Problems accessing Sky Go and NOW TV | 18 April 2014


Sky Go, NOW TV and Sky Movies apps are back up and running on iOS devices.  We are really sorry for any inconvenience caused by the service outage.  To fix the bug we have introduced an app update that is available through the App Store now.

At present we have a known issue with iPad 1 and other devices running IOS 5.  These devices will not be able to download the new version of the app, which includes the fix for the video playback error for all other IOS devices and OS versions.

We are working to resolve this in a future release.
