    Sky Go is an application that allows you to watch sporting events, news, movies, shows, entertainment and much more. Sky Go is available for MAC, Windows, Xbox, PlayStation, iPhone and iPad. This is a subscription-based service and you must have a valid username and password to use the application. 


    The Sky Go app doesn't support Chromecast, and as a result, you can't cast it directly from the app. You can still mirror your phone or use the web version of Sky Go and stream it using Chrome.
