5 adverts before I even get to the programme, a good 5 minutes of ads for a service I pay ten times the cost of my Netflix subscription. This should be ad free to your paying customers. Same programme was available on Netflix so I stopped bothering with Sky Go at all. Even when you get through the ads it buffers non stop, rarely have the same issue streaming on other apps.

Good little app. Especially if you have Sky Go Extra. I can watch on my TV, phone, laptop and PS4 so I'm pretty much covered wherever I am. The only thing I would say is you should be able to stream to devices like Chromecast, etc.

New update makes it a lot harder to use, has removed content and worse than anything has flooded the shows with ads so many adverts it feels worse than watching TV it's really bad and very frustrating sky are using this app this way sky go is now a no go app such a shame. The previous version was better still with ads but not as many. Also the clicking sound is still there when playing content. Code issues?

Adverts, adverts, adverts! Why so many adverts. How can Sky charge so much for a subscription then need to show so many adverts. Before the latest update you used to get about 2 minutes of adverts before a programme, which was just about bearable, since the update there's adverts at the start and every break. On a 30 minute commute this morning i only managed to watch 16 minutes of the programme. On way home again started with 4 minutes of adverts then crashed, restarting got me 2 more minutes of adverts! Gave up and turned to Netflix
Isn't the world become a very dodgy place? What has sky tv to do with its customers pesonal phone Data! In that the latest update is phone access on sky go or no using the App! Can I get an explanation for that Please! It's out of place. Is sky planning on selling phone numbers to cold callers like some of the phone networks or what's new ?

When I get to watch anything, that's it, i can not then change channel as the menu doesn't work and i then have to close it until the next day or two. I don't usually write reviews, but this app is totally pointless. think its now time to join virgin, as i have never encountered issues as bad as this. What a waste of money

Really dislike the new update. I now have to download episodes before I can watch them? Why?? Before I could actually catch up on the episodes whenever I wanted but now I have to download it to the sky box, which defeats the purpose of me trying to watch it on my phone.. Cheers for that. The app wasn't the greatest before (ads and buffering) but now it's even worse because I can't watch the shows I want to on the go, so can you just put back to how it was...

i can no longer stream live TV over mobile data (4g/3g). i instead get an error message "your q box is streaming to maximum number of devices. i do not have sky q, and it is sky go, not sky q, so i should not be experiencing this major issue. please fix this issue as soon as possible.

This is a horrendous update, I don't know how it was allowed. Can't watch fully offline anymore, which means underground commute interrupted. So many adverts - I pay a tonne for the subscription, pay nearly a tenth of the price for Netflix/amazon prime for equally as great content without ads. And you wonder why people pirate. One of the worst app updates I've seen.

Well done. Again you have done an update that doesn't work! It had been working fine on my HTC M9 till the update. Constantly tells me I've no Wi-Fi connection when I have!!! Directs u to the sky help...that doesn't help at all. Try calling it 'Sky Don't care'. The app is now way to complicated. Just leave it alone, it was working just fine!!!!
Luther 1
Can't stream anything since the new update error code 3-25. I use this to watch live football when I'm out and about. What a waste of money! This is one of the companies that complains when people stream things from open sources fix your app and maybe they won't need to!!
