I have a sky account, and I can log into the sky Website (and iSky), but if I click on watch Live TV eg. Sky Sports 1 - it tells me I need a Live_Sports subscription. What is this? I take it that it's not a Sky Sports subscription, which I have.

I don't see anywhere to get this subscription (If I click More Info it takes me to the upgrade page, where it tells me I already have Sky Sport).

WTF is going on. Gotta say for a big company with a lot of resources it's a pretty Sh*t webpage.

Ignore that.

I just had to re-link my sky account to my skyID and away it went.

Not so sh*t. But I would have thought that since the website knew what channels my account had, and my decoder numbers that it was already done. Never mind. all good now.

atm it takes overnight to update your account detail with your online account, i think they had that issue reported already.

to watch live sport you need sport package+multi-room. :)

That's a  money grabbing  piece of S**T.  Makes iSky a complete waist of time for live events..   Only a monopoly could come up with this..

It is working - started working as soon as I re-linked my Sky login with my decoder numbers (as said above).

I do have MR and SS.

+1 its BULLSH..T! if you subscribe to sports then you should get live sports on isky too, I know its sort of getting multiroom for free but its only 1 or 2 channels! typical sky tho.

I got that lots during the trial, nothing available. I'm guessing they have maxed out on the number of streams?




You can never have enough Volvos!

Too tight to pay for more slots on the streaming servers perhaps?
