Can’t watch sky sports news!

Hi, first post on here!

Why is it that I can watch all other sky sports channels on my LG TV but not sky sports news?

I can watch it on my other LG TV’s in the house but not my main TV!

All I get us a very pixelated mostly green screen.

I’ve been on live chat but with no luck?

Any help would be good. 👍🏻

Hi @Redveedub 

 

Maybe try unplugging the power to the LG television for around 2 minutes to see if that makes any improvements.

 

The next thing i would try is a reboot on your Router and if using wifi maybe try a different wifi channel or maybe change from 2.4ghz to 5ghz or vice versa if you are using a dual band Router.

 

It using Ethernet, then maybe temporary test over wifi instead if the room where the LG TV is located can get a decent wifi reception.

 

After that maybe try a fresh NOW App download on your television.

 

I don't own an LG to see if the Sky Sports News channel is a problem or not

LG TVs green-screen when they can’t make any sense of the incoming signal.

 

Is Sky Sports News only available with a Sports Membership? I’ve got several LG TVs I can try it on, but I don’t have a Sports Pass, if that’s needed here 😢

Please note that I am just a customer like you, and my advice may well be worth no more than exactly what you paid for it.

That’s one of the channels you just need an active membership which doesn’t need to be sports. 

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help

Good-oh, I’ll have a look tomorrow then.

 

Doesn't sound like a widespread problem though, or else the Community would have lit up about it…

@schnapps Hi buddy.  Yes, it’s on sky sports package but very bizarrely it works on 3 other LG TV’s in the house!

Hi, do you still have the issue? My skysports news and skysports football channels are the same on my LG TV. All over channels like main event work. Reset the router and reinstalled the app and still the same.
