On Demand Content

On the PC version of Sky Go, as well as being able to watch live TV, you can also download content from the Sky Anytime service (which you can also do from a Sky+HD box connected to a Sky Broadband account).

We found the TV content on offer to be a little thin. In the Comedy section, we only found 4 shows (My Family, Angry Boys, Modern Family and Raising Hope), with just two shows in sci-fi (Stargate Universe and Ten Wolf). Movies was a bit better populated, with a fairly decent selection of movies that have recently appeared on the many Sky Movies channels.

The Comedy section of Sky Go Movies

To watch the on-demand stuff, you can either stream the content from your web browser, or if you download the separate Sky Go application, you can select an on-demand show from the library, and the programme will be downloaded onto your hard drive, so that you can watch it offline.

The downloadable PC application uses Microsoft Silverlight, and allows you to watch downloaded content for a specified period. A download of a 90 minute show took around 45 minutes when we tested, and allowed us a 6 day pass to watch what we’d downloaded

Sky Go Restrictions

The Sky Go service is free to Sky subscribers, but you can watch what you subscribe to, so you’ll only get the Sky Go Sky Movies channels if you subscribe to Sky Movies on the TV service.

If you’re not a Sky TV subscriber, you can still sign up thought, and watch channels and movies without the need for a satellite dish. Prices and signup information can be found on the Sky Go Site

Also, note that you can only have two devices “authorised” to use Sky Go – perhaps a desktop computer and an iPhone. You’re not allowed a third device, although you can delete one of your two devices, to make room for a different device.

You can manage your devices on the Sky Go website, where you’ll be required to enter your Sky iD username and password.

Sky Go Questions

How much bandwidth do I need to watch Sky Go?

Sky recommends 2Mbps for home broadband, and between 180-1400kbps on the 3G mobile network

How do I get more channels including radio channels that are within my package. I can only seem to get some of the t.v channels and none of the plus one channels or any of the radio/music channels.

Please advise.

Some things are just made to be watched on a big screen. So, when it comes to Sky Go, there are times you want to ditch that laptop, tablet or smartphone and kick back in front of a TV. Here’s how to stream Sky Go on your TV.

Sky Go has been around for some time now and it’s gone through several iterations, including some confusing crossovers with the Sky Q app. The app’s main function is letting you watch your Sky package over the internet – a super useful feature when you’re away from home or just not in the same room as your Sky box.

Can I Watch Sky Mobile Tv On My Laptop

While being able to watch Sky on your Android or iOS device – from a Samsung Galaxy phone to an iPad – will be a marvel for some, sometimes it just isn’t good enough. The heart-pounding action scenes of Game of Thrones or Gangs of London on even the largest mobile device just won’t do.

We’ve put together this handy guide to show you just how to watch Sky Go on a TV.

How do I stream Sky Go to my TV?

Kicking things off on a bit of a downer, the simple answer is you can’t. Never fear, you can get Sky Go on a TV using a good ol’ cable.

Unfortunately, Sky is yet to add any kind of casting function to the Sky Go app – as you can do with other streaming services like Netflix or Amazon – and this means there’s no way to shift the app’s mobile content from your phone or tablet to a TV. A lack of a Sky Go app on smart TVs doesn’t help the situation either.

Instead, you’ll need to grab your laptop and download Sky Go if you haven’t already. The next step is to check what connections your laptop has and, fingers crossed, it has an HDMI port and you’ve got a handy HDMI cable lying around.

Other solutions include a VGA/DVI connection on some older machines or a more flexible Thunderbolt port, but HDMI is the simplest way of going about things. Here’s exactly how to do it:

  • Open the Sky Go app on your laptop
  • Find what you want to watch and go fullscreen
  • Attach the HDMI cable to your laptop
  • Plug the other end into a free HDMI port on the back of the TV
  • Make sure you are on the correct HDMI input on the TV and you are all set
