Watching Sky Go outside UK

Unfortunately for users outside UK, the service remains unavailable. Due to licensing constraints the Sky company has to restrict its contents within your country location.

The blocking system analyzes your IP and is able to determine your precise location. If it turns out that you aren’t a UK resident, the contents are blocked.

The VPN remains one of the best solutions to bypass this kind of restrictions. See our dedicated posts below for more informations.
