    How long is the 700th edition of Sky at Night supposed to be? The streamed version is an hour - but won't play on my slow connection. But the download says it is only 40 minutes...

    Hi number774,

    I can confirm that the streamed and downloadable versions of this programme are an hour long.

    The duration is incorrect in the programme information and i'm having this updated.

    Thanks

    If you are using a Windows machine consider using the Windows portable downloads, although they are not intended for computers and are low quality they are less than 1/2 the size of iPlayer downloads so can be cheaper &/or faster to download.

    see
    "Can I download programmes to Windows Media Player instead of BBC iPlayer Desktop? " - iplayerhelp.external...
    The BBC does mention problems, but I think this faq is just there to dissuade us from sending off contact forms, until it is too late to fix
