I have recently bought the sky sports mobile pass now that the premier league has restarted and because it’s the mobile pass I can only watch on my iPhone 11 Pro Max and after updating it to iOS 14 it crashes instantly on opening the app so I was wondering when it would get a fix or if I could get an upgrade on my pass so I could watch on another device until the crashing is fixed
Solved! Go to Solution.
First of all there’s nothing in the terms and conditions to exclude publicly accessible new or beta releases of operating systems for supported devices.
I’ve been running iOS 14 since the WWDC keynote and this is the breakdown of apps in the same category as Now TV:
Now TV has consistently (along with Sky Go - presumably same org in Sky), on all platforms, been the app and service with the worst maintained experience. On Apple TV the interface is over 5 years out of date just lifted and shifted from the previous iteration of the hardware. This will not be a case of Apple shipping a broken Operating System but rather Now TV’s application being poorly built such that it’s fragile to the point of failing to even launch with the new version of iOS.
This should be resolved now that iOS 14 is in public beta. If literally every other video streaming platform can continue to work on iOS 14 with no additional effort, there’s no reason why Now TV shouldn’t work, unless Sky are doing some roundabout or tricksy things to circumvent restrictions imposed by Apple through the public SDKs.
add the sky sports app to the list of not working.
Being given the excuse of it being in beta is a weak one,
1) its a public beta, anyone can use it
2) its ios... i could probably predict now when ios15 beta will be out now its that much like clockwork! So they should of been prepared for this.
just feels like they dont care.
Same here no luck with iOS 14 on iPad and iPhone. The only other app that crashes on me was Rakuten streaming and was fix within weeks. Now on public beta 4 and still crashing, reported via beta feedback.
tried to join the beta testingNowTV app but had no response from them. Waste of subscription
