Sky Cinema On Demand HD Error

Hey,

I have been experiencing on odd occasions that when attempting to access Sky Cinema On Demand HD content, I repeatedly get an error message “This show is temporarily unavailable”, followed by a small brief and the code “606”.

I have tried the standard resetting, restarting etc. solutions with no luck.

Also, there are no issues currently, and previously when tried, with the service in the area.

I am fully subscribed to all Sky Content, including HD through a Virgin Package. 

Any help is welcome please!

Re: Sky Cinema On Demand HD Error

I've not seen that error code before, but by means of general advice..

Sky Cinema uses the IP-VOD system, which in laymans terms is delivered over your box's internet connection but made to appear like a normal program rather than "looking" like an app.

Do you have a V6 box (which uses your homehub to connect) or a TiVo (with 10Mb/s inbuilt)? You probably need to narrow down whether the issue is related to the internet speed at the time of playing (so do other internet-based apps like, say, iPlayer or Netflix work ok?) or whether it's specific to certain Sky Cinema titles (so do other films play ok?)

Re: Sky Cinema On Demand HD Error

So I use a TiVo box, which is also plugged in via Ethernet to my hub. All other services that use a network are fine. And all SD content is fine, just odd HD content that won’t load. 

I also can’t seem to find the Error Code 606 anywhere neither. 

If it helps, I’ve been trying to stream Avengers : Endgame in HD through the On Demand menu’s in the Sky Cinema section

Well if it helps, I've just tried to load The Avengers Endgame, and it's played first time no problems - left it for 5 minutes and no issues.
