Sky GO for ICS 4.0 Coming Soon (Again)

If you are Sky TV customer in the UK and were enjoying using the Sky GO application on your gingerbread android phone, then upgraded to ICS thinking that Sky had already taken the update into account, only to find that the GO service didn’t work on ICS! Sky did release an ICS compatible version by mistake it seems and some users were again able to use the service until Sky blocked access!  Hold tight the update should be out soon??

A post on the Sky help forums from an advisor states:

‘Hi ————,

Last week a Sky Go update for ICS was prematurely released.

We’ve had to recall this release as we are still experiencing bugs/stability issues within the app, and need to complete all necessary testing to make sure we continue to deliver our customers a high quality experience.

We realise that this will come as a disappointment to customers who’ve been looking forward to this update, and apologise for the error. We are working hard to resolve these issues, and will provide more details on launch dates as soon as possible.’

Sky GO – Orange Mobile TV Issues ICS 4.0.3

UPDATE: At least for Orange mobile TV, try switching your browser to Dolphin HD and access the site, you should find it will work.

If any of you have updated to ICS 4.0.3 and are currently using the Sky GO application or Sky Sports Mobile TV from Orange you will no doubt find yourselves unable to access either service.

 

I’m not entirely sure what the incompatabilities are but ICS hasn’t exactly been a secret and vendors should work faster to make sure that apps/services are up to date with the lates O/S, an update will be winging it’s way to you shortly no doubt…………………..
