Satellite & Digital TV Support forums

The ultimate digital TV resource and satellite TV forum with latest news on BskyB, Freesat and Freeview. Technical support.

Sky+HD is being updated in the biggest change to Sky’s EPG since 1998. Once the change is implemented a few changes will be noticed on the layout of the home screen. This is because BskyB have decided to completely change things and want their new EPG to really focus on Catch-up TV.

There has been a huge increase in the demand for Catch-up TV and this new introduction from sky certainly makes it easier to find the on-demand content that customers want. The changes will not be rolled out to everyone just yet, but gradually over the next few months it will be introduced. This means that the on-demand services such as Sky Store and Sky+ Planner will now be alongside the usual channels, making things look smoother and simpler.

For those people who have already seen the change they will notice that the new homepage has...
Panasonic is now offering the award winning Freetime service that comes from Freesat to all their customers that are based in the UK. Previously, the Freetime service was only available via a Humax set-top box. Since it was launched in 2012, the Humax boxes have accounted for 40% of sales. Regardless of whether customers receive their television channels through an aerial or satellite, the service will be available to them.

Panasonic have decided that Freetime will be offered on selected models of their VIERA Smart TV range. The interface will allow users to roll back their television guide, through the past seven days which will enable them to catch up with programmes that they have missed, along with the on-demand services offered by all of the public service broadcasters and YouTube....
You may love it or hate it, but it has probably been very difficult to escape the Die Hard actor, Bruce Willis, advertising Sky broadband on our TV’s. But wait for it, this advert has been banned for being misleading. Hooray I hear some of you say!!!

As a reminder, the ad shows Bruce Willis making a complaint about the current internet speed he is receiving from his current provider with him being clearly told by another character that he should try Sky Broadband because it offers “totally unlimited” broadband.

A narrator on the TV ad then goes on to say this service is available for only £7.50 a month, however upon reading the small print on the screen it states that unfortunately this deal is only available to existing Sky TV customers. But if you were to watch earlier in the advert you will have seen on screen text that states that in order to obtain this service you need to purchase both calls and line rental as part of the Sky Talk package which currently totals £14.50...
Put the beers in the fridge, put your feet up and get ready for the biggest contest Premiership football has seen in a long time. The countdown has most certainly begun as BT and Sky fight to become the ultimate place to go, to watch all the live action from the Barclays Premier League 2013/14. This is certainly a derby not to be missed.

Not two media providers that normally go hand in hand but BT is fighting hard against Sky with the launch of their BT Sports channels this Thursday.

Over a year ago, BT wasn’t even a contender in the world of sports broadcasting but they have tackled Sky in the finals and scored the best goal of the season as they win the rights to showcase Premiership games. This is a win that will go down in history.

John Petter, Head of BT’s Consumer Division is absolutely thrilled. Sky potentially underestimated the potential BT had in winning this fight. On top of claiming a share of rights to broadcast Premiership games they also managed to get their...
