Are you able to use these features if you use a dongle pluged into your laptop or can you only access them from your phone?

It's only from a handset.

The resolution is so low it'd be no use trying to view it on a PC anyway!

As posted above - the resolution is so low taht even on a handset you have a hard time making out what's going on in a sporting contest, you can't read very large text on a news broadcast and often get long periods of pixelated crossover between scenes on a doco...

To attempt to watch on a screen larger than a small phone screen (and I mean SMALL) would be a waste of time.

Also, just to point out, Sky Mobile TV does not have the same content as the same Sky channel on TV. It's made specifically for mobiles and loops round and round....

Using it as an alternative to Freeview or Sky TV is not really possible.

I will subscribe to the service when they upgrade the video quality and stream real live TV (not just looped content).

When it first came out, CNN was streamed live but they took that away.
