I seen the adverts alot on the t.v saying you can download films from the Sky TV company. So I had a go & it's true, there are no catches.....well one or two, but I'll get on to that later.

You need to be with Sky TV with a certain vewing package (I think as long as you have Sky movies 1 & 2 and/or Sky Sports 1 & 2 you can get it).

Sky By Broadband link

I went on the Sky By Broadband & I signed up for it. They need details of for a normal account, but also they needed your last 8 digits of your Sky Viewing card (You can acess your card number under Services, they tell you exactly where it is).

Once I signed up, I had to download a program that lets you get access films to download.

It said that you need Windows media player 10 or above for it to work, I had WMP11 & it didn't work. I had to uninstall WMP11 & install WMP10 to get it to work.

Go here if you need to uninstall windows media player 11.

I downloaded 'The Pacifier' & it worked, you can only watch it on a pc & got 30 days to see it.

I have used this before, its just a shame you cant use it on more than one pc, I think that if you can set up different accounts then you should be allowed to allocate those accounts to other machines...

Its Rubbbbbbiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiissssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh

I have only downloaded The Pacifier, It was 700smeg & it was a single .wmv file.

I have managed to put it on a disc but only as a data disc. I haven't looked into putting onto disk to be honest

Well you can guarantee that the quality is gonna be good (not a shaky cam) & its gonna be the film you are downloading.

I never get a good connection with *REMOVED*, via sky you get the max connection all the way.

Well I can download a 50MB file in less than 20 minutes, it depends how many seeders you have or/and what software you use.

I find *REMOVED* to be a hassle, the instructions are always crap. Crap connection, turns my computer off etc....

I did watch the 2nd series of lost on it, so I can't argue!

50 smeg files are easy to download, its the 500smeg+ that causes the problems

Is that all, I can download files a lot faster than that

Gjohn have you tried some of the other methods to get *REMOVED* working, like a different client, configuring your settings for the *REMOVED*, sometimes little tweaks can work better...
