Sky News UK

Is there any way to make Sky News UK (the streaming live Sky News service) appear on  the home screen instead of the Sky News app?  I only watch the live feed and I do not want to have to scroll through to the live feed every time I want to watch.  Alternatively why not have the live feed first on the scroll list ? Or give the option for the user to change the order of the scroll list.

No, unfortunately you can't put it on the homescreen of the box, that only displays icons to open individual apps, you can't bookmark particular parts of the app.

 

i agree it would be sensible to have a permanent, fixed place for the live feed in the app when it opens, and that's hopefully something that the developers will pick up on from your post and include in a future update. Until then you'll need to keep doing what you've always done.

NOW are looking for users to join their Customer Feedback Group and help improve the service. If you're interested read more here and sign up.

 if you want Sky news LIVE in HQ use Youtube app... not the skynews app... 

The Dash stream on Youtube is HQ than the Roku app...

Thanks for that - but it does not work on the White NowTv box YouTube application or the YouTube application on a LG SMART TV.  And its really silly that it does work on a computer YouTube connection !

I have found that the solution is to use a Roku 3 box.  The SKY News app for this puts the live SKY UK news feed as the opening channel.
