I am really annoyed. I can't get onto the skygo website, the sky website tvguide and website is so slow it's unusable. AGAIN. All I want to do is watch the 7's womens as they challenge for Gold. 

 

They have had enough time to get this sorted! It's been a problem enough times, doesn't seem like they intend to fix it.

Proxy Error

 

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
The proxy server could not handle the request GET /default.aspx.

 

Reason: Error reading from remote server

 

 

 

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

 

 


Banana?

Yuck.

 

Luckily here at work we are on an Australian WAN so I got to watch it from 7's website.

It was on prime too, slightly delayed.  I ended up watching there instead of skygo.

Working flawlessly for me at the moment. Is it working for you now that the game is over?

It has never been designed to work at maximum capacity. 

 

 

 

So, do not rely on it for the big events. 

 

 

 

Sky should really have this disclaimer as it goes down on every large event.

I didn't have a problem with it at all. Streamed smoothly and connected with no issues.

SkyGo worked fine for me yesterday.  I can't comment on the website-guide as I use the app version, which works flawlessly.

My app worked fine. Too bad the ref have the gold to Australia. They probably would have still won, but not like that, it wasn't fair

In a knock out match or final, the video ref should be consulted with any doubt for tries or serious foul play (i.e. yellow/red card situation). 

 

In RWC and Super Rugby the tendency is for overuse of the video ref.  It's a bit frustrating to watch, but at least they get the decisions right.

I turned off sky go after listening to Keith Quinn being suprised the girls playing rugby were good.....and the other day, every player was referenced back to their male relatives.

 

That, and I get better quality off the BBC, were the reasons I chose not to use sky go.  Coverage looks really blocky on my 100mbit UFB connection.

The tendency for sevens is to let the game flow and not to use video ref. I was surprised there is a video ref.

But i agree if there is a video ref you got to use them if in doubt. Unfortunately the touch judge had no doubt. @£&#!

Is there any way for Sky to be held to account for these services continually faulting?
