Permission issue A recent update asked for more permissions which I was happy to grant but then asks for access to the phone. I don't use Sky broadband so selected no at which point it then tells me that all permissions must be granted in order to use the app and closes the app. I now can't use the app at all. Sort it out Sky I thought you were a professional company.
Permissions needed by app Like previous poster said. Why do they need permission to make calls. I pay for sky and this is part of package. Another thing is the lag on feed. I know people who don't have sky getting more real time streaming than I do. Piss poor really. Considering binning you now sky, not that you'll be bothered.
Unstable and crashes. An okay app, but for a service pay a monthly premium for nowhere near perfect. Downloads often fail to play, and at one use in Nottingham, central England it insisted I was outside the UK so wouldn't work. Doesn't seem as many programmes available as through TV version of catch-up and box sets
Make and manage calls I don't think so Sky. I already agreed to the cached data lark, which is still invasive but if it helps with the app and a better targeted service for me then ok. Make and manage calls. No. I don't think so. Not even a service we use from you, Sky. Effectively, you're denying me the services we pay for, because I won't give you unnecessary access to my phone. MY phone. Very unhappy at your unprofessional approach and frankly, at the audacity. I am frustrated to high heaven, unfortunately this is a goodbye.
Registered devices bullshit We already pay through the teeth for sky and they still impose this overly restrictive registered devices policy for a crap app and a crap player. 9 times out of 10 I can find streams which are better quality. And free. BT Sport knows how to do it, far better.
Allow sky go to make and manage phone calls? This app i probably would have rated a 3 due to having a 50/50 chance of getting a clear picture/good signal. Until the latest update where it has demanded that i grant it permission to make and manage phone calls? Why do they need this? Im not going to allow this so it wont let me use the app anymore. This is awful.
Bug Fixes and stability improvements.
