Sky Go Outside The UK

Though Sky Go is currently not available outside the UK, you can trick the website into thinking that you are in the UK. It's most practical to do this is you're a citizen of The UK, and already have an account with Sky Go. You could potentially sign up for an account while you're outside The UK.

Sky Go is an online streaming site in The UK. It features sports, TV programs, news, movies and other streaming, on demand content. Some of the content featured on their service overlaps with other streaming service, and some of it is exclusive.

However, they currently block non-UK IP addresses. Your IP address is like the mailing address of your computer. That's how websites know where to send information to. When Sky Go receives a request to send information outside The UK, it refuses. This is probably due to contract terms and may help with server speeds.

It's a bit of a bum deal for members that are traveling or outside of The UK on business. Regardless of your membership level or country location, you are denied access. You need Sky Go to think you're in The UK.

This is just what VPN services do. VPN services have a network of servers located in different countries around the world. After downloading the appropriate VPN software, you can connect to any one of these servers. When you connect to a server, your data doesn't go directly to websites you want to view or stream from. It takes a detour through the VPN server. This is how you're perceived as being in a different country. Websites don't see you, they see the VPN server. When VPN servers are in The UK, you get a UK IP.

Sky Go is available for smartphones, Mac/Windows, and Xbox. To view Sky Go outside the UK on smartphones and computers is easy. They come ready to use VPN software, and you just have to install the software provided by the VPN service you choose. Xbox doesn't come with a VPN client, but you can route you're laptop to the Xbox to give it the UK IP. This process is a bit more complicated, but possible. YouTube is a great way to learn how to do this.

If you're not already a member of Sky Go, or not a UK citizen, and but want to stream British TV outside The UK, then Netflix and BBC iPlayer are also good options. There are also other streaming TV programs like Channel 4 and Demand 5 that can be accessed through a UK VPN server.
