Sky Go Blocked For Jailbroken Phones

Sky launched Sky Go on Android last week but it seems that Sky have blocked rooted Androids and Jailbroken Iphones.

Sky CS response : "Unfortunately we are unable to support rooted devices as this breaches the contractual agreements we have with our content providers. This also goes for Apple devices which have had their software modified."
Is this going to be the 1st step of many developers blocking modded phones ?
There is a tweak out there on Cydia which bypasses jailbreak detection in App Store applications. The developer has stated that he is trying to get a fix to add Sky Go to the list.

Lets hope its fixed soon

I still have the old Sky 'mobile TV' app on my jailbroken ip4 and it works perfectly.

It's an alternative, not as many channels as sky go though.

Yeah I have that on my phone but need to call sky to reset the number of managed devices.

Has anyone been able to find and download xCon from Cydia? I have only found version 14 but I think that the latest version should be 20.

The developer of xCon has today released a new beta version on his own cydia repo:

http://n00neimp0rtant.dyndns.org/repo

It still doesn't work for me with sky go but let me know if it does for anyone else!
