How to get Sky go on Roku

Are you burned out trying to watch Sky Go on Roku TV?

If so, it’s impossible to get Sky Go app on Roku device because there’s no dedicated channel App on Roku that you can install and use.

Instead, you need to use your Android, iOS, Windows PC, or Mac to Cast the screen to your Roku TV by using screen mirroring or airplay feature.

Now, to know exactly what to do and what devices do not require any additional steps to watch sky go, let’s get started 

Do you know about Sky Go?

Sky Go is a streaming service where you can watch live streaming, TV shows, sports, sky news, and so on your Windows laptop, Mac, Android, iPhone, or iPad with the help of Sky Go App.

This service is from Sky Group and is available for free for those who have subscribed to Sky TV.

If you want to get the most out of Sky Go movies, the latest news, and on-demand sports, you’ll need to get a subscription to Sky TV that includes your favorite content or Channel you want to watch (which I walked below)

In any case, if you lack a strong internet connection, worry not as you can access the Sky Go content offline.

Sky Go subscription cost 

If you are a Sky TV subscriber, you won’t need to do anything, just get a mug with Coca-Cola and enjoy watching sports, movies, or whatever you prefer.

On the other hand, if you don’t have a subscription to Sky TV, you probably need to get one to watch Sky Go on Roku TV.

Below I have given a breakdown of its plans. Since Sky TV always updates its subscription packages, you can also take a sneak peek at its official website.

What are Sky Go Extra and Sky Go NZ?

Sky Go Extra provides an extra boost to your ordinary Sky Go package, such as it lets us stream live TV from phones, tablets, laptops, Xbox, and PlayStation.

Additionally, Sky Q customers can record and download their beloved shows, and movies by setting up the box, as a result, they won’t miss anything.

Sky Go NZ is a streaming service similar to Sky Go, but it’s dedicated only to New Zealand customers. If you are from New Zealand, you can download and install Sky Go NZ app on your Apple or Android device and get access to all content available on it.
