      Re: Sky Sports App For iPad Featuring f1™ ‘Race Control’ Companion Experience

      Upgraded to HD yesterday taking advantage of free for six months offer. Already had HD box so HD services available almost straight away. New F1 HD channel and red button content works fine (although not much action at the moment due to red flag!!!).

      Downloaded the Sky Sports app for iPad hoping to use Race Control features. Have signed in with SkyID. Seems to work OK but "cameras" button is greyed out. Any idea what I need to do to get full access to all Race Control features.

      I understand that some features are not available to SkyGo monthly ticket customers but I am a full Sky TV customer with HD which should entitle me to access all features.

      Contacted app support who say it can take a while for package upgrades to filter few to app access rules. Looks like we'll have wait till next race and see if it works then.
