no movies i want to see out of that list, maybe atonement but thats about it.

I'll record it, its not 100% clear whether you can record and watch at a later date (as happened in a previous fee weekend) or not, but i can cope if not.

The T&Cs say it is only for Sky customers - give it a try come 18.00.

good plan. Technically, I am a Sky customer, I spent £20 on their Free to View card. I'm just not a very good customer!!

I just watched Enchanted too. What a lovely little film, and it looked pretty darned nice in HD. Recording Sarah Marshall now, and I hope to catch West Side Story on Sunday. Damn Sky and their regular enticements! I'm close to cracking...

Better than a poke in the eye, although there doesn't seem to be a great deal on.

I checked and no. Its basically just Sky Screen 1 (311) and Sky Screen 1 HD (314), although you still need HD pack for the HD channel.

Quotes on another site that if you record (Sky+) any of these movies they need to be watched before the weekend is over.

It's been a long time since i've been eager to watch anything on sky movies premier and the rest of the channels recycle the same movies for ages with the odd one I'll re-watch. I'd bin the whole thing lot except i'd have to start paying the multiroom sub so i'd only save about £6 a month. Hmm.. maybe after christmas, just in case something decent turns up.

One of the movies I Sky+'d played this morning ok when I checked it - didn't watch it all though to see if it cuts off - won't be overally bothered if it doesn't work anyhow.

Ah. Mine said enter pin earlier, so I assumed it was scrambled. But now it appears to work. So maybe it was because of the cert (Lion for Lambs, 15).
