You should be able to log into www.skygo.co.nz with your account details, and watch online without needing to use an app. You may need to play with flash settings, if you use Chrome. The picture is scaleable to full screen.

 

 

Help is at https://skytv.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2445

 

 

As far as I know, this doesn't count as one of your three MySky devices.

I finally got it working, but only with the Chrome browser. Anything else I try (Opera, Vivaldi, Slimjet) causes problems. Either all these other browsers have issues or this is just another example of Sky technical backwardness.

I could live with that, but the media player Sky uses won't go full screen. All I get is a tiny window in the centre. If I switch to full screen, I just get the same tiny window on one side. I don't know what kind of media player Sky uses, since it provides no information or links, but I have also had this with other sites that use JW Player. 

 

Does anyone know how to fix this for a Windows browser? I am not trying to use an app, just a desktop browser in another room.

 

 

 

 

this annoys me as well, I had to use Chrome which works in full screen, which annoys me more!

If you get varying results in different browsers doesnt that point to the browsers? If they all operated on the same functional basis and standards, they should do the same on all websites, and differentiate themselves look and feel , and features? At work we have systems that wont work on IE or dont work well on IE so FF is our standard browser. Same thing.

I use Chrome for SkyGo also (FF user normally), but I don't mind since I can then cast it to the TV and make full screen.

The thing I find annoying about this is that Chrome is the only browser of the ones I have tried that seems to work correctly with every site, but it is my least favourite by far in terms of features and usability. Either I have to have four different browsers for different sites, or I am stuck with Chrome. If other browsers (Opera, Vivaldi, etc.) can use the Chrome engine, why can't they stream the same sites correctly?
