GRRR!!! still hot though!

Title is slightly misleading...

It's not just on Sky HD... regular Sky gets free movies too:

Sky Movies Showcase on channel 303
Sky Movies Showcase HD on channel 314

Just noticed that you do say this in your message text.

Not a Movie subscriber but...If I record a Sky movie sometime between now and Friday, is it likely that I'll be able to watch it over the weekend while the Movie channels are free?

How do you tune into these channels on freesat hd box?
Whats the channel numbers on the freesat hd box?

They will still require a viewing card they'll be Free to View not Free to Air so no Freesat viewers won't be able to view.

I'm fairly certain that will be the case but you might want to double check

Shame theres no HD horror films on Halloween (_;)

It's only selected films, not all of them, that's probably the issue.

HI I scribe to all channels bar sports 1/2/3/ etc but wasnt able to veiw these on the last few sports free weekends why is this when its free pass?

We have Virgin at work & Sky at home; was able to view on Virgin but Sky wouldn't unscramble. We have 2nd hand kit off Ebay but no sub to ANY paid channels - no free pass

Thought the selection was pretty bad, kids were happy on Sunday though!
