    My several attempts to install the sky go app on a fire stick and a fire stick 4K were, as at April 2019, unsuccessful. Not sure why, they install, but the app will not open.

    OK, so used downloader to install Sky Go. Now have the app showing on my Fire TV, BUT… Click it, and it goes to start opening, then nothing bounces right back to home screen.

    Is this my Fire box’s problem, an Amazon problem, the wonderful people at Sky or me being dense? Followed the instructions to the letter.

    Any help will be appreciated
