Default UK only: Sky Go app

This is strictly a UK & Ireland thing.

The SkyGo app won't install at all from the Store. Technicians are working on a fix but at the moment you can't get it to work on the Note 3. I have had no indication as to when the problem will get fixed.

You can get the app from http://apps.sky.com/skygoandroid/skygo3.2.apk. It will install but it still won't actually run yet. When it does , you will need your Sky ID.

I really need to be able to get live stream Sky News on this thing.

I'm pleasantly surprised that Sky made it available to the Note 3 so quickly,it wasn't the case with the Note1/2

Fingers crossed that the Tech section sort out this issue asap.

Simon,you will love it on your Note 3

Not exactly "available" yet.

It's essential. It's the difference between having to take my laptop on an overnight trip and not.

Not the same but the Sky News app is pretty good. You can access bulletins with the latest headlines but not a live news feed. Better than nothing?

For me, it's looking a bit flaky BUT it is working at least partly. I'm guessing Sky is still working on it?

Edit: Picture takes a while to settle down each time but eventually does. (Just not as good as iPlayer - though still OK.)

And it REALLY sucks battery.

It's fine. No doubt in a few weeks it will be made "official" as it already is for other devices.

My main complaint with it so far is it consumes too much battery.

I've not seen the Sky Go app for myself. Just gives some crap about it not being available in China. But if it's streaming video, either using WiFi or 3G/4G, that's often quite heavy on power. Does the phone become noticeably warm when using the app?

The gold standard here is the BBC iPlayer and Sky Go is very noticeably worse than that at the moment both in terms of power consumption and poorer video quality.

I have a feeling Sky Go is still very much in beta on the Note 3.
