Sky Go App.....it's brilliant!!
English

My iPad 2 is making me lazier by the day.............I'm now watching England-India test match live without even getting out of my bed! I just wish it had better multitasking so I could surf the Internet while listening to the commentary in the background, or better still, a split screen to do 2 things at the same time.... Dance 4

Split screen would be very handy....

Thanks for the tip bigboss. I can hardly believe it. An app as good as this from sky, for FREE!

Haven't tried it yet, sounds good though!

Can you use Airplay to stream it to an Apple TV?

No you can't. I tried connecting my iPad 2 to my bedroom TV via HDMI cable, & got the message that Sky Go doesn't support this. I'm sure even AirPlay will not be supported.

RE: Sky Go App.....it's brilliant!!

My Dad has Sky and we have tried to set this up on my iPad2, we simply cannot get it working. For some reason sky go will not recognise that we have the Sky sports package.

All the help stuff tells me to go here go there and choose the "link sky ID to TV package". I go all round the houses and keep ending up on the manage device, settings, but I can never find that link instruction. When we log into SKY ID it tells us the package fine but Sky Go just won't have it. Occasionally it will play the content of Sky Sports 1 which is very odd, maybe it's a teaser as it then hangs after about 5 minutes and tells me I need to subscribe.

Did anyone else have these problems?

I had a similar problem with Sky Sports. Try again after 24 hours. If still no joy, delete the app & reinstall it. It took 24 hours after reinstalling Sky Go for it to recognise that I have the sports package.

Sir Boss, master of the iPad2, I shall give it a go (pardon the pun Smile ).

I have deleted and installed it about 10 times so far, registered and de-registered devices etc but perhaps not left it long enough to take effect.

RE: Sky Go App.....it's brilliant!!

This is a fantastic app.

Been running it on both my ipad and iphone.

Works a treat over my 3g connection on the iphone, was sitting in the pub here in Moscow watching the test match  Wink and used it all the time on my long train journey on holiday...

You need to go onto the Sky Go webpage and deregister one of your devices, there are limits on the number of times you can do this in a month though, once, I believe.
