    Anyone found a way of watching skyplayer on Android yet? Really want to watchful the cricket at work this summer but the server can't cope with streaming at work.

    Any ideas as I don't think silverlight will work on the desire

    I work for Sky, albeit in a rather lowly part time manner (I'm a full time student) we have the means to make suggestions to the business etc and whilst I'd hope this is something Sky would have thought of previously I did make the suggestion to release official Android apps.

    There is an unofficial sky+ app, but it's paid. I bought it and it works rather well. The only down side is that it doesn't store your username and password, so you always have to log in when making a recording. Also as it's paid, if an official app is ever released it'd be money down the drain. I think it's called Sky Remote Record or something similar.

    Thats disappointing to hear guys.

    On Sky Remote Record, I took a look at the market page but only refers to recording ota. What I'm really looking for is a beeb player for sky, so I can watch live tv at work.

    If you sky guys could keep suggesting I plan on emailing sky about an official Android app. It frustrates me that bit companies are still so far mainly ignoring Android despite the massive grow in market share over the last year.

    Fingers crossed.

    The other albeit expensive option is to get a Slingbox assuming you have always-on internet, any buy the slingplayer app for 20 quid.

    I already have the Slingbox, once the Desire can store its apps on the SD card when Froyo comes out I may well spend the cash to try it out.

    Hi sky guys n gals,
    Anything further on sky player/mobile for android?
    We panicked last night when the snow caused sat signal to go down and ended up watching the ashes on skyplayer on the computer. Would be good to be able to do so on phone at tonight's compulsory family bore :eek:

    The only one I'm aware of is the remote record app from Sky. Which is superb by the way.
    You can find in the market place.
