      Viewing Sky+ recordings on a tablet/phone

      Got an email yesterday to say Sky mobile customers can now view Sky+ recordings on a phone or tablet with the Sky+ and Sky Go apps ..... https://www.sky.com/help/articles/sync
      So far, I haven't been able to view a single recording on a phone or tablet.
      When I go into the Sky+ app, most of my recordings don't have the play button highlighted.

      The only ones that do don't play, I just get a message saying "this programme is currently unavailable" when the Sky Go app opens.
      Anyone else managed to get this to work ?

      It could be that the ones that don't have the play button against them are the ones that are not available via Sky Go as that certainly will be the case with any BBC ones as the BBC don't allow their content to be viewed via Sky Go.

      Pretty sure your right, that's what I thought.
      But the recordings with the play button active don't work either. When you tap the play button, the next screen gives you the option of watching it on tv or Sky Go. Selecting Sky Go opens the Go app then an error message appears saying "this programme is currently unavailable".
