I’ve downloaded a show, will it be deleted from my planner?


In most cases, once you’ve downloaded a show it’ll remain in your planner until you delete it. In some cases, a show will need to be removed from your Sky box for licensing reasons.


To check this, simply go to your planner and highlight a downloaded episode, press 'i', if no date is shown, the show will not be removed from your planner.
