I was wondering if anyone is able and or interested in recording one of the upcoming showings of Skyfall from the Syfy channel? There is a good possibility that the showings of this movie are open matte.

here are the details:

SYFYHD 65
Today 7pm CST
Tuesay 4pm CST

Skyfall does appear to have been broadcast open matte:

SyFy:

Certainly a little more image top and bottom.

Not sure how useful it is though, obviously it runs 180 minutes with commercials, it has a logo in the corner, and may have been edited for television.

Would it be better to try and get it from Epix or Amazon Prime?

Not sure about epix but Amazon prime has it for purchase only at $13.99. Also from what I’ve been told, other streaming sites like vudu, google and itunes are not open matte.

EDIT
Just checked and the movie is not on epix.

For the moment the Syfy capture will be serviceable at least until a rental is available on Amazon prime (then I can find out if their version is open matte). I can edit the commercials out too.

Amazon paid version is not OM, best bet of it coming to Amazon US in OM would be if Starz start to show it as part of their schedule as they regularly prefer to show OM sources if they are available and then it will appear on the Amazon Starz subscription.
