File needed to donload Sky movies
It is used for "Digital Delivery System", used by such programs as "Sky Anytime" and "4oD". If KService.exe is removed, these programs will not function  See also: Link WDUK

File used by sky and 4OD for downloading shows remains open after shuting down the program using it so if not downloading on either service rember to manually close this process. Rameares
I installed Channel4 On Demand ( 4OD) the other dat and this also seems to be used by it. Max
it is a p2p program used by sky, 4od, and BBCiplayer, however, it is troublesome to remove, to say the least, and it continues to use your bandwidth even after you close the program. dan
Also used for other secure file sharing services like 4OD, removing the pprgram does not remove the Kontiki elements, Kservice.exe being one of them.
KService is used by the 4OD (4 On Demand) Application Jon
it is required for BBC iPlayer video software Mike
Part of BBC iPlayer
Provides Peer to Peer service for many on demand TV services. LT

BBC iPlayer and other TV downloads Can stop this service if you are not using the TV download program
If you go on Channel 4 On Demand they give you the instructions for fitting a Kservice error. kaite
It cannot harm your computer, I mean it's BBC Iplayer! Anyway, I've scanned it and appears to be harmless. Daviga404.co.uk
It is a peer-to-peer service used to access Iplayer, 40D, etc. on port 80, can't be used with Apache Dan
I was wondering why my bb limit was using so quickly, turned out to be down to kservice. But I found that this tv on demand moniter worked a treat. you can dl at the link below. hope this helps.  See also: Link John Barrett
it is used for p2p streaming and downloading - fouls everything up if you do not want it to run open task manager click on processes - locate Kservice.exe and click on end process this shuts it up until u use a service that requires it iplayer or 4oD - no problem then derek hirons
Demands 100% of CPU for 6.5 minutes when booting my PC. It may be related to kdxhostwindow. Possibly invoked by Skype. Bulphrog
Very difficult to disable/remove -is somehow protected. Steve [not a geek]
This prog is also needed for YouTube downloader. If your not downloading digital (Video) files, It does not need to be running and can be disabled in taskMgr. G-Day Mate Professor Falken
