You can't unless you have a time machine.

Re: Recording films

You could create a Wishlist for the film, it will then be recorded if it is ever re-shown.

Sky can record in the past! They should advertise this feature it's almost like magic

...but, presumeably, only from On Demand, not from Live TV.

Re: Recording films

Sky allows downloading of On Demand content to their boxes as some customers have slower ADSL connections & cannot stream the live content without buffering. With minimum speeds being higher on Virgin broadband connections this feature is not necessary.

Just as we can watch Sky Cinema films at any time via OD/catch up, so can Sky customers. They can also download them & view them for a set period. This is what I believe the OP is referring too.

Re: Recording films

The difference being Sky they can download them in HD and we usually can't stream in HD due to being not uploaded or removed if it was.

It has been a year of this lack of HD on demand movies now. Shocking
