Customer Reviews

Half decent app but picture quality needs improving.

This is a half decent app but the picture quality compared to the Sky Go app is poor. The picture quality on the Sky Go app is near perfect (1080i) while on this app it's not as pin-sharp and takes longer to reach its quality (720p). As someone who spends a lot of money to access the sports channels and aforementioned apps I expect a better quality picture to view on my tablet. Once picture quality is improved I will give 5 stars.

App is excellent, yet videos show for 30 seconds then the app crashes

I'm a daily user of this app and all in all it's an excellent app, but for sometime now (12 months approx) when you watch a video it will show you the first 10 to 30 seconds and then crashes. Until this issue is fix I have to give this app 3 star, if the issue was fix definitely a 5 star.

£4.99 p/m subscription to a sports app.......are you kidding!!! Sky have made it nigh on impossible to view their content. Pay for a sports app, Sky go through Xbox live is now a chargeable service. You can only watch sky go on 2 devices and can only change one of them once a month, if you want more devices guess what?? That's right, you have to pay, this is on top of their exorbitant subscription fees for satellite tv. The sooner BT consign them to the past the better.
