Just checked.  They are still using flash and knowing skytv will probably not even be aware of the 2020 eol.

I've been getting that when in Chrome recently. Have to tell it to load those scripts for it to work.

Slightly off topic question, but does Fanpass use the same streaming software and server etc as Sky Go?  Sky Go sometimes just doesn't work for me and the quality changes all the time.  Let me know if I should post this in a separate thread

I don't think so. Fan Pass allows for Chromecast support, and works on a variety of devices (e.g. Smart TVs) that Sky Go doesn't. The fan pass app allows you to control the bit rate, while the Sky Go app doesn't.

Nope.  SkyGo is in house.  FanPass is a NeuLion product.  

 

Is the difference in quality all on the Livestreamed channels.  Or is in for the OnDemand content?  Sky's bitrates are different depending on the content.
