      Any chance of Sky Go getting actual official support on windows 8/8.1 instead of having to use 3rd party browsers like Chrome where the support for Silverlight has recently been deleted in the latest version?

      It is something that gets asked for on a regular basis. So far it hasn't happened and Sky are keeping quite.

      You can download the Sky Desktop program on any current Windows computer in order to warch downloaded content.

      Live content is only available through a browser though.

      I thought that Chrome had mafe a reprieve for Silverlight though? Aren't they retaining support until sometime in 2015 now?
