It may well be my my machine if no one else is experiencing it - although I'm surprised to hear this. No other programme/app seems to have this affect on my macbook, and it's happening even when the laptop is placed on a cold, granite work top so it's not a pillow/cushion burning it up.
The battery life decreases at a very rapid rate as well when using it; I've closed every other app running to see if it makes a difference but no luck. The battery decreases about 1% per minute on average when using the app. This is with as much battery preservation in place as I can manage, the screen brightness is turned right down etc.
Is there any way to go back to simply using the website or is the app now the only option available to Virgin Media customers watching Sky Sports on TV Anywhere?
It may be that the cooler fan on the MacBook has restrictedairflow. Normally this is a result of laying it on the bed to watch, the fan sucks up bits of fibre and over time the airflow is reduced and when working hard gets hot.....
