Putting it in perspective


Sky OnDemand - Whats new in March in Movies

, posted: 2-Mar-2016 17:24

Sky is woeful at keeping its subscribers abreast of new content.  And a poor marketer compared to its free-to-air counterparts.  So every month I'll try to document the additions (and deletions) from its new(ish) ondemand library.  

Remember that only Movie subscribers have access to Movie content, Soho subscribers have access to Soho content, although there are some exceptions in the Movie catalogue. But basic subscribers can get "OnDemand", Zone, Box, Vibe or Prime content as its made available.  Some content that has previously been available to Neon subscribers is now becoming available to Sky subscribers (but its not consistent).

Is Sky on Demand in HD?


Author's note by ockel, on 5-Mar-2016 14:26

Many have said no its not in HD.  I've watched a few things and the quality is pretty good - I cant tell that its in SD.
But nothing is coded as HD in the descriptions (compared to recorded content which is coded as such when it is HD).
It's better quality on a big screen than TVNZOnDemand or 3Now appears to be on a little screen.

I havent watched a movie so cant attest to the quality of those.

Well, ever since I got the new software I can no longer buy on demand movies/pay per view movies.

Just pops up with an error code about not connected but that doesn't stop me from watching on demand tv programs.

Spoke to sky phone lady who tells me you cant buy on demand movies /PPV anymore ?!?!

Well makes paying the sky bill easier as it never changes now.

I'm sure she's wrong but cant be bothered waiting on the phone again.
