Ratings and Reviews
Sky go is very good for all ages! It’s brill when we head of somewhere that takes quite a bit of time and then we would just turn on sky go and watch it on our way. If you do want to watch on the way some where, with 4g or 3G it does mean you have to let them see your location but that’s only when your on the app and then I just turn it of straight after, and also it doesn’t matter because you’ll be moving in the car anyway if you did use 4g or 3G! Finally you could use it when your on holiday and the tv doesn’t have what you want, sky go also lets you continue from what you were in the middle of watching and I give this a five star because of all this and that it has adult programs as well the only thing is you have to have a sky tv!
Sky go is great!!!!!!!!!!🤪
I love this app. On my ipad it is a portable pocket T.V. I take it to relatives and we can watch pretty much everything. I also use it when I am pootling and scootling around the house. The variety of programmes offered is so varied I would defy anyone not to find a preference. I can now also use it abroad. Well done sky.
The only minor downside is it once suddenly informed me that programmes were not available and to try again later. Sky tried to be helpful (their customer service is superb) but they suggested there was a global technical problem. The following day I found the same message and felt sky should have informed me that to delete the app and reinstall it via the app store would have solved the problem. I wasted hours to find this out by myself and to clear this error but it now works fine.
The other huge problem is Skys reliance on adverts and not only on this app. They are everywhere and their frequency and repetative nature spoils viewing hugely. They interrupt to quickly and frequently. On this app I turn the sound down and dont watch or listen to them. We as customers I feel deserve better as our fees, like advertisers, pay for a service which is only partially fulfilled. Without this embellishment it woul be worth a five. I do not mind a few adverts but I dont want to share my viewing with their spoiling frequency.
A great app with a very varied and versatile choice of viewing options diminished by unnecessary frequent advert interruption.
Expensive, minimal content and with plenty of ads
to be honest, I’m about to cancel my entire subscription to Sky after over 20 years. the cost is ridiculous, you pay yet still have to watch ads and idents; the newest movies are extra and as expensive as actually going to the cinema; the back catalogue of previous series for current offerings is laughable and sporadic (eg modern family, GOT, etc - really Sky? with the amount it costs to watch your service and over £12 billion in revenues yet you can’t afford continued licensing rights??); they curate when you watch shows that don’t fit their political agenda (John Oliver, Trevor Noah’s Daily Show - when they’re critical of anything conservative the shows suddenly disappear from the schedule or play at weird times); the new movies and sports coverage is truly awfu and covers the bare minimum, new releases/sports events cost extral; you can’t even cast this pathetic app properly to standard devices - oh, and lastly their spotty and slow broadband throttles any content not Sky-sanctioned, including other media and newspaper sites. I’m hoping things improve under Comcast, but their customers speak of them just as poorly. Do yourself a favour and find what you want to watch elsewhere - it’s not hard and it’ll save you a fortune.
