Amazon Fire tablet owners can now watch Sky TV content on the move via Sky Go.
Sky’s mobile portal for Sky TV subscribers has long been available on the great majority of Android devices. Now it’s finally available on Amazon’s Fire tablets, just in time for Christmas.
Seasonal movies lined up on Sky Movies this year include The Grinch, Night at the Museum, Fred Claus, Exodus: Gods & Kings, Avengers: Age of Ultron and of course Elf, which Sky has the exclusive rights to for the foreseeable.

Though Sky says that ‘multiple generations’ of Fire tablets will be able to install the Sky Go app, there’s no comprehensive list of supported Amazon devices yet. Sky has confirmed that the new sub-£50 Fire tablet will be supported, however.
Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s director of TV products, commented: “It’s brilliant that Amazon Fire tablets are now compatible with Sky Go in time for the great line up of TV this December.
“There’s something for everyone to watch including Cinderella for princes and princesses, Geordie Shore for reality TV addicts and the World Darts Championship for those with a competitive spirit. And Sky Go is set to get even better in 2016, with more great content, and a series of exciting updates.”
Sky has been unable to confirm whether or not Amazon’s Fire tablets will be supported by the My Q apps. My Q is a feature of Sky Q, Sky’s forthcoming TV platform which promises a smooth, seamless viewing experience across multiple devices. Due for release early next year, Sky Q promises 4K Ultra HD TV content and the ability to record up to four programmes at once on the Sky Q Silver set-top box.
You can download Sky for iOS, Android and Amazon Fire devices from iTunes App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore now.
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.

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.
Sky Go On Fire Tablets
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
