How can I stream SkyGo to my TV?

Found 24th Apr 2015
So I've got a jailbroken ipad and iphone that I cant use and for the xbox 360 you need a skygo extra subscription I dont really want to pay for. Also I dont think I can use my laptop via HDMI as its blocked. Is there any other way I can stream Skygo? I dont mind buying an Apple TV or an android streaming box, if it works! Thanks!

you can't stream sky go.
Do you need skygo? Why not put xbmc/kodi on your iPad, then buy a lightning cable

Ah, I see - in which case I don't think you can do it. Although if anyone knows a way. I'd be interested too
The ONLY way i can think of is using an android device and screen mirroring to chromecast, though ive never done it.

Yeah! I always thought there was some kind of android box I could use!
you can stream other things like youtube and stuff but with sky you cannot stream anything to anywhere. never.

I wanted to watch sky go but there is no way around it. for the price of a apple tv though you can get around 10 months of sky go extra.
Ring sky and get sky go for no additional cost like we did

Yes they do, they can't block it or it wouldn't work on a desktop PC and it's clearly advertised as such. If it's not working you're having HDCP issues, most likely driver related.

cdmi would work but i think he means the hdmi port on his laptop is blocked, some are like that.

Sky go is free, Sky go extra needs multiroom subscription.

I used tio this all the time, I have an Toshiba netbook (NB100) which I use with the d-sub cable. Unlike HDMI it easily hooked up to flat screens, and not blocked; Google 'analogue hole'.

Downsides; quality isn't as good but it's good enough, it's not a neat solution with cables everywhere (picture, audio to amp and the power brick), and the laptop is sluggish even with max ram.

Now I have my PS4 connected, far easier and simpler. Still wish the Pi could work though.....

Oh, and as suggested earlier, Sky Go is free for my MiL following a simple phone call.
Do you know someone with sky who would let you log in to their's.
I gave my log in to a friend to use on his Xbox all worked fine.
Having played with several streaming methods of getting Android and IOS onto the TV, IMHO, a cable to HDMI port is very much the most reliable way to go. Literally plug in and play.

Sky go doesn't work on jailbroken devices

Good job you don't have to jailbreak a computer then.

I'm genuinely confused if you lot are morons or just a bit slow. They can't block the video out on a laptop/PC, because if they did it would be impossible to use SkyGo on a desktop, which it clearly can be used on (it even says so on the Sky site). If it doesn't work you have driver/software issues, not because it's blocked.
hey badass! They're right!
Something has been added on Silverlight 5.1 therefore it detects the hdmi connection to a tv and blocks Sky Go.
fix1 - You can go back to Silverlight 5.0
fix2 (not tested) - connect the hdmi before switching the laptop on. Select extended screen. Launch sky go with Firefox.
laptop with vga output works hdmi doesn't nor does chrome cast
