Handsomedan: I had a torrid time of it at home in the weekend - trying to watch the A-League football...terrible picture, constant (every 20 min or so) drop-outs and having to decide which two of our possible 8 devices we want to allow access...the iMac (or any desktop device) should be excluded and the limitation be put only on the app, in my opinion.

I have my iPad Mini - my wife would love to have her iPad and then we have the iMac in the front room which serves as a pseudo second telly...


Sky...you are pushing me closer to cancelling my subscription over the stupid decisions you make.


No good on iPad as well as iMac?

Didn't want to log in via the iMac as I would then not be able to add another device for 30 days...leaving my wife out in the cold, so to speak...

iPad was just awful quality though.


Odd as I am on an iPad air at the moment, outside, quite a way from my modem, on wifi 2 bars, and it's very good. I find pixelation for a second or more, sometimes 3 or 4 seconds, then all good

I thnk (much like PLP), this could be a hit-and-miss affair...at least whilethey iron out the bugs.

I had a second crack at it on my iPad and found it to be very good SD quality, so quite different to what i experienced the other day.

Good news. I hope they add catchup as that adds 5 x the benefit for me at least.
