What's New in Version 5.1.2
Welcome to Sky+ 5.1.2
This update includes some minor bug fixes and improvements to make your Sky+ even better.
Having trouble connecting to your Sky+HD box? Visit bit.ly/skyplusapphelp for tips and tricks to get Sky+ working with your set up and BT Home Hub routers.
Sky apps are really frustrating but...
Have had troubles on and off since the dawn of time with Sky apps. Each update fixes one thing and bugs others.
The positive rating is for the fact that when it works it is truly brilliant. In conjunction with Sky Go awesome. Would be nice to have a premium customer app that combines both into 1??
If only Sky had some competition the world would be a better place, but they don't, so at least they are investing in providing a continually improving service for their customers.
And lastly for anyone saying it is not integrated my sky+ app turns on my TV and the sky box, I can switch between boxes easily with multi room. My Denon app turns on my surround sound and adjusts my volume, so happy days.
If anything doesn't work turn it off and on (phone/iPad) and most importantly your Sky box too and try again! Reinstalling the app won't help. Sky's help section is hopeless. The first thing it should say in every help section is "turn everything off (including your Sky box) and the turn it on again!!!!! And why oh why is there no "delete all" button for deleted programmes. My 2TB box works so much better clean but I have to sit and press yellow button hundreds of times???!!!
Absolutely brilliant app
My Sky eye in my room isn't working so I can't change the channel which is very annoying. I downloaded this app last night to see what it can do, not realizing I can use it as a remote for my Sky! When I realized this, it finally allowed me to use my iPhone as a remote! I was so happy as I can finally watch TV in bed again! I love the gestures, absolutely brilliant! Thank you Sky! Added bonus it automatically recognizes your Sky box, saves you putting your details in, if you had forgotten them (like me). Not sure why it's getting 1*
Use this to watch sky via an AV sender as second sky multi room boxes do not record etc. This is a great app can be glitchy but think that's my wi fi rather than the app. Only other things that would be great to have would be option to select how many minutes into a programme you start viewing. Also if this could do volume control as well it would be perfect but don't know if that would be too complicated as that's the TV not Sky? Excellent for recording stuff when you are out and forgot to set it up.
