    Hello all,

    New to the forums and this is my first post here...

    Just purchased a new iMac and was looking to get sky go working.

    However, having some issues in that it will not register the device?

    I have installed silverlight etc and was looking to see if anyone knows the reason on here?

    I am thinking it is because there is no support for Mavericks OS just a hunch....

    Thanks for any help given

    Mines exactly the same...

    1) Loses registration if I try viewing Sky over the web.
    2) Wont allow me to download Sky Go.

    Sky put it down to Mavericks and Mountain Lion not being supported.

    Bit of a joke TBH.

    Surprising that Sky say Mavericks it not supported, my Sky Go works fine on Mavericks on my 2011 iMac. I use it to watch the football all the time when my wife banishes me from the living room.

    Can be fixed by using Firefox as the browser.....has problems with safari.

    It will only work from the web site. I have a late 2013 iMac 21.5" and have tried using the app, to no avail, so just use the web site, without problems. Don't forget that Sky will only allow one change a month, which is very frustrating.

    Not Compatible

    Skygo is not compatible with mac at present apparently not Mavericks or Mountain Lion. This is because the latest silverlight plugin does not operate with these due to a security issue.

    Straight from Ranjan at sky go online help.

    ******** - can't sign in to sky go to watch the football. not very happy.
