Sky Go on a Set-top Box

At the time of writing, there is no set-top box offering access to Sky Go. The following notes might be helpful though:

Fetch TV? Sky Go was available to users of the Fetch TV set-up box. Fetch TV sent into administration at the end of 2011, and the SKy Go service stopped in May 2012.

3View? There were plans for the Sky Player (the predecessor to Sky Go) to be available on the 3View box. As of early 2012, the 3View box ceased to be available and the manufacturer’s website vanished. At the time of writing, we’re not sure about the fate of 3View, but there’s no Sky Go on the service, and we can’t recommend it!
