Just tried Back to the Future III. Got error 319. That was after part II packing in halfway through with a different error code but the same message that the service was unavailable. At least that one restarted OK. Thought "Ok, I'll try it on my PC". None of the series is available in 'On Demand' there. What is going on?
The discrepancy between TV and PC is hardly minor as the number of SF Sky movies on the TV menu is 73 but only 27 are available from the web menu. Sort it out.
Actually, I have a PC linked to my big-screen TV but otherwise your summary is right. :-)
What I objected to was having to go 3 stages to find a program: (1) Try Tivo menu. One of the three films not in HD. (2) Try VM TV Anywhere on the PC. None of the three films there. (3) Try Sky online menu. There they are.
What VM now seem to be saying is don't bother looking at our on-line TV Anywhere menu for Sky films but go direct to Sky. OK, but then how do we get to access other TV programmes, many of which are missing from the shambolic VM menus?
