Just wondering, if we were to delete Rialto from our Sky subscription, would it result in us loosing the few programs from Rialto that we have previously recorded but not yet watched?

All I remember been able to find was "it may, or it may not" so particularly interested in the case of Rialto.

My guess is that you won't be able to watch it once you have cancelled the Rialto.

When we recorded a sky box office and didn't pay it said that we weren't authorized. My guess is that is checks before you watch.

Guess I was wrong...

You're fine with Sky Movies or Rialto - I've recorded movies, cancelled subscription and still had access.

It's different for pay per view events/on demand, so best to check these first.

I think Sky has different rules for different channels as to how long your recordings will be viewable. This is because of the promises they make to individual content providers (read something like that on their FAQ). The "unathorized" message is probably a result of waiting too long to watch, regardless of whether you are still a subscriber.

Just an educated guess though.

Last year I had movies free for a month, and cancelled it after the free month. Went to watch the recordings I had left a few days later and it told me I had to subscribe.
