Sky Go and Now TV Users Fuming After Premier League Finale Fail

By Gerald Lynch on at

Manchester City have claimed the Premier League title for 2014. But if you were a Sky Go or Now TV user trying to watch the triumphant finale to the season, you'd be hard pressed to know its outcome -- both of Sky's streaming services suffered outages during the match.


It's thought that high numbers of people logging on to watch the game simultaneously across the two services caused the downtime, with Sky's servers being overwhelmed.

"We'd like to apologise again for this afternoon's issues. We're working as hard as we can to get things running as soon as possible," Sky told its users on the Now TV community page.

"We'll be contacting all sports pass customers automatically to provide a refund or a replacement pass. You don't need to do anything to make this happen."

While Pay-As-You-View Now TV customers are now likely to get a refund due to the issues, it's not yet clear how Sky will make it up to their Sky Go viewers.
