Ratings and Reviews
Watch downloaded content anywhere, and stream live content on up to two devices.
I love this app. On my ipad it is a portable pocket T.V. I take it to relatives and we can watch pretty much everything. I also use it when I am pootling and scootling around the house. The variety of programmes offered is so varied I would defy anyone not to find a preference. I can now also use it abroad. Well done sky.
The only minor downside is it once suddenly informed me that programmes were not available and to try again later. Sky tried to be helpful (their customer service is superb) but they suggested there was a global technical problem. The following day I found the same message and felt sky should have informed me that to delete the app and reinstall it via the app store would have solved the problem. I wasted hours to find this out by myself and to clear this error but it now works fine.
The other huge problem is Skys reliance on adverts and not only on this app. They are everywhere and their frequency and repetative nature spoils viewing hugely. They interrupt to quickly and frequently. On this app I turn the sound down and dont watch or listen to them. We as customers I feel deserve better as our fees, like advertisers, pay for a service whis is only partially fulfilled. Without this embellishment it woul be worth a five. I do not mind a few adverts but I dont want to share my viewing with their spoiling frequency.
A great app with a very varied and versatile choice of viewing options diminished by unnecessary frequent advert interruption.
As much as it is great to have access to programmes anywhere and at any time, the barrage of ads that must be endured for this service is majorly frustrating and disheartening. It makes u want to give up trying to watch. When u try to skip forward to a certain spot in a programme it is impossible without having to watch even more ads. You think u can watch a little something in a quick half hour to spare and it is next to impossible with ad interruptions. The other day I spent the whole spare half hr I had spare watching continual sets of ads as I tried to find my place in an episode, which needless to say I never got to watch. It’s ridiculous! Why is this necessary when Sky is already 5 times as costly as Netflix for the same type of service and there isn’t a single disruption by ads to any film or programme on Netflix and you can flick back and forth to any point in the film or programme that you like without a problem. At the very very least u could keep your ads to the beginning only on programmes, like you do with the movies, because it is extremely difficult to endure. It makes me lose hope and puts me right off the service.
