Sky on Demand Includes:   

BBC iplayer, ITV player, 4oD, on your Big Screen

This is a fantastic service, it costs very little if you already subscribe to Sky, and needs a bit of explaining, so please bear with me and read through to the end.

This also solves the problem of how to watch programmes from channels on which you have the “no satellite signal” message.

So for those who have lost their BBC, ITV, Freesat channels since the Astra 2E switch over  happed, this will allow you to watch all of your favourite programmes on catch up.

There are two options here; both are to watch on your big screen TV with a normal remote control in your hand.

Everything comes from the original broadcasters’ source, i.e. no second hand retransmission, in poor quality via dubious web sites/servers.

As always we only supply the same original equipment you would use if you were in the UK but we have an additional service which makes it all work here in Spain.

Sky on Demand requires a Sky subscription, a Sky+ HD box and a dish with a satellite signal on some Sky channels, as long as you can access the on screen TV guide it will work perfectly.

You may already have this, but If not we can arrange it for you. You also require broadband internet, although the speed of your internet connection is not too important for this option.

It is very important to understand that the On Demand service downloads the programmes you choose to your planner via the internet and stores them on the inbuilt hard drive for you to view at your leisure.

This means that even if you have “no satellite signal” on the original channel via the satellite i.e. Sky Movies, BBC, ITV, Freesat, etc. it doesn’t matter, as long as you have the Sky “TV Guide” and the internet you can watch almost anything which is in your package via on demand.

 A quick example of what you can do: This morning it took me 15 minutes to peruse and select 6 programmes that we might fancy watching over the weekend, when I looked an hour or so later they were all available to watch from the planner.


This is not “streaming” - all other internet TV services depend on streaming which takes some time to buffer then allows you to start watching. The problem with streaming is that it can’t give you the same quality and it also tends to stop at high internet usage times. Not so with Sky on Demand as irrespective of the internet speed, the programmes will download and save on your box, so when you choose to watch you always get the original perfect quality.


I want to watch it now!  - Yes you can:

Normally about 30 seconds to a 1 minute after you select your chosen programme it will appear as “available” and you can watch it while it is still downloading. (This one does depend on your internet speed)

This really is watching what you want when you want. The quality is fantastic both in SD and HD.


What you get:

Free i.e. as part of your existing Sky package:

UK TV Router:

The UK TV Router also gives you a load of other advantages:

  • Allows you to connect up to 4 devices simultaneously and watch live or catch-up TV on your PC, laptop, ipad, tablet, smart phone etc.
  • Secure internet access where your own I.P. address and location will not be available to snoopers on the net.
  • At UK TV Router we have our own dedicated UK servers. This allows us to control the number of end users assigned to each server, thus guaranteeing more than sufficient bandwidth for each user even during peak viewing times.


We have now had our systems on test for a nearly a year and had zero failures to watch the TV when we want.
