Did you know that you can watch Sky even if you’re away and don’t have direct access to your television screen? The latest development in the Sky world is that Sky Player and Sky Mobile TV have combined to form Sky Go!
What is Sky Go?
With four million household users and over 1.4 million unique users a week, Sky Go is an online television service from Sky Group provided free for Sky TV subscribers in the United Kingdom. It’s a much-improved version that is not only free for people with a Sky Box in their homes but also readily accessible to download. This app allows you to watch whatever you like, wherever you like, however you like.
The basic ideology behind this one-of-a-kind app is that you can take it anywhere with you and watch as much content as you like and that too for free — Of course, you will require a subscription. You can use this service on your phone (Android or Apple), tablet, laptop, or computer.
You must keep in mind, however, that Sky is geo-restricted so you cannot watch it outside the UK unless you unblock Sky Go with the best VPN.
How is Sky Player Different from Sky Mobile?
Well, Sky Player permits you to watch Sky online whereas Sky Mobile allows you to watch anything on your phone; dividing the services into two platforms, something you can now get from a one-all platform — Sky Go.
What to Expect from Sky Go?
It will give you access to live telecast along with catch-up TV across all Sky channels; Sky Sports Channels, Sky News, Sky Movies, Sky Atlantic, Sky Arts, MTV, ESPN, Disney, NatGeo, History, Nickelodeon, and Eden.
There are approximately 30 channels to choose from when you join through your laptop or computer device. However, if you join via Tablets or smartphones, the options will be limited. In that case, you will have access to all five channels of Sky Sports, ESPN, and Sky News.
This is great news for people who don’t want to miss out on an important sports event or match just because you were unavailable at the time. And the good news is that more channels will soon be added to the subscribers joining from phones and tablets.
So far, you are only allowed to watch Sky Go on two devices, so you have to decide whether you want to watch TV comfortably from your bed or on your smartphone while traveling to work from home or vice versa. There’s another catch: you also can’t use Sky Go when you’re on a holiday since overseas streaming is currently restricted.
If you’re using Xbox 360, the device will be available to you from a different name (Sky) but the functions will be the same as the rest.
Sky Go — Continued Domination?
This goes on to show that Sky is trying to catch up and blend with the current technological atmosphere. It is acutely aware of the demand and is planning to create its own space. Subscribers would assure you that Sky News iPad is undoubtedly one of the best apps that they’re used so far for this purpose, clearly indicating that it’s in the race and paving the way for others as well.
It is now being reported that Sky is planning to combine with the Cloud — the public Wi-Fi network that was launched this year. And hey, if you’re not yet a Sky customer, you can just have to pay £15 per month.
Wrapping this up with the admission that Sky Go became available on July 6 to all subscribers and it is completely free!
