Sky Go On Iphone

Posted on  by admin

Sky Go is in the Apple App Store. You can now watch and record Sky TV on your iPhone or iPad wherever you are, live as nature intended and all in plenty of time for the start of the football.

With Sky Go you can watch entertainment, movies and sports live and on demand anywhere you like at no extra cost your Sky TV subscription. Download the app onto your compatible smartphone or tablet. I understand that you are having an issue with watching content for the Sky Go app. Let's see if we can figure out what is going on. As with any app that is downloaded from the App Store, start with closing out the app entirely and relaunching it. Then move on to restarting your iPad. I would also make sure that your iPad and the app are up to.

Sky Go and HDMI cables aren’t the easiest things to use together for various reasons. Here’s a workaround to make things a bit simpler for anyone wishing to watch Sky Go.

Sky Go is a great way to enjoy Sky channels on your TV, laptop, iPhone, iPad, Android tablet or phone.

Unfortunately, the service doesn’t allow you to use an HDMI cable directly, but there are ways to work around this issue.

Some Smart TVs also do not currently support the Sky Go app which means you might be stuck watching it on a smaller screen.

How to watch Sky Go on your phone

If you’re off on holiday or have a lot of travels planned and you’re a Sky subscriber, why not download the Sky Go app on your laptop or phone?

With this installed, you need to log in with your Sky ID and password. You should have set this up when you first joined Sky. With that done, you’re free to browse and enjoy Sky programming on your mobile device or laptop.

You can also download shows and movies to watch while you’re offline if you’re a Sky Go Extra customer, which is particularly useful when you’re heading abroad on holiday to avoid data charges.

Why won’t my HDMI cable work with Sky Go?

Sky Go On Iphone

Sky TV hasn’t cited in an official statement why an HDMI cable won’t work when trying to watch Sky Go on your TV.

The reason for HDMI and Sky Go being incompatible is most likely a way of protecting the Sky Go content. Sky may be concerned with what customers could do with the Sky Go content. For all they know, customers could be sharing content with other people who aren’t paying customers by recording shows.

We understand this can be frustrating when you pay for the service and then you can’t use it the way you want to. Many Sky Go customers wish to watch the service on a bigger screen and an HDMI cable enables just that.

Unfortunately, Sky Go doesn’t allow you to use an HDMI cable to watch it on TV.

However, the Sky Go app is downloadable for Android users, so if you have an Android TV you may be able to install the Android app and watch Sky Go content.

Alternatively, if you have a console, such as an Xbox or a PlayStation, download the Sky Go app and watch it on your TV through that way.


An economic way to watch Sky Go is by buying a streaming stick. See our guide on how to get Sky Go on an Amazon Firestick.

Sky Q is now available for your iPhone or Android phone, thanks to the nifty new Sky Q mobile app, as well as your iPad or Android tablet. Here’s everything you need to know about the Sky Q mobile app, including what features it offers, how to set it up and more.

Sky Q has led the charge in 2016 when it comes to telebox goodness, with the brilliant Sky Q service. The result was an over-the-air and over-internet feed of up to 4K UHD quality shows and films that can be watched all over the home. And now with the new Sky Q mobile app, you can take your favourite Sky Q shows and movies wherever you go.

Sky already offered an iPad app for Sky Q, but at last there’s an app for iPhone and Androids too, so pretty much every Sky subsscriber can remotely access the box, set up recordings, stream content and enjoy some TV boxsets on the go. Here’s everything you need to know.

Sky Q app: Who can use it and how does it work?

Sky Go On Jailbroken Iphone

Anyone can download the Sky Q app on Android or iOS but it’ll require a subscription with Sky to actually get any use out of it, obviously.

To access the Sky Q app’s offerings you’ll need a Sky Q box, Sky TV and more specifically Sky Q subscription.

Setting up the Sky Q mobile app is easy. Simply download the app for iOS or Android, from the App Store or Google Play. Accept the usual permissions and once done, open the app up when your phone’s connected to your home WiFi network. The app should automatically detect the Sky Q box that’s on the same Wi-Fi network and then present you with all of the features you’ll need.

It’s worth noting that if you want to access your recordings from the app, you’ll need to have a Sky Q Multiscreen subscription.

How To Get Sky App


Sky Q app: Recording and streaming

The Sky Q app allows you to record shows onto your smartphone to be watched when away from the home, or to stream them when on the same Wi-Fi network. To record and watch on the go you’ll need to make sure the phone is loaded up from home before you leave the house as you can’t record directly to the phone when out and about.

When you’ve decided on what you want to download, after browsing the app much like you do the Sky Q box, you have download options. You can download to your Sky Q box in SD or HD, choose to download to the phone or play it there on the smartphone.

Streaming at home is near instant and the quality is high to suit most modern high-res smartphone displays. This works for live TV as well as On Demand programmes. You can drag the progress bar to move anywhere in the show. If you’ve been watching on the Sky Q box the app will continue the show from where you left off seamlessly.

If you get back home, midway through a show you recorded to your phone, don’t worry about it not being on the Sky Q box. You’ll be able to access content stored on the phone via the Sky Q box too. The result should be an ability to start on one device and continue on another seamlessly no matter where it’s recorded.

Sky Q app: Remote recording

While you’re not able to download directly to the Sky Q mobile app when out of the house (and therefore out of range of your Sky Q box). the app can still be used to record upcoming shows and movies.

The Sky Q app allows you to set up new recordings, so you can watch them on your return. Once you’re back on your home Wi-Fi network you can either enjoy them on your telly as usual, or download/stream from the Sky Q box to your phone.

You’ll have access to everything you’re subscribed to on Sky right from the app meaning Sky Sports, Sky Cinema and more. Although Sky does say: “Some programmes and recordings are unavailable to watch or download via the mobile app in and out of the home.” Which ones it’s referring to are unclear at this stage.


Sky Q app: Release date and availability

The Sky Q app is available to download now for iOS and Android smartphones, as well as tablets. The app is free to install and use and simply requires a Sky Q subscription to work. Check out the complete list of compatible devices to see if the Sky Q app will work on your chosen mobile.
