Hi @Bluefoxtv

A very warm welcome to the community forums. 

Sorry to hear you're having issues with access Sky Sports on your laptop. When does this error occur, when you try to view a program or when you are trying to log in? 

We'll try help best we can but we have no access to the Sky Sports app or website to diagnose issues.

Are you using Windows or Mac OS?

Have you recently added any software or updated the OS software?

If you have any screen recording software this may trigger programmes not to load. 

Here to help 🙂

Hi Carly

I am using Windows 11,  which I updated a few months ago.  The error occurs in the desktop player when I am trying to few a programme.  I don't have any screen recording software.






Hi Carly

It is now working thanks,  after logging out of Zoom,  which I hadn't at first realised had the ability to record screen.

Thanks for your help
