I can watch iSky quite happily on my laptop but on the Galaxy Tab it just does not seem to work.  The sound is going but the large buttons just sit in the middle of the screen.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for the suggestions.  I will have a go with the browsers you have suggested tomorrow and report back.

Yep, stock browser doesn't work on my S2 but opera worked fine, also, it doesn't seem to like adsl much either.

Right sorry about my delay but I have been away plus the Tab is running a bit freaky since it decided to update itself.

I have tested the five suggested browsers:

xScope Browser = did not work
Miren Browser = could not find this one
Opera Mini = did not work
Dolphin Browser HD = IT WORKS !!!!  SmileSmileSmile
Boat Browser = did not work

Thanks

Hi

I have been battling with this problem for a couple of days, for me the only browser that worked was very unstable. Then a breakthrough!

Most (not quite all) of the browsers available from google play have a setting burried in their advanced options called "user access", "u/a" or similar. Most default to "android", but you can chage it to "desktop" (some call it slightly different), so far all of the browsers with this setting have worked for me on a galaxy tab 10.1 3G/wifi 32gb - P7500.

I hope this is of help to someone! Any thoughts on whats the best browser to use?

Yes changing that setting from Android to Desktop also worked for me. Can't seem to find that setting in the stock browser but we use the Dolphin Browser and it seems bulletproof for ISKY.

Thanks

I have only used Dolphin HD.  Works ok.  I have never used it on PC so can't compare.
I have had problems getting it to start, and if I go out of the broser to another app I have problems starting it up again.  But once going it is good as gold.
I read somewhere ages ago that the best web experience on a 10" tablet was using "desktop" rather than mobile mode.

I was able to watch isky on my Galaxy Tab 2 yesterday by clicking on the top right and ticking the box that said "request desktop site" and it worked perfectly without having to download anotehr browser.
Unfortunately today when I try that it just says "the selected item is not currently available". That's bollocks because it works perfectly on my desktop computer.
Any suggestions why suddenly I can't see it on my tab?
