Re: Sky Sports on iPad video Unavailable

Hi @Lundhill74

Welcome to our Community Help Forum 🙂

Thanks for providing the details on your Sky Sports app issue, I'm sorry it's not working on your iPad at the moment.

Have you made sure that your iPad's software is currently up to date?

Are you using a VPN? Does disabling the VPN make a difference?
Can you try resetting the settings on your iPad and let us know if this gets the app working again 🙂

Kind regards,

Serena

Re: Sky Sports on iPad video Unavailable

I have been having the same problem. It used to work ok on this iPad. My older iPad is still ok as is my phone when watching SkySports. I am just downloading very latest iPadOS15.4.1 and will try and remove the Norton VPN which always seems to be on.

Re: Sky Sports on iPad video Unavailable

Hi @PlumR14 

The solution below is from fellow VIP @nodrogd 

If you have Norton 360 with VPN running on an iPad it will cause the dreaded “video unavailable” message on the Sky Sports app live streams.

Despite the Norton app stating that VPN is not “active” on a secure connection, it will still stop the live streaming on Sky Sports working. Indeed even opening the Norton app & switching auto VPN off has no effect. What you have to do is turn off browsing protection completely in the app. This completely disconnects the VPN, the icon disappears from the top right of the screen & the streams start working again.

Re: Sky Sports on iPad video Unavailable

Still no joy. iPadOS15.4.1 loaded ok. Norton VPN status changed to manual selection. Still unable to watch Sky Sports. I have relevant subscription for Sky Sports through Virgin Media.

Re: Sky Sports on iPad video Unavailable

Thanks. There are three options on my Norton. Wi-Fi Security, Device Security, Internet Security. VPN is shown as OFF. I do not understand why this has happened on this device. It used to work fine.
