Just spotted a post on Rory’s blog about Sky’s new “Sky by Broadband” service. Looks like you can use your current subscription to pump Sky directly to a PC (or more than one). Must play with it when I get home. Sounds like their Sky MultiRoom product will get a hit with this sort of service ….
Anyway the service is available for Sky Movies 1 and 2 and Sky Sport, if you current subscription contains these channels (you’ll need to supply your Sky Card Number when you register) and allows you to download programs and watch them at your convenience. Content is protected with a 30-day DRM license, after which you can download the movie again if you want. Still .. excellent way for me to implement VOD at home 🙂
