    Hi there
    @Barman58

    Sky Go on Windows still requires Silverlight so if you are watching SKY GO on a Windows device you still need IE11.


    It works fine on Android devices so as I've said before there must be people in SKY who can handle DRM via HTML5,

    So far though you still have to use IE11 to watch SKY GO on a Windows machine.

    I think a problem is SKY still have to support a load of legacy subscribers -- people like NETFLIX came straight in via streaming so were able to use new technology such as HTML5 from "The Off".

    This is always a problem -- the "New Kids on the block" don't have zillions of legacy subscribers to support.

    That said I only use SKY GO these days for the sport channels I love English PL football (refuse to call it Soccer !!) and the various forms of Rugby (League and Union) . -- I'm sure if SKY gave me an option to get these via Internet only without having to get a SKY subscription they could make a whole slew of money -- but sometimes people have so much money -- are they bothered at making any more !!!.

    Incidentally -- not sure if this will ever appear on SKY SPORTS bit there is actually an Icelandic Cricket federation who hope one day to appear in a Cricket world cup --imagine then if Iceland CC were to beat England at Lords !!!!!!.

    No It's not Apr 1 !!!!

    What? Now when Edge finally is working decently well people want to get rid of it? Sure there are a few quirk that annoys me, but overall it's a decent browser.

    I used to dislike Edge, but it's getting better and better and right now I rarely use any other browser. I even use Edge Beta on my Android devices. :)
    MS will never drop Edge. It would be a total humiliation. On tablets and touch screens Edge is great. I would use Edge all tthe time in my non touch laptop if it was not for one truly irritating bug. When I rapid scroll on a newly presented page with my mouse wheel, it sonetimes causes a swipe right action dismissing the screen. I have found I can avoid that to some degree if I single click the new page before scrolling but I often forget, and it does not always work.

    I've experienced this too.
