Sky Go lets you stream Sky TV on your computer, mobile or tablet device, so you don't have to be tied to your TV. You can find a list of compatible devices below, as well as the technical specifications you’ll need to run Sky Go.
Please note that we continually review device support and as new devices and operating systems appear we may stop supporting older versions. This means that to continue to use Sky Go you may need to update the software on your device from time to time.
Important notice to Android users
We'll shortly be making a number of streaming and stability improvements to the Sky Go Android app with our next major update (this excludes bug fix releases). Following the update, phones running Android OS 2.2 and 2.3 will no longer be supported. The app will remain available until the point at which we need to carry out a change to the service that would require a forced app update. You will need to update your phone to Android OS 4.0 or above to continue using Sky Go.
You can update your software version by selecting software update and following the on screen instructions. You’ll need to be connected to the internet in order to download your software update.
Along with this change, the Sky Go Tablet app will also be unpublished from Google Play. You can continue using the Sky Go Tablet app alongside Sky Go until a forced app update; however, there will be no further updates to the app and it will no longer be available to download from Google Play. Customers who use the Sky Go Tablet app will be able to download the single (tablet and phone) Sky Go app from Google Play. Please ensure you watch your downloads before deleting the Sky Go Tablet app from your device and moving to Sky Go.
How many devices can I use to watch Sky Go?
With Sky Go, you can watch TV on the move on up to two devices. You can double the number of devices on which you can use Sky Go by upgrading to Sky Go Extra, allowing you to download programmes to watch offline on up to four devices.
Connecting to Sky Go with Sky Broadband
You can also watch Sky Go online with a wireless internet connection. Connect your device to your Sky wireless network.
You can extend the signal of your broadband to reach your device by adding a Wireless Booster. Learn more and purchase a Booster.
Copy protection and tracking
Sky Go does not permit the use of rooted or jail broken devices. Second screen display is also not permitted, for instance through the use of Air Play, Miracast, HDMI/TV-Out and Chromecast.
Individual user experience of Sky Go is tracked through Conviva across iOS devices and the Android tablet app. The Sky Go advertising platform also tracks individual usage for the provision of serving advertisements.
Sky employs technologies such as digital rights management and copy protection to control the play back and copying of digital content provided via Sky Go.
