stream 100 live Sky channels and on-demand box sets

The Sky Go app is now available for download on Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K devices. Millions of UK Sky customers have been anxiously waiting for this to happen for years.

Sky (parent company Comcast, which also launched the similar tvOS Xfinity Stream app in the US last month) is the UK’s biggest premium TV provider. The Sky Go app now makes it possible to use the Apple TV instead of needing the cable box, streaming live channels over the internet at home and (as the name suggests) on the go.

Until now, Sky Go was available on Apple’s mobile devices like iPhone and iPad. But obviously the most natural location was the Apple TV box.

Somewhat confusingly, the Sky Go app on Apple TV+ can only be used by Sky Q Multiscreen or Sky Glass Whole Home customers. That’s somewhat disappointing for customers who bought Sky Go as an add-on to use on their mobile devices, and would naturally expect this to extend to Apple TV.

Not all channels available on the Sky decoder are available through the Go app, but many are. In total, you can live stream more than 100 channels and catch up on demand box sets of the best series.

If the customer has a Sky Cinema package, you can also stream those cinema channels through the Sky Go app. Similar, stream sports channels for the Premier League, cricket and more with a Sky Sports subscription.

The Sky Go interface on Apple TV includes an EPG that resembles what users have come to expect from Sky, with the familiar blue and white theme.

Sky Go is now available as a free download from the App Store.
