Unable to login on Sky Sports app

I get an error message when I try to use the Sky Sports app. After logging in, I get a message that says 'You will need the relevant subscription to watch this programme. Error code OVP_00005".

I have a Sky Sports subscription through Virgin Media but it doesn't appear to be recognised. 

Can anybody help?

 

I did speak with two people on the phone, the first of whom hung up after 25 minutes with no help whatsoever.

Re: Unable to login on Sky Sports app

Hi askinner, thanks for getting in touch. 

 

Sorry to hear you've encountered this problem when trying to login to the Sky Sports app. Just to confirm, are you able to use the same login details to sign in to your VM online account (virg.in/myVM) successfully?

Re: Unable to login on Sky Sports app

Hi, yeah I can login to virgin with the same details I login to sky with. It just says I don't have the subscription, but I do. Any idea how I can sort the problem?

Re: Unable to login on Sky Sports app

Yeah tried that one as well. No luck. Looks like I may just have to cancel the lot

Re: Unable to login on Sky Sports app

Hi @askinner,

I am really sorry to hear you've been having this issue. Is it ongoing today?

If so, is it possible for you to try this on a different device to see if things work any better at all for you?

Thanks,

Re: Unable to login on Sky Sports app

Hello askinner

I would like to take a look at this for you 

But first I need to pass security if that is okay 

If you can check the purple envelope top right of your screen that would be great 
Regards
