      Initially the only device is iPad, as far as I can see. The other drawback is you cannot download much to your device either. There are so many programmes and channels you cannot download from. That part of sync programmes for off line usage is very misleading. Basically if you cannot download now on sky go. You cannot sync. This part of what I think is a very good system really is disappointing.

      Pity. I was hoping it would be a case of anything recorded you could also download to tab be it ipad/android etc.

      Virgin have been able to do "multi-box" streaming for a few years as long as you had ethernet cable from each TIVO box to the router so the rights haven't improved much.
      They already had this ability on Sky's channels AFAIK.
      The main issues were things like BBC, UKTV, etc which from these reports seem to be the main hold-outs on SkyQ too.

      FYI I may work for Sky but never been on any trials for new kit, so far. Or at least any I can talk about!
      Please note the views and recommendations in my posts are my own and in no way reflect the views of Sky

      You can stream all these channels and recordings to your devices. You just cannot take them away for off line viewing.
