Awful... more buggy than any player available


This was a great player, but since they changed the layout of it it has become unstable to the point that it's unbearable. The layout is not as intuitive as it used to be, so it's a change made to keep some suit in their highly paid job. Every time you pause play and your iPad switches off and you then turn it back on when you're part way through a show or movie, it refreshes the whole app and forces you to the home screen FRUSTRATING! On top of that, even if you don't stop what you're watching, the ads when they play just lock on the last one (invariably a Sky TV ad), so you have to close what you watching and then cycle through all the ads again in the hope that it might not lock on the last ad again! I've watched over 2 minutes of adverts many, many times now just so I can continue watching the last part of Tin Star, S1E5. I reckon it'd easier to watch it on a pirate website than this!



We are charged ridiculous money for a service but we don’t mind paying if the service standard is outstanding. My husband and I use sky go because in theory it works for us but the reality is the app is utter rubbish!!! It takes me forever to watch anything as the programs crash and go back to the start every time the adverts appear. Not everything can be downloaded and even then sometimes even when they are it won’t resume where I left off. I really feel that in these days of wonderful technology if you can’t get an app to work properly you should be offering a refund to all customers on here experiencing the same problem. They obviously are hence the reason a massive company like yours has an app with such low ratings! Are you not ashamed? Apparently not as this is still not resolved! !!!! The app is not Secondary to some of us it is the reason we use the service. Treat this app as part of your service not an after thought.
