I use it every day on my Xperia So far I have had no problems with the app and am enjoying the box sets. The only downside is you can't save your favourite shows on a favourites list, you have to search every time either using the search feature or looking for the channel but hope that changes sometime in the near future.
Will they ever get this right? This app is supposed to let you download programs and watch them on the go. The majority of times I try to watch content on the go I get a message to restart the app. If I'm at home and have a wi-fi connection it works perfectly. So Sky's definition of 'on the go' includes having active wi-fi. What about planes, trains and automobiles! Sky are charging me for a service that they can't deliver.
Pros: #Lots of content. #Streaming is seamless. #Great video quality. #Interface looks smart. Cons: #When looking for a show in categories, the availability is limited. However, if you search manually for a show it's nearly always there. So unless you know to do this you would believe the show it isn't on SkyGo. #No function to manually or automatically save what you're watching, you have to search for the show everytime and remember which episode you were on. #Can only download content if you keep the app open the whole time. #Playback function is very limited. Literally only a scrub bar and play/pause. #No subtitle option. #No personalisation at all.
No way to personalise? The app is okay.. I wish there was a way of favouriting certain box sets and shows so they are accessible from the main page. The search function doesn't help here either because it lists the result by latest episode first. It would also be great if the app kept track of which episode you're on for the box sets. I'm also not a big fan of ads being played on a service I'm already paying for.
App doesn't work anymore As a sky customer I use to enjoy using this app, catching up on shows that I missed. Since a recent update the app no longer works and is pointless having. I tried buying into sky go extra so that I have the ability to download but this doesn't work either so will be cancelling and demanding à refund. PLEASE FIX SO THAT I CAN ENJOY SKY GO AGAIN!!!!
Doesn't support chromecast Tried to mirror my phone to a TV and chromecast isn't supported! So I have to watch programmes on my tiny phone screen while out and about sort it out sky! I pay for my subscription but hardly watch anythings due tow not being home alot! So would be better if you could make the app chromecast compatible.. then I will give 5*
