    Edge + SKY GO - FAIL, IE11 + Sky Go - Pass (Windows 10 PRO RTM)


    Hi there

    While Silverlight is as everybody knows RUBBISH it IS a requirement for watching SKY GO on Windows. Sky GO on Android doesn't use it so It must be possible for Ms to have some other method of protecting DRM material.

    So (and SKY GO is used by loads of SKY customers --particularly for Sport and Movies) as EDGE which (intentionally) doesn't support Silverlight people will have to keep IE11 for the foreseeable future - unless one wants to use CHROME - which I don't really like --YMMV on this one of course.

    If Ms wants people to switch as quick as possible to EDGE they need to get current applications to work with it.

    At least though SKY GO works on W10 !!.

    (For those who don't know what SKY GO is - it's the service from the U.K Satellite Broadcaster SKY that people can use to stream programs on to their tablets, computers and phones - quite a good service BTW if you have SKY TV.

    Good on some Rail services too in UK where trains have fast Wi-Fi available !!!

    Cheers
    jimbo

    sky go will not work on windows 10

    Hi

    If you have Windows 10, you now have two web browsers built-in. One is new and called Edge and the other is IE11. Are you using Edge?

    If you having trouble with watching Sky Go, then it is probably because Sky Go uses the Silverlight add-on which Edge doesn't support. To get around this simply use IE11.

    IE11 can be found by searching for Internet Explorer from the Search
    box at the bottom of the screen. When Internet Explorer Desktop app
    appears in the list of search results either select it (or right click on it and
    Pin to Start or Pin to taskbar to make it easier to access later).

    If you haven't yet installed Silverlight add-on, it is a free download from Microsoft here:

    Get Silverlight | Microsoft Silverlight .
