In today’s guide, I am going to tell you everything about how we can install and use SkyGo on Firestick easily. Don’t forget to read the complete instructions and don’t skip any step otherwise, you will be failed. If you already don’t know about this app then it is the package from Sky TV.

Can You Get Sky Go on Firestick?
Before we move towards the guide there is a question that many people are asking throughout the internet as can I get Sky Go on Firestick? The answer is Yes you can get the Sky Go app on Firestick 4K, FireTV Cube, and other devices instantly. Although the app is not officially available yet but to get this app we simply need to sideload it.
Just like this app, there are various apps that are available on the different app stores but not on the Amazon Store. It is because these apps are not compatible with the TV yet or they haven’t met an agreement with Amazon. In this way to get these sorts of apps that are not available on the Amazon Store the simple trick to get them is sideloading.
The sideloading of the apps is also known as Jailbreaking which is completely natural and is not harmful at all. It is basically a feature that is disabled by default but it can be enabled instantly. I have written a whole guide on Jailbreak that you should probably need to read if you don’t know much about sideloading: What is Jailbreak & How to jailbreak Firestick

Instead of this they also offer video-on-demand features and it has around 1000’s of movies and TV shows. You can also request them to add your favorite movie or TV show and they will do it within a month or later.
Hulu is an application that provides TV Shows, & web-series, however, it also has a Live TV supports. It is a premium application that costs money to watch their content and the pricing packages are also different. If you purchase Hulu only to watch movies or Web-series it will cost around $5.99/m ad-supported and $11.99/m without ads.
It also has pricing plans for those who want to subscribe to Live TV channels then you can purchase its separate membership which costs $54.99/m. In this plan, you will get some DVR option, Watch on Unlimited Screens, HBO Max, Starz, & Showtime as well.
No need to intro about this app as Netflix is the world’s leading TV channel company. This awesome application provides users with around 13000+ movies they are updating it daily. Instead of this they also offer 200+ web-series like Money Heist, Dark, Stranger Things, You, and so on.
It is a paid application that has three different pricing plans that include basic, Standard & premium. In premium membership, we get everything like 4 screen access, unlimited movies & TV shows, download for offline, and stream HD/UHD as well.
Another paid TV channel that helps a user to watch movies, TV shows, Web-Series, Documentaries, Sports, Comedy, and all sorts of entertainment. It doesn’t have a Live TV feature however with the unlimited database of movies and TV shows you don’t feel to have Live Tv.
Showtime offers its users to start a free trial so after you love this service then you can go with their subscription. However, after the trial, it will cost you $11/month and one single account can be used to stream in two devices simultaneously.
