Which Channels/Programmes can we download?

Ultimately the thing at the moment that appeals to me with the V6 is the downloading to the TVA app.

Does anyone know if the channels that allow MRS allow the downloading of the programmes?

Basically I'm looking for a definitive list.
I am guessing none of the Sky Channels as I am thinking that is exclusive to them etc.

Any of you lucky enough to have one now able to answer me please?

Re: Which Channels/Programmes can we download?

Hi BinghamBloke, 

 

Thanks for your post and questions regarding downloading programmes to your apps. 

 

As with everything it is dependant on the content providers and we will of course make sure we are working with our content partners to continually improve things for you. 

 

Currently not all shows are available to stream or download. It does all depend on the content rights from each channel. 

 

Is there a particular channel you were looking at? Maybe I can find out for you Smiley Happy

 

Thanks,

To add another question to this topic.

Currently TVA can't be watched abroad. Presumably, if a programme was downloaded on to a tablet, then this will get round that limitation?

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Hi frank_gm, 

 

Afraid not. 

 

TV Anywhere will continue to work as long as you are connected to a UK wifi network.

Re: Which Channels/Programmes can we download?

@Kath_F What is the point of downloading to a tablet if you still need a network connection?  I was expecting it to be the same as iPlayer and Amazon Prime where you can download stuff to a tablet to watch when you are somewhere without a network connection.

Re: Which Channels/Programmes can we download?

You can watch downloaded programs when offline. First thing I did was turn wifi off to test.

How can TV Anywhere establish you are outside the UK, assuming you disable wifi, mobile data and GPS.

Why does a downloaded programme need a network connection? That is not how downloaded is defined by anyone else.

So can you give us a correct definition of what we can do because the word "download" is not appropriate?

So is Kath_F's reply to my question above incorrect?

To be fair it's a learning curve for all of us

Sorry, Frank, my editing overlapped your post. I see no reason why downloaded programs can't be watched abroad.
