Anytime+ soon to be available to all Sky users

20 March 2012

Bitterwallet - Sky collect personal data In these times of austerity and brutal government, pretty much the only thing we’ve got left to cling to is the escapism that can be found by sitting in front of the goggle box and gawping at the goings-on therein.

Fortunately, it’s now going to be even easier to anaesthetise yourself from the pain and misery that goes on outside, as Sky are making their on-demand Anytime+ service available to all and sundry.

Previously, the service was only available to those with Sky Broadband but that should all be changing very soon, and as if by magic, the BBC’s iPlayer will also be added to the Anytime+ offering, making telly-on-demand better and easier than ever.

It is believed that the BBC were reluctant to add iPlayer to Anytime+ while Sky restricted the service to Sky Broadband subscribers. The ITV Player will also be made available through Anytime+ shortly.

In other iPlayer news, the BBC’s catch-up service is now available through the Microsoft Xbox, after what seems like a delay of forever. iPlayer has of course been available through the PS3 and Wii for absolutely ages.

Right, we’re off to watch Richard Bacon getting bullied.

    Sorry, I have never and will never subscribe to SKY in any shape or form, I even dreaded paying £75 for the non-monthly dish and box, just so I could get my HUMAX FOXSAT box up and running. so whats anytime+? Is that a fancy name for SKY+? and do you still have to pay £10 a month for sky+ or is that history to?

    Who gives a f*** who you subscribe to?
  • Q
    Apparently you still need a SKY+ HD box to be able to use this, or is that out of date as well?

    And still, you line the pockets of the wealthy and corrupt.

    1. ITV player has been available on anytime+ for weeks now. 2. No, you don't pay any more for sky+ 3. BBC iPlayer has been on Xbox 360 for ages 4. Yes, you need a Sky HD box for this as it's an on demand extension of anytime 5. You either pay or you don't. If you don't don't moan.
