Good Evening Brownies17.


Thank you for your first post to the community and welcome to the Sky Help Forum.


Here are some typical file sizes for programmes available through On Demand. HD programmes are far larger than those in SD (Standard Definition).

  • Sports (in SD) 50 minutes 450MB

  • Movie  (in SD) 90 minutes 915MB

  • Movie  (in HD) 90 minutes 3,000MB

Downloads through On Demand will contribute towards any usage caps imposed by your broadband provider. For a broadband service with no usage caps, we recommend Sky Broadband Unlimited.

If this resolves your enquiry please mark this as an accepted solution, otherwise please post on the relevant board on the forum where the community or we can assist further.


Kind Regards
