Do you need XBox live for Sky Go on Xbox one S?

Found 11th Jan
My son had a XBox One S for Christmas and we have downloaded the TV from Sky app. I can log in however can't watch anything on there - it comes up with 0 episodes (even though it shows they are available on the ipad)
The sky package has multiscreen on it but not sky go extra
Do you need XBox live for this as well?!?
Thanks in advance


Don't you need Sky Go Extra to watch on a games console?

You need a Sky Go Extra subscription.

You will need a free trial to download the app onto the xbox

You get sky go extra as a multiroom customer. It may just need activating on my sky.

​No you don't.

XBox Live definitely not required. My subscription has run out but I still managed to watch the NFL wild card games last weekend. As others have intimated, you need SKY Go.

I thought that multiform was the same access as Extra. There is room to add another device on the account. I can log in with email and password but can't watch anything. It doesn't seem to register to the account - which is why I wondered if you needed xbox Live?

Nope you don't need live.
