Depends buy I am not sure on what, I did get it to work once, in the early days of iSky on an HTC Desire, but have not managed it on my S2 since. I havent tried all the different browsers though to be honest.

Works fine on SGSII, SGSIII, and Nexus Prime

One loaded, in settings choose "Display Desktop Site"

And it'll load :)

Sorry should have mentioend, just the stock Android browsers, all on ICS

Nothing fancy, although I know Chrome definitely won't work due to the no flash. Haven't tried SkyFire, or Dolphin, since I haven't loaded them after I wiped my phone!

Is pretty slow on 2Degrees, but seems to work fine on wireless

Yes, both run well, just tested TVNZ On Demand at 1500k, works very well!

Although my battery did drop about 5% over testing iSky, TVNZ, and TV3

Trying to get isky to work on my S3 but it will not play, on live channels it comes up with content not available and trying to watch catch up content it plays 4 seconds of the 5 second into and then stops before startign to play actual video. Tried Dophin also and no luck either. Have tried changing settings to desktop also and still no luck.

Any ideas ?

Sweet! Thank you for this!! i was trying to get this working on the weekend (galaxy s3) and couldn't get it to work.. The trick is definitely the "desktop view" i would get sound and no picture, just massive playback buttons allover where the video should have been. Desktop view solved this.. I can now get my league fix when im out and about, brilliant!

shanep10: Looking at buying an android phone and am hoping I will be able to use it to watch isky. Has anyone tried this ?


It used to work on my HTC Magic 32b, 3 years ago, but as soon as 'someone'  (Sky?) found out it worked.......it stopped working. 

Maybe it was just bad luck.....but it was working fine for over a week...and then I made some noise about it working fine...and the next day it stopped working. 

Maybe just coincidence.....

Those old posts might still be here on GZ somewhere.

I use to run isky no probs on my acer tablet which i sold and got the S3. Tried again today an no luck again. I can watch tvnz ondemand but tv3 will only play the advert before the program and then comes up with an error. Isky isn't working but espn3 does.
