Why are not all of the series on anytime+

Why are not all of the series on anytime+, ie 24, the first 5 episodes where there, now they have been replaced with the next 5 episodes, why is this, its not really tv on demand if the only put 5 episodes on at a time, will this be changing?

Hi richhodg99,

 

I will find out if we have an answer to this as I didn't realise they had replaced episodes with new ones for 24. Regarding other series we hope to add more over time to improve the content available so best to keep an eye out for these being added.

Hi richhodg99,

 

The reason only some episodes are on Sky Anytime+ for donwload from certain programmes and series is down to the current rights agreements with the content holders.

 

In some cases we are only allowed to have a set number of episodes on the Sky Anytime+ service at any given time meaning as new episodes are added we have to remove older episodes to comply with the limits set in the agreement.

Is this the same for Sky Atlantic content?

Hi rich,

 

I'm afraid this is on a per-programme, per-series basis as the rights are obtained in this manner. I'm unable to confirm whether Sky Atlantic content is affected by this as I do not have that information however I will ask for you.

Re: Why are not all of the series on anytime+

This is for me the most disappointing aspect of the Anytime+ service.  I settled down the other day to start watching The Sopranos from the start only to find the first 3 episodes had just been removed!  Certain episodes of some series are getting removed more quickly than they do from the normal Anytime (I have the 1TB box :smileyhappy:).

 

May we expect a more customer friendly approach by Sky to these rights issues in future now Anytime+ is becoming well established?
