Sky Sports F1 App : Camera Option Greyed Out

So i have a sky go monthly account and have just signed in to the newly updated sky sports f1 app on my Ipad 1 expecting to be able to view the various camera views but the option is greyed out for some reason. the standings and twitter options are are both active.

 

Also, if i click "watch live" in the app i can see all the sky sports channels apart from Sky F1.

 

Why is this ? Anyone able to help ?

Hi decoysa, 

 

Certain features for F1™ covergage on the Sky Sports News for iPad app will only be available to Sky TV customers, if you are a Sky Go Monthly Ticket customer certain options will appear greyed out or disabled.

 

You will be able to watch Sky Sports F1™ through the Sky Go app with the Sky Go Monthly Ticket but not through the Sky Sports News for iPad app unless you are a Sky TV customer with the relevant subscriptions.

 

I hope this helps.

Yeah already worked this out, just another case of sky go customers getting screwed like the second class customers that we seem to be... £49 a month for limited channels, militant device registration rules and no cool features like racecontrol. Good to know sky cares about us..

Came here to ask the same thing... I have to use the Monthly Ticket option since my flat can't have a Sky dish, so it's really disappointing to find I won't get the camera control of normal Sky users despite paying the same.

Re: Sky Sports F1 App : Camera Option Greyed Out

During the Australian GP today I was unable to access most of the options. They had worked during Qualifying on the same device in the same room of the house.

I am a subscriber to Sky+HD.

Was there some problem with your system or should I look at mine?

Hi JohnCH,

 

Were you receiving any error messages when you tried to view these options on the app?

No, just a black screen where the image should have been.
