There is an awful lot of hype about rapid germinating grass seed.......a lot of baloney! In my experience there is very little if any difference from "ordinary" grass seed.
if we get a mild spell Sonny grass seed may well germinate. Another factor in poor germination is dry weather. Needs moisture to germinate. However, as Fairy said, too much watering will simply make the ground colder and seed rot. So lay off the watering now.
All is not lost.....I have sown grass seed in winter and it has germinated well. Cover with cheap thin polythene after a light overseeding.
The alternative is to wait until spring now but give the polythene a try
