      I have an iPhone and you can turn it off, in settings, then network, then disable 3G thingymajig, maybe the same on yours?

      Unless of course you already know, and it is not working having done that.

      I've been through my Settings but can't see anything obvious. It worked OK with the hacked version, but won't with the new Sky release.

      This is not a phone issue but a SkyGo app issue. To fix - open Sky Go and press the menu button on your phone, press 'settings' then press 'network preferences' then check the 'allow streaming over 3G box.

      The point is Sky is infuriating its customers who are updating their devices or taking updates and finding they can no longer get the service. The Sky developers really need to keep up - especially now if they expect to be attracting new tech-savvy customers to their NOW-TV service.

      Don't blame Sky, blame Google and the Android manufacturers. It's not Sky's fault that Android is fragmented and that uptake of new versions is so low and slow.

      It makes sense for Sky to concentrate on supporting the most popular version... and unfortunately that is not ICS or Jellybean. Why should Sky put resources into "keeping up" when so few people actually have ICS?

      Well, try: "because it will keep thousands of its customers from becoming frustrated and upset"! Every other media company in the business of providing Android Apps manages perfectly well to keep up. Even our own cash-strapped BBC announced within days of the source code for Jelly Bean being released that it was already working on an update for iPlayer which it would release "soon". As I said before, the way Sky carry on you would think they were the only people in the world who have to make deals with content providers. Netflix, Major League Baseball, HBO all have the need to safeguard the rights of content providers. I don't see any of them making the kind of song and dance we are getting from Sky and yet they still manage to keep android updates coming for almost the full range of phones and tablets.

      Do I detect a nasty little hint of Schadenfreude here ?

      As it happens HTC don't seem a lot better at gauging what customer reaction is likely to be than Sky. The fact is I am willing to make a large bet that the majority of Desire HD users would be quite happy to have to back up and restore their data in order to get the long awaited updated. Now that they are starting to tell the truth about why the update was cancelled at the eleventh hour, I would make a small bet that HTC might even cave in to customer protests and release the update after all. Now, whether Sky Go would support a release that will be only semi-official at best (I can't see the individual carriers wanting to get involved making branded versions) is another matter .

      Where did you get this information Paul?

      Can you provide a suitable link to back up this statement as we need to be sure that this is actually the case.

      If it is true, then it is a disgrace, but I would like proof.

      Just so people are aware, the post was removed at the OP's request and not because we were over zealous.
