I have paid for Sky complete package for ages now (I Know what a mug!); anyway I decided that enough was enough and have dropped the sports and movies, but retained Sky Variety & Music Mix for £17/month. Imagine my disapointment when I tried to view a previously recorded movie, only to be greeted by the "to upgrade your package contact ...." screen.
Basically, even though I have got Sky+, I cannot watch movies I have recorded - even though theoretically I paid for them whilst I was a movies subscriber.
So much for stockpiling 10 movies or so before I cancelled, huh.
