Advantages: skip adverts, pause tv, rewind and fast forward, recording
We recently got Sky plus and was so impressed, how did we live without it, it changes your life! Honest. We have recently had our first child and this could not have been installed at a better time for me. We used to be able to watch all kinds of trash telly when we wanted but now little legs is here we no longer have the free time, this is where Sky plus comes into its own.
With the ability to be able to pause, record, fast forward and rewind live tv the worlds your oyster. You have an upgraded box which offers this, an older plain box cannot be updated to add this function a new box will need to be installed so be wary of Sky charging you for this, they may not charge you if you extend your contract by 12 months.
It is perfect for not missing a minute of your favourite programme, ideal for watching programmes and pressing pause for a drink or toilet break and not having to rush through your three minutes which ads normally last for.
You can even specify where you wish the programme to start, for example I record the british touring cars which is about 5 hours long as it is various other races too, I can fast forward it to the next race by typing the numbers into the menu to enable me to skip a few hours instead of waiting for the programme to fast forward. The fast forward option can be done in four speeds, same with the rewind, two fairly fast and two of which are slower.
This does make watching tv a more pleasant experience just for being able to fast forward the adverts alone, also being able to pick up where you left off is great too.
Despite what some people think about sky if you can put this aside you really are going to benefit from using Sky plus. I recently looked at the top ten inventions in the last 50 years, sky plus was one of them.
You can now plan your life round the tv instead of planning the tv around your life.
Summary: Plan tv around your life not the other way round
