms, each program viewed will store a code then a central system will work out from the codes what other things are similar from a database.

I'd rather just watch TV and have my 80Gb that I've paid for to store stuff I actually watch. Does that make me crazy? :boring:

It would be fantastic if they could base it on your own viewing habits (a bit like Tivo's recommendation dooberry).

It just seems to me like Anytime stuff comes mainly from a small "core" of channels.

That would be good, the only fault being the way that myself amongst others choose to use the system as it currently stands.

I'm one of those that believes in having a regular clear out of Anytime as that's what's always worked for me.

Trouble is, in its current form, the only way to achieve this is to "Record" the programme first and then delete it from the planner.

By recording a programme in this way, it might signal that I am someone who enjoyed the programme in question when, in fact, I was just trying to delete it.

Funny that this should be brought up as the job Head of Sky Anytime scheduling manager was advirtised in Broadcast trade paper last week, so hopefully once this new person is in place we may see a better selection of programmes and somebody to direct concearns at.
As i believe at present the job is just being done by the standard programme scheduling team and probaly see this as an extra job they dont want .
