Sky Sports App unable to use on new iPad - HELP REQUESTED FROM SKY - PLEASE :-)

REQUEST FOR HELP FROM SKY SUPPORT

I have bought a new iPad 3.  My ipad 2 had the Sky Sports App on it and therefore when I tried to use the same app on my ipad 3 I get the message that says "you have reached the max no of iOS devices authorised etc etc  . .  ."

 

1.On the ipad 3 I have deleted all Sky Apps (News, Go, Sports. Sky+)

2.On my Apple Mac pc I have changed the sky ID password

3.On the ipad 2 I have deleted the Sky ipad Sports App.

4.On the ipad 3 I have downloaded a fresh version of Sky Sports News, Sky Sports App, Sky Go App and Sky + App

5. On the ipad 3:-

(a)Sky News works fine and plays live TV (using the new password)

(b)Sky Go works fine (using the new password)

(c)Sky + works fine (using new password)

(d)Sky Sports App : If iI use the new password it says invalid credentials, and if I use the old one iit says "you have reached the maximum no of iOS devices etc etc...."

 

Please note that my ipad 3 is also the second device in my account and is a managed device.

 

Please can you provide some help as I think I have tried evrything previously recommended in other posts.

Hi Roger+Cuthbert

 

Welcome to the Forum and thanks for posting. 

 

Can I ask you to try to log in to the Sky Sports App again with the new password? 

It sounds like the new password had not filtered through to the App at the time you were trying to log in.

Please get in touch if you are still having a problem.

 

Many thanks

It does now seem to accept my new password, that is it didn't give me an error for that, but it did say I have reached the limit of iOS devices. Strange thing though I think it k May have given me an option to RESET but I hit OK to quickly. Logging it again just says too many iOS devices but now no option to RESET. Was I dreaming. Help.

Hi there - I have the same issue following replacement of my iPad - can use the Sky Go app ok, but consistently get the maximum devices reached on the sky Sports app. Pleas could someone on the Sky helpdesk perform a reset so that my new iPad will work?
