BBC and Sky catch-up apps experience iOS fault

Both the BBC’s iPlayer and Sky’s Now TV app are experiencing problems on iPhones and iPads at the current time. The fault does appear to be limited to the iPlayer, Sky Go and Now TV apps on iOS and the problems first surfaced last night.
However, neither organisation were able to provide an explanation about the situation at this time. Although the director of Now TV did make a suggestion that altering a device’s date setting with give you a temporary workaround to the issue.

“It’s a Sky-wide issue, so it’s both our app and Sky Go,” Gidon Katz told the BBC. “It appears to be related to a date configuration. So, if you reset your iOS device to yesterday’s date it would work.

The only comment from the BBC was: “We are aware of an issue affecting iOS.”
