Re: Sky Sports app on Chromebook.

The Sky Sports app used to use Silverlight which is no longer supported by modern browsers as all of them already transitioned to HTML5.

Silverlight development framework is currently only supported on Internet Explorer 11, although I don't think it can be downloaded on Chromebooks.

I haven't got a Chromebook so can't test it but the following Chrome extension might work internet explorer tab for chromebook 

Please try that and update the thread to say whether or not it works as that would help other Chromebook users.

So, you can't remember and I (along with many other Chromebook users) know it did work. Maybe we could move on from that point.


I'm not disputing it's worked. But if it's not listed as a supported device, then it's been a technical error in your favour that's now been amended to align to the published supported devices

Here's the supported device list from Sky's page in 2019 which pretty much matches the current list (excluding any minimum OS and browser versions) https://web.archive.org/web/20190522172546/http://partner.help.sky.com/

Sky ditched Silverlight a while back for the web, but they moved to the desktop player which is Windows and macOS specific, not to HTML5.
