Hello everyone.Today i receieved software update on my tata sky HD +.....after rebooting i explore and found 2 changes:1. when i go to organiser then system settings i found a new option "IP Diagnostics" i selected the option and it shows ip configuration details as no ethernet cable is connected to HD box hence shows ip connection failed.... i plugged RJ45 Lan cable to my router with HD Box and wow its great to see ip address assigned to HD Box and internet is up....now the question comes what is the purpose of internet on HD box i explore and found 1. when i select showcase then video on demand and wow i can see Free Movies options with a snapshot of movie images and when i click on free movies i can see lots of movies listing which i can select and download on my HD BOX and once downloaded i can see....woowwwwwwww2. also i can see Sony channel v channel star plus channel and surprise to see i can watch any episode which i miss. its just like recording is on tata sky server and you can select the serial which u wana see then it will download on HD BOX via your internet connection and u can see it,..guys if anyone has new to share please post it.....

I am not sure about Tata Sky's service, but just some input on topic.

When we connect 'any' broadband connection to STB, the STB establish a connection with backend server of provider (Tata Sky in this case) through broadband connection. The connection may be secure type with some encryption involved (which is generally hidden from customer).
If connection is successfully establish, we can see different data option provided by operator over broadband, like balance, any interactive service, games, and even videos. (I have used similar service in Sky UK).
