      I can only guess that someone has shown the copyright holders a way to circumvent many of the protections in the past.

      It may also be worth visiting the accommodations of University Students to see just how many are using Sky Go in order to watch TV. I am sure that many would love to plug their tablets or smart phones into the TV in order to get a better picture, rather than spend hours on Facebook or Twitter chatting with their friends back home.

      (note the hint of sarcasm towards the end )

      But we are paying the copyright holders via sky for the right to watch it!!!

      And why pick on students? They are watching a service they or their family are paying for, they have every right to watch tv via sky go. That's the whole idea?!! What are you suggesting?

      Also, they won't get a better picture by plugging it into a tv, it would be exactly the same quality, just bigger. And what exactly would be the problem with that anyway?
