sky sports from vodafone

I have signed up to vodafone 4g and received sky sports as part of the package, I was given a sky userid and told to visit http://vdfn.co/u8ytd. I was given a username and I set up a sky id. Problem happens when I try to link my sky id to a sky account. I do not have a sky account. how do I do the link?

Have you set up your account with weird username they text you? I set mine up with my own choice and got stuck... It's working now :smileyhappy:

Hey All,

 

When you are signing in, did you choose the: 'I subscribe to Mobile TV via Vodafone' option?

 

If you can let me know when you get a minute.

 

Cheers

Hi Eastlygod,

Once you are within the app and choose a channel to watch, you should then be prompted saying you don't have a valid subscription.

It should then let you choose this option? Let me know how you get on.

Re: sky sports from vodafone

I have registered with the details from vodafone and I'm getting stuck too as I don't have a sky account. I have downloaded the app which I can't log into. I do not want to give my google password in case I'm charged 4.99. Has anyone got this working yet? I was going to call vodafone but I'm not sure how helpful they will be

Re: sky sports from vodafone

Having same problem, signed upto Vodafone 4g with the free sky sports 1,2,3 etc but it appears that because I'm not a Sky customer I can't get in, it appears to get stuck on that page or via the App which I'm not entirely certain is the or correct one, suggests ill have to pay 4.99
Each time I try re-registering it says about receiving a message in the next 5 hours, I've already done this twice!
Can anyone help, is this offer from Vodafone to get free sports channels actually work without being a sky customer?
If so HOW do I get it to work?

Re: sky sports from vodafone

I have it working. I read different theories since I posted last night and tried all of them. I don't know which one worked. First if all I uninstalled the sky sports tv app. I don't know if this had to be done but I wanted to start the whole thing again. I have read that this should be done on 3g so I switched off wifi.
Next I went back to the text from Vodafone and reregistered on sky using the link in the text message. You will need to use a different email address.
this time, instead of making up my own user ID I used the one in the Vodafone text. I cancelled the 2nd registration screen without selecting anything. This took me to a page with an error but I ignored that.
i then downloaded the app again.
I logged on to the app using the ID which matches the one on Vodafone text however Sky changed the case to uppercase so you must do that too. That was it. Good luck

Re: sky sports from vodafone

Do this .1 Unistall the sky sport app .2 get a email address unused then go to the text that vodafone sent you and open the links to create you sky id , fill it up and where say username put the code that vodafone sent you with your own password when you finish all create your sky id , in the second page don't do anything don't fill it up just go down and cancell it gonna send you to another sky page don't do anything , download sky sport app open the app then sign in with the username ( the code that vodafone sent you ) and you own password and done !!!
