Re: Can I watch sky sports on my virgin TV anywhere app on amazon fire

Hi swartz68, 

 

Thanks for your post and apologies to hear you're having difficulty using your Amazon Fire tablet for streaming with the Sky Sports app. 

 

Checking online, Sky are currently only supporting the Sky Cinema app on the tablet. 

 

When searching the Amazon Playstore are you able to find the Sky Sports apps? After looking in to this, it shouldn't be there however searching for Sky Cinema should bring an app up. 

 

Let me know.

 

Thanks,

Re: Can I watch sky sports on my virgin TV anywhere app on amazon fire

Hi. I couldn't find the sky sports app. I have sent the amazon fire tablet back. Will buy a different tablet but need to check this time if I can watch sky sports on my TV anywhere BEFORE I buy it. Was thinking of buying a Samsung galaxy tablet as it works fine on my Samsung phone but I don't know how to check first as I only want it to watch the football on while I am out on the go. Thanks.

Hi swartz68, 

 

Thanks for coming back to us on this Smiley Happy

 

As long as the tablet fits the specifications laid out by Sky here: Technical Requirements for the Sky Cinema and Sky Sports apps and website then there will be no issues Smiley Happy 

 

If you need any further advice, pop back and let me know. 

 

Thanks,

Hi swartz68,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

The Galaxy Tab A is a compatible device so you'll be able to use TV Anywhere and sky Sports app! Check out the Compatible Device List on the Sky website for more details.

 

All the best Smiley Very Happy

If you've got half an hour to spare, go to http://www.howtogeek.com/232726/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-your-amazon-fire-tablet/

You can install google play store then download Sky Sports app from there, then log in on the Virgin
