SKY Sports Activation

Hi,

 

I ordered SKY Sport 1 & 2 on Monday, can anyone tell me how long does it take for the channels to be activated, as we currently can not access them. All we get is a grey screen and a white dot in the top right hand corner of the screen.

 

I have tried to activate the card & can see ESPN but not SKY Sports.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: SKY Sports Activation

hi if you can see ESPN and not sky sports on channel 41 then it sounds like there is an issue with your account and potentially sky sports has not been setup correctly. I think a simple call to BT will fix this as my view is the account does not correctly have sky sports added, as you have said you can see ESPN playing ok.

 

hope this helps

Re: SKY Sports Activation

Well Sky sports 1 & 2 are still not switched on inspite of calls to the Vision team, I have been waiting since Monday. My account is set up correctly, so I can not see  what the issue is. ESPN works fine. I am on the current Vision software running Windows CE & not the new one.

 

I have asked the Vision team for the latest software update, but so far they have refused to issue it.

 

So looks like I will have to cancel the service & go to SKY as I have been missed sold the product....Looks like one for Trading Standards to investigate...

Re: SKY Sports Activation

the new software will have nothing to do with trading standards. the mods have asked for your details so they can help. why don't you let them help you?
