      Switching Sky Go from old laptop to new.

      Hi,

      Firstly, I'm not tech savvie so if anyone is kind enough to reply please imagine you are speaking to an idiot!

      I have sky go access on my laptop quite legally and with the permission of the sky subscriber, however I plan to upgrade my laptop soon but would rather they didn't know.

      Can I de-register my old laptop and set up the facility on my new one without them being made aware of my actions?

      Thanks.

      Ever so slightly suspicious but...

      As long as you have the username and password then you can login to Sky Go, go to manage devices, and then remove the old one and add the new one by using the service on the other PC.

      There is no notification sent to anyone by you doing this.
      Someone might only notice if they were in the habit of going into Manage Devices.
