How can I watch Sky Go with StreamLocator?

For Sky subscribers who’d like to continue watching their favourite shows when they’re outside the UK, StreamLocator provides a virtual UK location so that the Sky Go servers think that that’s precisely where you are.

With a UK location in place, all geographic restrictions are removed, and you can stream your content just as you would at home.

No complicated settings or software installation required

The brilliant thing about StreamLocator is that you don’t have to install any software or download apps to your devices to access the content you want to watch. Neither do you have to dig into your settings, updating or adding profiles to your DNS or anything else.

We wanted to make our system as simple as possible for our subscribers, so, our plug-and-play smart hub works directly with your WiFi router to cover any Internet-enabled device connecting through it.

It even covers devices and closed system devices that don’t have VPN or Smart DNS apps available. StreamLocator provides virtual locations for mobiles and tablets, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, games consoles and more.

Our smart hub ships when you sign up to our service and is incredibly straightforward to set up. It doesn’t affect your WiFi speed, it’s always on, and it manages your geo-restricted viewing automatically. You don’t even have to pick the country you need to be in.

And—unlike VPN and Smart DNS providers—there are no restrictions on how many users can connect. Every member of your household can connect to a different service in a different country if they want to, all at the same time. StreamLocator manages them all and connects them automatically.

How to watch Sky Go from outside the UK

Sky TV allows subscribers to use Sky Go throughout the EU for 37 days, but what if you’re travelling further afield, or for longer? Well, you’ll need a way of making the Sky Go servers think you’re still in the UK.

The most popular methods of getting around geographical restrictions have been VPN or Smart DNS—and now there’s StreamLocator, providing another option with a wide range of unique advantages.

How to register for Sky Go from outside the UK

Unless you sign up for Sky TV’s satellite service in the UK, you can’t register for Sky Go as a standalone service.

But all is not lost! Sky TV offers an over-the-top subscription TV service via their NOW TV platform. You can find plenty of your favourites on NOW TV, with live streaming and video-on-demand—all without a contract.

All you have to do is provide a UK location via StreamLocator, and pick the monthly package that suits you. Simple!

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Sky Go from outside the UK?

As we said earlier, if you’re within the EU, you can access Sky Go just as you would at home.

There is that time limit of 37 days, though. If you haven’t been back to the UK for a while, then your service could be stopped. If you’ve got StreamLocator plugged in, you’ll never have to worry about that, though, because the Sky Go servers will think you’ve been at home all along.

VPN and Smart DNS are fairly good options for viewing geo-blocked services outside the UK, but many of the TV providers are getting more adept at spotting these packages and blocking them. If you’re thinking of paying for a VPN, then make sure they bypass the Sky Go servers before you sign up.

Here’s another great advantage of choosing StreamLocator. We use a selection of different technologies, so, when our smart hub connects to the Sky Go servers, it automatically determines which system is the best one to use. You don’t even have to tell it which country to pick.

How to unblock Sky Go

As we said, StreamLocator is a plug-and-play system. And it’s practically that easy to get you up and running.

When you receive your StreamLocator smart hub, all you have to do is plug it into any open port of your WiFi router. Then, follow a few simple steps to activate your subscription and then switch your devices over to the new STREAMLOCATOR option in your WiFi list.

That’s it. When you go to access your overseas stream apps or websites, StreamLocator takes care of everything else for you.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Sky Go for free?

Sky Go is a free service provided by Sky TV, so if you’ve got a Sky subscription, that’s just how it remains when you connect through StreamLocator.

What is Sky Go, and how can I watch it?

Sky Go is a free service for Sky TV customers that allows their subscribers to watch an extensive range of channels and shows, live and on-demand, via mobile, desktop, or Amazon Fire TV app.

For those who don’t already know, Sky TV is the largest pay-TV broadcaster in the UK. Subscribers have access to masses of channels in every genre, from entertainment, sports, movies, and comedy, to news, documentaries, kids shows, international viewing, and everything in between.

Sky Go gives Sky subscribers the chance to check out their favourite shows on the move. With Sky Go Extra (with a small extra fee) they can download content to watch offline and access Sky Go on an additional device.

What can you watch on Sky Go? Well, almost everything that’s covered in your subscription package. There are a limited number of channels available, but it’s still quite a comprehensive list.
