Every time I try to record a film on Sky Movies, I get the Enter your pin number message at the bottom of the screen and the film doesn't come on until you enter this pin number. I phoned sky about this and basically asked them if I could get rid of this procedure as it was inconvenient. They told me that it was for parental control and it goes on all night until early morning.
I don't have any children living at home (they are all grown up now and even if I did have young ones in the house, I don't think they would be up all night watching movies on Sky. So Im starting to wonder if they are really doing this to stop you recording films when you are not there. Well if thats NOT the case, then why can't you override this annoying pin number?
Without the facility to record films unattended Sky Movies isn't really any good to me
I only used to record films because I wasnt around at the time they were broadcast and wanted to watch them later on - at my convenience! They have basically taken away your right to choose when and where you watch the film and I for one will probably cancel my sky subscription because of this. Without the facility to record films unattended Sky Movies isn't really any good to me.
Besides, the amount of new movies you get on there each month is actually decreasing so when I think about it, is it really worth 36 per month? Also, I think the service you get from Sky is getting worse anyway. Just ask anyone who has tried to phone Sky customer service with a fault or a complaint recently. Its not a pleasant experience and has been going that way for years and years with no sign of improving in my opinion!
