Re: unable to install sky sports app on android

Hi @mandy473 

Providing you are in the UK and not using a VPN which appears to be from another country, then there should be no issues installing the Sky Sports app through Google Play on any Android device version 5.0 or above, unless you are trying to install the app on a kindle device.

Re: unable to install sky sports app on android

Hi mandy473, 

Thanks for coming back to us on this. 

We're sorry to hear this is still an issue for you. When trying to download the app to your device, what error message are you getting? 

As per newapollo: Is the Ventura location set up as UK, also is the Google Play app set up as location UK?

Pop back and let us know. 

Thanks,

Re: unable to install sky sports app on android

Hi mandy473,

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community!

Sorry to see you're having issues with this device installing the Sky Sports app.

As it is Sky's App it may be a case of the device not being compatible with the application I'm afraid.

Has any other devices been able to install the app?

Cheers,

Kain
