Wondering can you get Sky Go on Xbox? Well, it’s easy but you need to know what to do! Sky Go is available for Xbox consoles including XboxOne and Xbox X/S.
However, activating your service requires a Sky TV subscription and accepting their terms of service.
This means that if you’re activating your Sky Go for the first time, you would need to undertake extra steps!
To get Sky Go on your Xbox, download the app from the Microsoft Store, sign into your Sky account, and follow the terms of service using a secondary device if necessary.
Let’s unwrap everything!
Can You Get Sky Go on Xbox One S/X?
Yes, Sky Go is available in the Microsoft Store on your Xbox One/X/S model, but the app will only show up if you’re located within the United Kingdom.
If you’re not able to find the Sky Go app, then you need to verify that there is no enabled VPN or a Proxy on your internet network.
Sky Go on Xbox Requirements!
There are a few requirements that you need to verify before you begin with the Sky Go app activation process.
So, verify that you have all of the following:
- Xbox One, Xbox S or the X model.
- Available Xbox storage of 250MB.
- A Sky TV package subscription.
- Sky ID Username and Password.
- Internet speed of at least 2 Mbps.
If you have all of the aforementioned requirements, then you’re ready to start streaming Sky Go on your Xbox.
We’ll discuss the requirements in depth, so let’s next jump straight into the steps!
How to Get Sky Go on Xbox in 4 Easy Steps!
The guide below will help anyone whether it’s an existing or a new Sky TV customer with steps that include everything you need to know.
We recommend following the guide consecutively!
1. Verify All of the Requirements!
The first step to getting Sky Go on your Xbox is to verify that you cover the requirements.
Here we’ll show you quick steps on how to check whether you’re ready or not for Sky Go on your Xbox!
Know the Xbox Console Model:
To quickly find out which Xbox console model you’ve got, simply check for a sticker on the sides or on the bottom of the machine.
You should see the exact model number of your Xbox console.
Check Xbox Available Storage:
To check the available storage of your Xbox, press the Xbox button on the controller and go to “Profile & System”.
Then navigate to “Settings”, then “System” and then enter “Storage”.
Verify Your Sky TV Subscription:
To install Sky Go on your Xbox, you need to verify that you either have the Sky Go Extra or the Sky Streaming TV Whole Home subscription.
To do so, navigate to the Sky Sign-In, and go to your account to verify that your subscription is active and ongoing.
Test Internet Connection Speed:
Finally, you need to verify that your internet speed is at least 2 Mbps or more.
There is an easy way to perform a free speed test online, so you can verify no Sky Go streaming interruptions.
2. Accept the Sky Terms of Service
Note: If you already have an activated Sky Go account, skip this step!
Before downloading the Sky Go on your Xbox, it’s very important to already have a Sky Go account, activated on a different device.
For this purpose, you can use a Mobile, Apple TV or a Laptop/Computer. You need to verify that you can sign in using your Sky ID and password.
Then, you need to download the Sky Go app on your secondary device (not your Xbox).
We recommend using mobile since the setup process happens very quickly.
The Sky Go app is available in the App Store, Google Play Store and for Windows, OSX as well as Amazon Fire.
Note: Upon signing in to Sky Go, you’ll be prompted to accept their terms of service!
3. Download Sky Go on Your Xbox!
When everything up to this point is correct, you should now be eligible to download and use the Sky Go streaming app on your Xbox.
So, if you’re unfamiliar how to download, follow the steps:
- Using the controller enter the Microsoft Store.
- Then, locate Sky Go, and press the “A” button.
- Select the destination storage tab accordingly.
- Highlight and select the “Install” button to begin.
Typically, this app is small in size and should install very quickly on your Xbox.
However, in case of any issues, you might have to double-check whether your internet connection is working well.
Note: The Sky Go application should show up among your Xbox games!
4. Sign-Into Sky Go on Your Xbox!
The final step would be to locate, open Sky Go and sign into your Sky account.
You need to use the same Sky account credentials that you’ve used to activate your Sky Go service after getting the Sky TV subscription.
Signing in with any other Sky account, without an activated Sky TV subscription will result in an inability to stream content on your Xbox.
Your account would then be remembered and as long as your Sky TV subscription is ongoing you will have access to the Sky Go app on your Xbox.
Tip: Keep the Sky Go app up to date on your Xbox for optimal performance!
How to Setup Sky TV Subscription to Get Sky Go?
To be able to stream Sky Go on any device, you need a Sky TV subscription so here we’ll share with you exactly what you need to do.
Assuming that you need Sky Go on your Xbox, the Sky TV subscription will also enable you to stream on mobile, laptop/computer, Apple TV and more.
I am not a Sky Customer Yet:
If you’re not a Sky customer in any variety, then you need to create a Sky account first.
Don’t forget that Sky TV is only available in the UK, so if you’re outside the United Kingdom, you will need to establish a VPN connection in order to connect to a British server and watch Sky Go.
To create a Sky registration, go to Setup Sky ID.
Then select “Watch Content Only”, and tap on the “Sign Up” button from the sign-in form on the right of the screen.
Then, provide the necessary information to create a Sky TV registration.
Tip: We recommend using Atlas VPN for accessing Sky Go from outside the UK!
I am an Existing Sky Customer:
If you already have a Sky ID set up and you’re able to sign into your Sky account, then you only need to subscribe for a service.
To stream Sky Go on Xbox you either need the Sky Streaming TV Whole Home or the Sky Go Extra subscription.
You need to go to My Sky, select your subscription plan and verify that your payment transaction went through.
This means that your Sky TV service will shortly be activated, and only then you’ll be able to watch Sky from your Xbox, mobile, computer/laptop, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV.
