Hi digitalman2008, 

 

Unfortunately the Sky Go App is not supported to be watched through a TV

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

[ Edited ]

I can connect my laptop to the TV and watch Sky Go, so why not my iPad?

 

Every iPad app I have can be mirrored to the TV, so why not Sky Go? It seems to have been deliberately constrained.

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

Any answer to this?  Will HDMI output be enabled in future?

 

Is it a technical issue, or simply a commercial decision to constrain the iPad in this way?

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

So you don't know the answer then...

 

HDMI output would need to have been deliberately disabled by Sky. Otherwise it would just work like every other app.

 

This isn't a feature they haven't got round to adding yet. Quite the opposite, they clearly spent time disabling it.

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

I wish I had read this thread before I spent £35 on the Apple iPad HD connector.

 

Well done SKY - there must be a lot of disgruntled Sky Subcriber / iPad owners who think this is crazy?

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

Add me to the list of disgruntled users. Don't understand why Sky have disabled this - you have to be a subscriber to use Sky Go so what's the problem.

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

Hi Well I also thought that the iPad version of the skygo app would work via HDMI out on a TV! So now I have wasted one device doing this, how do I go about resetting this device and then using a laptop instead and the sky go dektop software as I don't want to have both device options blocked for TV use if one does not do what I want it to!

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

In addition please confirm if sky go desktop can do live tv or download only? It seems that you can output a tv from a laptop but not watch live and yet you can watch live on an iPad but not output to tv! Seems nonsensical to put differing restrictions on devices which are both capable of tv out functions...

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

Hi Samantha+Collinge,

 

Sorry for the delay to your post. 

 

Unfortunately no, connecting your iPad to the tv is not possible at the moment, but this may be something that is introduced in the future. This functionality would be down to Apple however as the devices would need to be enabled to be able to carry out this function.

 

 

Many thanks,

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

This has to be in an update soon!

 

I would play it occasionally through the HDMI cable in the spare room, it has to be for commercial reasons so you would buy multiroom instead. 

 

Every other app can play this way, Iplayer, ITV, 4od.

Understand what it has to do with apple, in fact as an app developer myself I can tell you that it is the developer (ie Sky) who has disabled this feature not apple. You should really

Re: sky go ipad 2 connect tv

It's so you have to have Sky Broadband & Set Top box services to watch it. I have had Sky for a very long time and need ultra fast broadband as I work from home in the IT industry. Sky cannot provide this to my location so I have to have Virgin but I don't see why they have to limit Sky Go IOS devices for subscribers.
