You have download access to some of the iPlayer content - but it is not the app.


I didn't say it was the app, I just don't see the necessity of signing in on the V6 - I am fairly certain I didn't used to.

No, but you only need to do it once, quick and easy to do.

Re: BBC iplayer problem

My point was you are not using BBC iPlayer on the Sky box.

It was added within the past couple of months that you have to sign in on all devices that use BBC iPlayer. But I've never had to re-sign in.

It's part of the closing of the iPlayer loophole as agreed with the government a few years back

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-36942458

So to ensure that the BBC know who is using iPlayer, the app requires a sign in.

Sky currently doesn't, as they're using their own delivery system so already know who is accessing the content. If or when they get the full iPlayer app, you'll also need a BBC account for then too.

Currently on Full House (XL) TV, Vivid 200 BB and one phone line on Talk more Int.
One V6 box and one earlier TiVo box.
Big up to VM and a double result for me. They are coming next week to replace our old style TiVo box to give us a second V6 at no extra charge. And from August when my current contract expires they are reducing my monthly payments by £30.

Just hoping they have sorted the dreadful broadband service of late. Well over 20 outages in past month, once or twice a day recently. Has been ok for five days now so fingers crossed.

Happy Jim.
