I am thinking about setting my system up to use the sky on demand via download but have a couple of questions I hope someone can answer. My router is nowhere near my sky HD 1TB box. I have the option of buying the sky wireless box  but I have an apple airport express right next to the sky box which is wirelessly streaming music to my amp. Could I plug an Ethernet cable into this and the sky box and will that do the same job as the sky wireless box?

 

Also, I am interested in downloading films and box sets such as game of thrones and the wire. Will I be able to do this from sky on demand? What are peoples thoughts on this service?

RE: Sky on Demand

Not answering all your questions. 

You can buy a Sky Connector from the sky shop which makes you sky box wireless. I got mine for 9.99.

Yes to the airport express. That is what I do.

RE: Sky on Demand

I've just looked up Game Of Thrones on my Sky Demand service, and it is listed. There are 10 episodes from 2011, starting with Winter Is Coming, and ending with Fire And Blood.

Nothing for The Wire though, but that could change.
