      Re: sky go on a Android tv box?

      If there is a Sky Go app for Android in the Google Play store when (but it doesn't appear when the store is viewed on the device), there's probably a way to sideload it to the device - but whether or not it will work on the device is another matter.

      These apps used to work on Android TV boxes but they don't anymore.
      There were old versions floating about that did work for a while but they disabled them.

      Really, they should work if you have a non-rooted box and a Sky Go Extra subscription, but that isn't the case.

      They should really build a Kodi add-on for Sky Go (to reduce piracy, they should broaden support) since the next version Kodi 18 (Leia) will support DRM'd Netflix on devices supporting Google Widevine like the WeTek Play 2 or Xiaomi Mi box. [I have a Play 2].
      Please note the views and recommendations in my posts are my own and in no way reflect the views of Sky

      I was about to ask the same question. Makes you wonder why not allow it, when i/you can use Sky Go from a pc (Windows) hooked up to the tv, with a valid account.

      I'm sure that if there was a way to prevent an external monitor from being used with Sky Go's software for PCs then Sky would have implemented it.
