Awful App

This has to be without a doubt one of the worst apps out there.

People pay a fortune for Sky Sports and the service provided is substandard, especially considering the marketing drive of being able to watch Sky Sports "on the go."

Every football match I have tried to watch crashes or freezes, the network times out constantly or the network is too busy to stream to my device! SORT IT OUT!


The app in all fairness is absolute dump. Works for fifteen minutes then boots you out. The reason why it got 2 stars is due to me being a student and it's the only way i get to watch the footie.... When it decides to allow me. So in a way its a life saver.... But then it makes you want to smash your ipad against the wall and rock bottom your housemate.. ..Because the app is about as useful as arsenals back four!

Good little app

This app is pretty good for people who carnt afford sky sports like me like this app as I can watch all my favourite wwe shows every week live
