    Did anyone see that little article in the February edition of Home Cinema Choice about Sky+ To Go?

    The idea is that you can download programs from your main Sky+ box onto a Sky personal video player and watch them whilst away or travelling etc etc

    What a cracking idea! :smashin:

    It said it was scheduled for late 2005 and have tried to find out a bit more about it without success.

    Wondered if anyone had any further info or comments on it!

    Who wants to bet that

    a)The Sky video player will cost ££££'s

    b)There will be an additional "user fee" for this service?

    i want the next stage to be....

    instead of having the x amount of movie channels (sky movies 1 - 9 etc)

    you have one. you select it and you get to a menu. it has "latest movies added to sky" "sky box office" and "search A-Z" you then choose from the 100's of movies that sky has in its catalogue and watch it when u want. and instead of it being saved on the HDD. a little memory file taking up 1% like a little bookmark that you can click on and it resumes play of the movie.

    thats wat i'd like. and i'd pay a bit extra to have ZERO adverts on all channels. just continuous programming.

    that'd be nice :D

    id agree with both of davidcotton's points to be honest. It will madly expensive and require a super duper every channel subscription. I like Sky for most things apart from their prices! (after having a dodgy Sky+ box fixed)...

    But you can do this now!

    Just buy yourself an Archos AV400 (they start at around £320 for the 20gb version)

    Admittedly, you can only record in real time but it does have timer control and if you are using an ordinary SKY box then you can set it to auto channel change.
    (there is a wee infra red thingy that comes with the Archos machine so you can set it to change the channels on a SKY+ box automatically)

    You can now sit on the train/bus and watch Corrie on the go...what could be better?

    I've had an Archos 40gb for a year now and copy Sky films, and regular programs some times, all the time using the scart leads that come with it and its a great bit of kit.
