Free Guide - How to Use Sky Go (and other Silverlight 5+) Video on Ubuntu (and other) Linux (finally)

Found 9th Feb 2014
Sky Go wasn't compatible with Linux because Sky Go uses Microsoft Silverlight and Sky won't change this even though Silverlight is old hat (but that's another story).

Anyway lots of Linux users have been waiting a very long time for a solution and now it's finally here and working.
This guide explains how to get Sky Go working on the Linux platform.

So if you use Linux but want the use of Sky Go, don't waste your money buying Microsoft Windows use this guide instead.

Actually, I have noticed that they've stopped asking for the phone line to be plugged in whenever I have to restart my Sky+ Box, but then again, I have got the Ethernet cable plugged in round the back.

But yes, I was really annoyed that they took forever to bring Sky Go to Android, then they only allowed it on certain phones (luckily I had a Galaxy Nexus at the time), then there's the whole restricted users thing which won't let me see Sky Go on anything more than my phone and Xbox.
