Apps on Sky Platforms

You can still access the apps on your Sky devices if you order and set-up the app account with someone else (for example, the app provider).

  • If you have any third party subscriptions (excluding apps) that you don't pay for through Sky, but view on your current Sky platform, you’ll no longer be able to view these on the Streaming TV platform. It’s your responsibility to cancel billing with that third party provider if you want to cease those services.

  • If you have Disney+ which you pay for through Sky, this won’t automatically be transferred to your Sky Glass subscription and will be cancelled alongside your Sky Q/Sky+ service. If you want to continue to use this service, you’ll need to sign up with Disney+ directly.
