Sky Sports live streaming

Hi all.

The Sky Sports app keeps crashing on my Android Tab whenever I try to live stream any channels. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times but it still won't work. Any thoughts on this? 

As an aside, I've contacted Sky direct who haven't offered any help other than to say that they are removing Sky Sports Mobile TV from next month. Are VM aware of this and do they have plans to provide an alternative?

Thanks 

TB

Re: Sky Sports live streaming

The Sky Sports app & Sky Sports Mobile TV app are totally separate entities (See below).

Only the mobile TV app is closing. Just tested & no streaming issues with the channels on iOS.

That's what I thought - I've said that to the Sky guys and asked if they are removing the live TV option from the Sky Sports app as well.

Re: Sky Sports live streaming

Even if they do remove the app, as they did with the Sky Cinema app, the channels will simply be moved onto TV Go. I wish they would, as then at least everything would be in one place.
