Fix the video option!
I bought this application because I use the satellite, home phone service and broadband. It was free at the time through the UK app Store, but when Apple figured out I was using the American App Store it didn't work anymore. I found it on the American app store, bought it, and has worked just fine this whole time. I am blind and I like the interface as it is friendly to the voice over software on the iPhones, iPads, and iPods that I use. The video feature has now stopped working, and hasn't worked for a while, I like to use it to show my family so that they can explain to me what's going on in the video. Please fix this as soon as possible! You're now giving the app away free to international customers as it says in your description. I paid for mine! Thank you.
I am so angry with Sky News!
I bought this app for one reason ... the "live" app. I considered Sky to have a wonderful news program. I watched it first thing in the morning and at night. Now the "live" button has been removed. Sky should strongly consider putting it back. It is unfair to give us something with the app and then take it away. That is a bait and switch. Please bring back our"live" t.v. button, Sky News. It is the best newscast I watch all day.
Videos won't play
I've have several versions of this app for more that a year now and I've never been able to figure out why the videos won't play. Also, there is no settings menu or issue reporting within the app. Please fix. There are some things the American news agencies just don't report on that I like to read about and watch.
