    Hi. I would like to know why does Sky not have an app that includes viewers from all around the world. The apps on here are only for UK viewers. With all your technology Sky I don't see it as a problem. I will gladly be your first subscriber from South Africa. Please make a plan in developing those much needed apps. Thank you.. Andre
