Sky Sports Device Limit reached

Tuning in

Just tried to access the Sky Sports app via Virginmedia account on Amazon fire and mobile but got the "Sky Sports Device Limit reached", checked on PC but do not have the issue as goes through the account and then having to use the desktop player.

I tried deleting the devices from the device management and even tried my mobile which was still got access but this came up with the error.

I believe the app was recently updated which kicked every device signed in out, so not sure whether it is having a funny 5 minutes?

Even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, weird thing was that despite this and the device already being on the list it still came up with the error.

Is there anyway to reset the devices and then I will try it again?

Managed to resolve it, I think it was due to it moving from March to April.

If this was to happen again but in middle of month what is the best way to resolve?
