Hi David

Which bit do you find inaccessible?  I agree the video shots wouldn't be
much good to many of us, but Sky Sports News Radio is definitely accessible,
and that was worth a free download if nothing else!


Kind Regards,

Hi,

I must admit, I've found that most of the Sky Sports app is inaccessible. I
wonder if Sky Sports Radio will appear on Radio Time, and hence in Tune In
Radio, Wunder Radio and Ootunes?

Cheers
Dave
