    Try TVCatchup - Never Miss A Show Again

    *it can't record
    *neither is it "sky" its freeview

    They have nothing to gain from being malicious as its free, they have gone to a lot of effort if they are trying to be dodgy. It works great for me anyway.

    We have a full Freeview recording system in place, through which we can allow access to our video library to all staff and students on site or off. It's just the licensing implications I was interested in.

    I can't upload the files because the email from Sky says I must not. But you can contact Sky Business Division for a copy.

    Sky Business - Sky.com is the link to the relevant Sky website you need for more info. I've been in touch and got some useful basic information.

    The SKY Schools Package does indeed start at 15.00 a month + 10.00 for SKY+HD, you can get things like SkySports thrown in but you have to send in a letter asking for a concession and prove that it will only be used for teaching purposes. Thats what we are trying to do at the moment.

    [*]Allows simultaneous viewing of live TV over the network[/LIST]

    Does anyone have any ideas of how we can do this? Since we need Discovery channels we will need Sky TV.[/QUOTE]

    Clickview Live is a new product that does this:

    ClickView - the digital video solution for schools

    At 2k+VAT, that's a serious investment! Quite a neat looking product, mind you. What's the hit on bandwidth like?

    Clickview Live

    They claim up to 500 simultaneous computers/viewers over a 1Gb LAN - uses Silverlight.
