For those of us on Sky Sports Now would be intresting to hear your experience on A-league viewing. Last nights Adelaide vs Sydney FC game was good but West Sydney vs Mariners is completely unwatchable.

So many buffers for this game and I'm on fibre, VPN+Youtube works better. I've contacted Sky to see if they can give Sky Sports Now customers access to beinconnect as I want to see a difference. Tommorow is gonna suck if its like it is for this game. :(




We signed up for this in August and have had no issues until this past weekend. The games were totally unwatchable. The stream was constantly freezing. We ended up watching on a different stream with lower resolution. Have been in email contact with sky but they seem clueless as to what I'm even talking about. Not keen to keep paying $39 per month for this kind of mess.

so it happened once over a 6 month period and you're suggesting its a mess? I agree that the occurrence is annoying but once over 6 months is nothing unusual for any internet streaming service.

We are into the third day and the service is still not working. The other streaming services that we subscibe to will go down for a period of say ten minutes or so, but to miss three days of games is, indeed, a mess in my books.

Yes, I realise that I should have specified that it was more than just the missed Nix game. It was from Saturday morning through till now. And the other streaming services are working fine, so the problem is definitely Sky. We tried on several computers and devices too. Not joy there either.

i talked to someone at sky yesterday they told me to delete the app from my ps4 and then reinstall it and that should fix the problem. tried it and it went fine for a little while then started buffering again, may go back to dodgy streams as after you get through the adverts the stream actually works for the whole game.

We were ok for a while this evening but then the buffering started up again. Not good.

Bein Sport Connect finally has a login for Sky Sports Now so you can watch football on either Bein Sports Connect app or Sky Sports Now

Still have my Sky Sport Now at this point, will check out what's on Neon. I assume it's different stuff than what Neflix has.

How does one get on to Neon if subscribed to Sky Sport Now? I tried signing in with my sky now username and password but no joy.  I'm so cluelss. Didn't see anything from sky now that mentioned Neon but could have missed it in this crazy week.
Usually would not be interested, but these are strange times so may actually watch Neon if we have access.

i think you have to register with neon and make a password, i got an email from sky sport now with a code to put in to get the 3 month offer if you did not get this email maybe contact sky sport now.

I think I may have deleted it. I vaguely remember something like that. I'll check my trash and if not there anymore will contact sky sport now. thanks
