      Using Sky Go on another connection

      Hi

      Will it be possible for my brother, (who subscribes to Sky HD and therefore gets Sky F1), to watch the F1 race here on my PC, (using sky go) at the weekend (he wont have access to his own tv at the time).

      thanks
      joe

      If your brother has already registered a PC or Laptop to use Sky Go, then this will need to be removed first from your brother's account.

      Otherwise you might have a little fun if you PC has been used to access Sky Go under your account name, but you should be able to watch it.

      Thanks. He definitely wont have it registered on his, but I'll make sure I unregister mine from my account first. Was also a bit concerned there might be something breaking sky T&C by doing this (as genuine as the need is)?.

      I am sure that if you admitted to some one at Sky in an official capacity, there might be an issue.

      Should your brother find out, unless you have asked him, then he might have even more of an issue

      Provided he signs in with his own username and password there will not be a problem. You are allowed to view on two devices.

      Re: Using Sky Go on another connection

      This thread seems to be the straightest answer I can find, by can I clarify that letting someone else use your sky go would be against the terms and conditions? Further, how would they know and what sort of punishments could they dole out? I can't seem to find any tales of anyone getting in to trouble

      I have heard that a lot of University Students use Sky Go to watch Sky TV whilst they are away from home. There is nothing technically wrong with this.

      Should Sky find out that someone is abusing their access to Sky Go, then I guess they could just close your account and stop you from watching any subscription channels.

      If you suspect that someone is abusing your trust and has managed to use your account to watch Sky Go, then you can easily change your password.

      Scubbie,
      I thought that was the idea of Sky Go, to be able to use it when you are not at home, you need a valid account to be able to watch sky go and so if say I gave my grandson access to it then surely that's ok and doesn't abuse the T&C of it. The only thing I can see from that is you are them down to 1 device.
      More than likely I've got this all wrong

      No, I'd say you've got it about right!

      As far as I am concerned, this would be acceptable usage too.

      The person viewing Sky Go needs to use a Sky ID & password associated with your account. Since they have this, there must be some form of consent going on.
