Still Can’t Watch Sky Go on PS5 After Login?

If you have logged into your Sky account on PS5 and still can’t watch live or on-demand TV, the first thing you need to check is your Sky TV subscription.

Sky Go Extra is required for the PS5. Hence, while Sky Go will work on your phone or PC even if Sky Go Extra is not active, that is not true for consoles.

What if I have Sky Go Extra subscription but still can’t watch?

In that case, you should know it can take up to 24 hours for the subscription to activate.

Therefore, if you just recently purchased a subscription that contains the Sky Go Extra, you might need to wait up to 24 hours for the subscription to become active. During that time, you can still watch Sky Go on other supported devices (mobile phone, tablet or PC) except your console.

In addition, Sky Go doesn’t support virtual private networks (VPNs) or Ad Blockers. Hence, if you’re using any of these on your console, turn it off.

if you’re still having issues after 24 hours, then you need to contact Sky support team for help. 

NOTE: Not all shows and movies can be watched live and you’ll need the right TV package for the shows/movies you’re trying to watch.

Other Supported Devices

You can also stream Sky Go on the following devices:

  • PlayStation4
  • PCs running Windows 7 or above
  • Android devices running Android 4.4 or above
  • Macs running OS X 1.9 or above
  • Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S
  • Amazon Fire tablets running Fire OS 4.3.3 or above
