yep dude your only allowed to erase each device slot to add a new device once per a month now b/c the latest rubbish T&C's.
So note to the people who don't have satellite box packages and only web subscription to Sky Go make sure you chose wisely b/c I believe you cant add extra users to account and so could end up being locked out for a month if you attach your 2 slots to android devices you cant get streaming.

have been using gumbalds apk for the last few days, bit am getting increasing error 17a msg. Whilst watching sports, ain't to much of a problem just reload channel. I have noticed however it seems to do it on wifi and not on 3g. Is there a reason for this?

seem the I brigade are kicking off big style on the sky forum as the only way sky can big correct in blocking rooted devices is by now blocking jail broken devices.Hopefully they will listen to the apple crowd and on the back of it they will remove the root block
HTC ONE In Silver , Nexus7 2012 and ASUS EPAD transformer

Looks like the HD2 and ICS doesnt work though. I suspect this is because of the Hardware Acceleration thing though.
I only have Sky News working at the moment because of the root restrictions, and I can't get OTA to make any difference when using the temp-unroot function.

Remember the apk on page 13 is now a version out of date, there is every possibility sky could cut old versions off to force updates which would be a deliberate act to stop people on other devices using it.

Lmao, not a chance when sky go first came out on apple it was blocked for jailbreak. What happened was jailbreak changed and their block no longer worked. All this has done is put them back to how it was meant to be anyway. Sky invest far too much time and money into their drm protection to let jailbreak and rooted devices work.

Feeling left out at the moment but lets hope it's matter of time before we can enjoy watching sky on HTC phones..
Yes it seems none of the HTC devices on Sky's supported list have been reported working still beyond Sky News unless they are on stock ROM and never been rooted.
Phone: Nexus 4 Stock Android 4.4.2
Tablet: Asus TF201 on the Dream Combo: HairyBean 2.31 and Hunds F2FS Kernel

That is because it detects more than just root, one theory is it detects custom recovery and other root flags that may be in the kernel.
