Looks like these will be coming later this year for customers with Sky LLU Unlimited broadband and Sky+HD boxes.

Edit. Further research (Google!) suggests Anytime + will be available to non Sky broadband subscribers.

    Not surprised to see this as there have been press reports saying that Sky are struggling at the moment :

    - Losing their client base with people moving to their rivals (netfix, lovefilm, etc.).

    - Not getting as many new customers joining them as per previous years.

    - They will also probably have to significantly increase their bid when the premiership football contract comes up for renewal or they will lose it to one of their rivals (ESPN, Disney, etc.). The reports also questioned whether Sky had the finances to out bid their rivals.

    Probably not a good time to buy Sky shares.

    Dunno about Sky, but News Corp are estimated to be sitting on a $12 billion cash pile-you'd need deep pockets to outbid that!
