Hi Nat_J Many thanks for your response. It's a Lenovo Yoga Book with Android version 6.0.1 Everything streams including BT Sport except for Sky Sports channels and it will not register in the Sky Cinema and Sports option (I only subscribe to Sports not movies). I use Virginmedia and sign on to Sky via the Virginmedia option. My Galaxy S7 Edge - Android version 7.0 - is registered and I am able to stream Sky Sports to it. Possibly the only thing I haven't tried up to now is to reset the TiVo V6 but am trying to avoid the hassle, and should it be necessary anyway. Kindest regards Bryan24
I also have a Lenovo Yoga Book Android with the same issue as you - Unfortunately, Sky Sports has stopped - when trying to stream Sky Sports channels.
This is not a problem I encounter on my Moto Z (android 7) phone.
I also don't have this problem on my Nexus 10 tablet.
From what I can see it looks as though this app (and also the TV Anywhere app) believes that the Lenovo Yoga Book is a phone and NOT a tablet as my Virgin Sky Sport devices show two Android phones and not one Android phone and one Andrioid tablet as expected.
The Yoga Book will also not auto-rotate either of these apps and they both always show in portrait mode - Is this the same for you?
Can anyone from Virgin comment on why the Lenovo Yoga Book is seen as a phone and not as a tablet.
That certainly seems to be the same in every respect except that the TV Anywhere app does have it registered as 'Lenovo Yoga Book'.
The comment that Sky Cinema & Sports (SC&S) app sees it as a phone is interesting because at the very beginning I did have two registrations showing as 'Android Phone' but I thought that my Galaxy S7 Edge had been registered twice, if that is in fact possible. I, therefore, deleted the second registration entry. Also, with the Lenovo I probably tried to register it in the SC&S registration window, not knowing that the method is to do it automatically by choosing a channel to stream. In any event, even if it was seen as a phone I still couldn't stream Sky Sports, getting that stopped message. It does stream on my S7. It also streamed on my Lenovo laptop until I removed in favour of the Yoga Book.
As you say the apps do not rotate, although all the channels I can stream do display in landscape mode.
It will be interesting to see what someone from Virgin has to say about the phone theory as this could be the root of the problem.
I did email to Sky Sports apps and this is the reply, which is probably what I expected.
For TV Anywhere It's all based on screen resolution and pixel density. If this lenovo device has a low count on either of these then it will default to phone and not tablet as the user experience to fit the tablet interface on it will be very poor. The Sky Sports app will probably be the same.
