    sky sports app from iphone to hdmi tv-will it work?

    hey all

    if i connect the iphone 4 to the hdmi connected tv, will the sky sports app work on the big screen? my brother pays £5 a month for the sky sports app but its on the hpone screen so not ideal to watch for several people..LOL

    so i see you can buy adaptors which can connect the iphone 4 to hdmi tvs...so before i buy the adaptor, just wanted to know whether apps like sky sports would show full screen on the tv when connected..

    anyone know?confirm?

    thanks

    It won't work as they have blocked HDMI out from the handset to prevent people from cancelling home subscription and pushing content out from the phone.

    Welcome to the Sky Help Forum, I understand your query is relating to video mirroring from the Sky Go iOS app onto a TV. I'm afraid we do not support this hence why you don't get a picture and there are no plans to introduce support for output onto another screen or TV. This restriction is in place due to our licensing agreements with the Content Providers and Studios.
