Wondering how to get Sky Go working on a Chromebook? Here’s how to – no HDMI cable required!
A Chromebook is a great alternative to a regular laptop and they often come at much more reasonable prices. Light, compact and easy to transport, the Chromebook is a great device for anyone on the move.
Sky Go is a fantastic app which provides Sky TV customers the ability to watch all their favourite shows on the move. Multiple devices can also be in use under the same roof – that way everyone’s happy.
So, here’s a look at whether it’s possible to get Sky Go working on a Chromebook.
Does Sky Go work with HDMI cables?
Unfortunately, Sky Go subscribers can’t plug an HDMI cable into a laptop or mobile device and hook it up to a bigger screen.
This is similar to the fact that when watching Sky Go, viewers are unable to take screenshots of a show. Overall, it seems that unless the Sky Go app is installed on the device screen you’re watching, you can’t view the content.
Sky Go Chromebook HDMI
Thankfully, for anyone with Sky Go and a Chromebook, things are quite straightforward.
The Chromebook is compatible with apps from the Google Play Store. So, head to the Google Play Store to download the Sky Go app. Once installed, log into your Sky Go account and you should be able to watch Sky Go content without a hitch.
The only downside is that an HDMI cable cannot be plugged into the Chromebook to watch on a bigger screen.Prime Video – 30 Day Free Trial

What about Sky Go and a Google Chromecast?
Based on the fact that Sky Go is incompatible with HDMI cables and doesn’t allow screenshotting, many would assume that the app wouldn’t work with casting devices, either. But, there is a workaround for Chromecast users.
- Firstly, open the Sky Go app on your computer.
- Ensure that Google Chrome is installed on your computer and that the Sky Go launcher is up to date.
- To cast to a Chromecast, pick something to watch on your Sky Go via the app.
- Open Google Chrome and select the ‘Google Cast’ option (this is in the top right-hand corner of the browser page) which should show a drop-down of the available devices in your home.
- Select the option under ‘sources’ to cast the ‘entire desktop’ which is the option to go for rather than just casting your current tab.
Which other devices can I watch Sky Go on?
Sky Go is a great app which comes along with any Sky TV subscription package. The app can be downloaded on both iOS and Android mobile devices.
Bigger devices such as an Android TV support the Sky Go app as well as laptops, PCs and Chromebooks.
The main issue that Sky Go customers have had is getting the content onto a bigger screen. Without HDMI capabilities, for now, viewers will have to watch on smaller screens.
