Thank you Zoie, thats very helpful. Yes i can now access the sky sports app on my mobile.
Returning to the original issue of watching on a laptop. Does anyone know why the desktop player no longer works as it used to? I have seen a number of other people have posted the same issue about a black screen for a few seconds and then closing. Is there a way to resolve this? What is causing it? Thank you for your help though, at least i can now watch it on a mobile!
