Sky Go buffering

Hi

For the past couple of days I've been unable to use sky go - i log in, get the license message, the connecting message, then 'buffering 0%' which just sticks. i've tried all the usual things such as restarting my laptop, turning my internet off at the wall (the speed is fine and other streams seem ok), reinstalling Silverlight, Flashplayer and other media playback things, trying different browsers (I usually use firefox which has worked fine with sky go in the past). i've also tried disabling different add-ons which has no effect either.

Please help, I'm not too happy with the service at the moment!

Thanks

Re: Sky Go buffering

I've got exactly the same problem.

 

My PC is running Windows 7, and I've tried using Sky Go with both Chrome and IE 10, and it doesn't work with either of them - at best I get a couple of seconds of video and then it just rebuffers continually. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Silverlight, and that didn't work either. I've done a speed test on my internet connection and it's as fast as usual (about 9Mbps).

 

Everything worked fine up until a couple of days ago.

Having exactly the same problem. Deleted silverlight and reinstalled, no difference. Missing quite a lot of the Tour at the moment.

Re: Sky Go buffering

i have been having exactly the same issue and have also tried all the troubleshooting suggestions.

there is a number of threads on the forum from the last couple of days all with the same problem - is sky aware of these widespread current issues and is it getting anywhere re sorting it out?

Would you be able to tell us how you are connecting to Sky Go? Is it via a Wired or Wireless connection?

 

Let us know when you can.

Re: Sky Go buffering

Hi RosieMay3535,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Does it help if you connect the laptop to your router via an Ethernet cable?

 

Cheers,

Re: Sky Go buffering

I have exactly the same problem. I also have tried all the troubleshooting options - including switching to Ethernet cable from wifi.

This is extremely frustrating as Sky Go is one of the reasons I retain my sky subscription..

Please help

Many thanks
Gary
