      Not sure why you can't get it on Win 8. I have it on my Media PC and have done since it was introduced. There is no difference between Win 7 and 8 really, just a new way of starting if you want to use it.. Don't forget you can also get access to 4oD, BBC iPlayer etc., which gives you a bit of choice.

      Strange as Sky Go Desktop is working fine on my Win 8.1 Laptop.

      I believe that there are some known issues with the browser version for some people with different browers. I believe that this had been addressed now. Sky Go is certainly working with IE11 and FF26.

      A request has also been made for a Win 8 app version for the PC/Laptop environment, as well as the mobile phones. This isn't currently available and I don't know if it is being written at this point.

      Well I never I missed that some how and yes it works on IE11 in 8.1 so please ignore my post about win 7 mode. I believe the reason for no app for win 8.1, surface pro and windows smartphone is due to the fact that 1 app don't fit all

      Just to update this, now that my dish has been fixed and I'm back to normal. I had given up on getting Sky Go to work on my Windows 8.0 laptop. I have no idea why but it works fine now for downloads. Thanks for the help.

      Good news at last .

      Give it a few days, perhaps a weekend job, but I would suggest now is the time to upgrade to Windows 8.1.

      I was sceptical myself at first, but all seems to be fine here.
