Re: Error Code 1949 while watching Sky Sports

I have some sympathy for Virgin. This has been a change that was imposed by Sky. Were Virgin ever invited to be part of the implementation project, specifically in the testing, which appears to have been poor.

This appears to be Sky imposing themselves on Virgin and Virgin's customers.

Perhaps OFCOM would be interested in a perceived abuse of their monopoly power to deliberately disadvantage those who access Sky's services via the Virgin platform.

Virgin have you considered using OFCOM as arbitrator????????????

Re: Error Code 1949 while watching Sky Sports

I understand that Sky are aware of the problem, but I cannot understand why someone from Virgin Media had not tested the Sky Sports App and been aware of this issue. It has been impossible for me to watch Sky Sports on my laptop for months now. This is unacceptable and very poor customer service. Two of my family and other friends have recently left VM and gone back to Sky. How many more have to leave before VM get their act together?

Re: Error Code 1949 while watching Sky Sports

virgin dont care about people using a PC to watch TV which is why no refund when it dosnt work. UNTIL they acknowledge that this is how many people watch tv these day then nothing will change.

the quality of the skygo and tv anywhere is poor when compared to free apps you can get and we pay for this rubbish.

Re: Error Code 1949 while watching Sky Sports

Hi All,

Seems to be fixed for me now - been watching the cricket for a couple of hours without any interruptions.

Hope it's good for everyone else...
