My dad's getting multi room which enable his online account to be used on me iphone will tell you how it goes.

i have used it on my N95 before and it is good as long as you have a strong connection, dosnt work so great on the bus or the train and traveling at speed

Weird, but if you had been at the match last night you could have known it was handball by watching it on your phone in the stands via sky sports and yet the people in charge hadn't the foggiest.

Nope you cannot use it on an ipod touch.

EDIT i thought it was only through 3g.

He probably means illegally, you can watch the legal version it says so here skysports.com/mob…tml

The quality's pretty good. You need to have a wifi hotspot in order for it to work though.

I'm doing the 3 month free trial, but I don't think I'd pay £6 per month for it when the trial's over.

^ Um you are thinking of xbox. mobile tv is £6 a month, regardless of subscription.

Anyways OP... good picture quality, seems reliable, should work fine on ipod touch as even on iphone you are required to use wifi unless you use 3G unrestrictor or similar jailbroken software.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

ah right so you can use it on 3g.

Actually no. I tried it the other day when your thread was about.

If you try and sign in it tells you need multi room or you need HD subscription.

I will try it later and see if it blocks me going further.:)

Dude trust me - I have both, multi room and HD. xbox (when it worked) was happy with this - and I can watch tv online as well (on the sky website). Sadly the mobile tv is separate (unless it was a fault, in which case they have 3 months to fix!)[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Strange, did you make one of these online accounts?

I say it like this as this is the information it requires when I log in through that app.

[FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="DarkGreen"]firstly are we talking about the same app. iphone, the free app, called "mobile tv"?

Yeh we are talking about the same. I will re-read what it says on me phone when I long in the same sort of account.

It's changed. They must of picked up on it, when everyone got the 3 months free on there accounts. Damn was looking forward to showing off to the mates. Now says subscribe.

I will accept the xbox account though.

Oh so can i use my uncles sky account on my xbox which is at a different house? he has all the channels apart from movies but has a mutli room.

[FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Sienna"]yes but not mobile TV.

Adam: as stated, I did use the 3 month code from my o2 (iphone) PAYG account so I'm good for a few months. Don't think its worth £6 though.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Any idea of how they would find out? cos his sky box isnt connected to the landline.

Nah, it was one of the reasons I was going to be so charitable with that free code.

If you want it anyone you can have it.

It's attached to your debit/cc account.

Don't think I could bring myself to watch that many full games on such a small screen. It'd be good if you stay away in hotels with a job or something.

My dad has Sky multiroom full package and I'm using it at my house through the XBOX and pc with no problems at all.
