Sky Go abroad?

12
Found 24th Aug 2011
My boss has a flat in Switzerland and subscribes to Sky in the UK. Does anyone know a way that he could watch Sky Go whilst overseas? I understand he'd need a UK VPN but not sure how he could go about this. Sky say there isn't a way but I wondered if anyone on here would have any knowledge of how to do this please?

No idea........ But you are correct that sky go won't work in Switzerland. I just got back a week ago.... The iPad app doesn't even load (obviously as you'd intimated because of the IP)

Sky are pretty good with protecting their channels..... But everything can be defeated.

Slingbox



Indeed, that definitely would do it..... However it's a bit expensive to buy a property in the UK just to house a sling box!

Why suscribe to sky if he didn't have a home here



The friends we visit don't have a home here...... But they subscribe to sky so they can watch it in Switzerland with their valid viewing card.

Use a UK based proxy server and watch on a PC?

Try hotspot shield on pc or laptop. It allows me to watch US only content so should work in reverse also

How would we go about this please?

Simple-download a free proxy ISP,which hides your UK ISP,when you log onto Sky Go abroad- Sky does not know where you are works fine

true blue i tried hotspot shield and sky said as it cant tell i am in uk it wouldnt show

if you had expat shield downloaded sky will work because it UK VPN !
