Yeah I've got Skybybroadband. You have to be a Sky Sports or Sky Movies subscriber but it's still good. I downloaded some films and some 3rd eye off soccer am (which is funny) and it's all been perfect quality. This is worth signing up for if you can.
Just remember that the movies you download are DRM protected and they don't work after a month or so. I plugged the computer into my DVD recorder that I use for recording off the telly and started recording onto a DVD+RW then started the film playing in Windows Media Player fullscreen. Then I'd rip the film off the rewritable disc and put it on DVD-R and it seemed OK. Then just got rid of the downloaded films that were on the computer, bingo! The downloads are WMV format so they're compressed - which means the quality isn't quite as good as DVD or what they're broadcast at, but they're a good match. Most people don't notice the degrade in quality anyway so you should be alright.
I downloaded the software last night to my laptop. It behaved strangley afterwards, fan coming on a lot, that very rarely happens.
I checked the films on offer and must say I was a little disappointed.
This morning I received a security alert from my router of an attempted DOS attack at around 3am this morning (I shutdown at around 1am?). On checking the router logs today, this happened a few times in the hour after that. Is this to be expected when using p2p software as I have never used it before? Has anyone else had this? If the laptop continues to behave weird tonight I will probably bin the application.
