I wonder if anyone can tell me if Sky On Demand downloading usually takes a very long time? It seems to happen in real time.

It's all down to your broadband speed , needs to be at least 2mb, can also vary depending on provider

Unfortunately we are not cabled for Virgin. It seems, from your kind replies, that the superfast broadband (which is now available here) might be required. I will think about it.
