To add insult to injury, I see that the HTC One M8 - which is only just out - is supported already. <please insert rude word of your choice here>
Which to me suggests the delay with supporting the Max is for technical reasons rather than just ignoring the device.
Can't understand Sky's lack of explanation though.

Kingfisher i wish you would stop defending sky its getting rather boring.If you read what sky posted they clearly say its because of demand and does not mention any tech issues.If you know anythjng about the htc one max you wil know its specs including resoloution are the same as the htc one.The only difference is screen size .
It is yet again skys backward thinking that stops it being support and like they says themsleves demand or lack of it as they see ,this why they dont feel they have to support it .Like i keep saying you only have to look BT sports app to see how to provide an equal service across platforms .
Wheres our all in one app promised months ago,let me guess their struggling with it .

I am working on getting an explanation for the delay. Sometimes in these cases a delay can be caused by the third party. In this case it may be HTC.
Let me see what i can find out.

there is a specific issue with video playback on this device. Most of the development teams efforts are currently focused on creating the new combined tablet and phone app for Android at the minute
We will still be working on support for the HTC One Max but I cannot confirm when this will be.

I would say the superusers are far from sycophants! They push us for answers as hard (if not more so) than normal forum users through the superuser programme.
I have been trying to get more information on the HTC One Max specifically for a while now. Thankfully I have been able to give a bit more info this time around.
For some reason the One Max seems to be giving us real trouble with video playback, we are working on it though with the current priority being the release of the combined app.
Maybe the fix for the One Max is tied into the combined app work? I'm not too sure.

Thanks for the explanation Sam. I'll admit that I don't understand how the video playback differs from the rest of the HTC One series, I thought it was just a bigger screen!
This combined Android app, will THAT work on the Max? Asks he hopefully.

I hope that will be the case Brian+Cooper
HTC must have fiddled with something on the Max, otherwise we would have added support for it already. If you think about it apart from genuine issues during testing why else would we hold it back? It's a beast and ideal for Sky Go.
