Sky Go Apologizes After Viewers Were Denied Watching 'Mad Men' Premiere
Sky Go wrongly blocked iPad and mobile device users from watching the season 6 premiere of "Mad Men". Fans who were eager to watch the new episodes on Wednesday night, April 10 on the online player were told that there were "rights restrictions" which meant it's not allowed to play the show.
Admitting there was an error, Sky released a statement through its spokesperson on Thursday, "We'd really like to apologise to any customers who tried to watch the new episodes of Mad Men live through Sky Go. In error, the service suggested that we were unable to show the episodes due to rights issues."
"This is not the case and the episodes are now available to watch on demand through Sky Go and through our catchup service on Sky+," the spokesperson added, "And the rest of the season will be available to watch live on Sky Go."
"Mad Men" season 6 debuted on AMC Sunday, April 7 with a two-hour premiere. [SPOILER ALERT!] Jon Hamm's Don Draper once again is having an affair, this time with Linda Cardellini's Sylvia. Speaking of filming their steamy scene, the actress said, "It's always been an interesting part of the job, but they're wonderful scenes."
She went on praising Hamm, "He's great. Really great guy and a fantastic actor," adding that the actor "definitely" made her feel comfortable during the shooting of their bed scene.
