    Does anyone know if it'll work, via Apple TV?

    AirPlay is disabled, but was hoping to get round that using mirroring.

    I hate what Sky have done with Sky Go. Sky Player was great, could have something like 11 devices. Sky Go only allows you to have 2!

    My Mac, my roommate's laptop and that's it. What about the Xbox and our iPhones? Only good thing to come out of Sky Go is they let you stream on two devices at once.

    Doesn't surprise me Sky won't let AirPlay work on it. No different to me plugging my laptop into someone's telly and using Sky Go. They clearly don't want people using Sky Go as a replacement for the TV package.

    obviously they don't. why would they?
    their business is selling tv subscriptions, if you want to watch sky on tv then subscribe to their tv packages.

    Though they've given the Xbox Sky Go..

    "TV packages" and "internet packages" are becoming the same thing.

    Sky player was 5 devices.

    I wonder if it might change down the line but I bet they don't allow it cos it might impact their Multiroom audience.

    Registered my iPad 2 to my mates SKY account, got the SKY Go app running sweet but if I try AirPlay via my ATV2 I get 'doesn't support hdmi output' error. Is the only way round to wait for the iOS 5 jailbreak and use displayout?

    I tried to use my Skygo today and realized I can't remove a device anymore. Just 1 per month. That's ridiculous!
