As the title says, it's gone active. We're watching a kids show right now over my BT Infinity connection and the program buffered for all of 5 seconds before we could start viewing.

Many thanks for spotting this. Just signed up - ignored the statement on the My Sky web pages that said I needed a sky broadband account - and Anytime+ was almost instantly available.
Woo-hoo! It only bloody works!

Oh yeeeeah, look at that...
No signature worth mentioning...
Strange, I spoke to Sky this morning and all they could say was it was likely to be this month or next.
When I had a look the other day it stopped me processing it as I didn't have Sky broadband, doesn't do that today obviously. Haven't activated it yet as I have Sky Go on 360 currently and I don't use it that much.
I completed the order on the website about 30 minutes ago, but it's not working yet on my sky box. Does it take a while to start working?
Took no more than about 2 minutes for me last night, you should get two emails to the registered address?
Stupid question; you've plugged an ethernet cable in to your Sky+ box haven't you?
yes ethernet cable plugged in ,finds my network ok but say FAIL on network service connection. I use a business ISP called Star, might be something to do with that? Yes I got the 2 emails. Does the router need certain settings?
On and off again?
working now, turned off the box, then router and modem for 5 minutes, now working fine.
Thank you. I was suffering the same "network fail" problem and couldn't find a solution.
Turning everything off and then back on again cured it. It is all up and running now.

On a slightly different topic, I'm currently looking at changing broadband ISP and was wondering what sort of broadband speeds I'll need to use the Sky Anytime + service without suffering from any buffering / judder?
The box buffers before you can play so you shouldn't suffer any juddering or buffering whilst watching.
Thanks Lee. However, I'm assuming you must have a certain speed to make sure that you don't have to wait for more than a few seconds before the box starts playing your stream?
I don't mind paying for a premium service but I can get O2 broadband upto 20MB for approx £2.08 per month (as I've been an O2 mobile customer for over 2 years). I'm wondering if that will be fast enough or whether I need to bite the bullet and pay for BT or Virgin Media superfast broadband.
