You'll be able to download the .apk from google and install it onto the stick/box not sure how well It'll work! I tried with Virgin Tv Anywhere and didn't work at all

It won't work, though you can sideload it. It still won't work though. Sky Go won't even work on a rooted phone, never mind a device that isn't authorised at all.

That's not true. I've used Sky Go on an Amazon Fire TV in the past. The only real problems are that the interface isn't ideal for a non touch device and it will suddenly stop working when they update the app, forcing you to side load the new version again. It's just a pain. I bought an old cheap PS3 slim to put Sky Go on instead.

You can't get Sky Go to work on any Fire stick/Fire TV box or Android TV box. Even if you use Xposed Installer and RootCloak. Sky won't allow this (your're effectively getting another Sky box for free), same goes with Now TV app.

You're wrong there, I had it working on two Fire TV boxes until I decided to go for a more convenient solution. I had previously tried it on some cheap and nasty Android TV boxes where it failed, mostly giving the error you posted above.

Sky Go will work on Amazon Fire tablets and phones like it would work on any Android tablet and phone but not on any Android TV box like the fire stick and Fire TV box.

I'm saying if you tried now you wouldn't be able to, check the xda forum.

Oh I see. I hadn't realised things have changed so recently.

I'm sure it's only a matter of time till somebody finds a workaround though. They always do!
