If you’re a Sky TV customer, the content you can watch will depend on your TV package. For example, you need to pay for a Sky TV subscription to watch shows from the Sky Go app.
Got Sky Mobile but don’t have a Sky TV subscription? You can still watch content from Sky apps that don’t require a subscription, like Sky News.
Data and usage charges
Watching TV channels on the go through a Sky app in the UK won't use any data. But if you stream on demand content which contains advertising, or watch ads within some Sky apps, this might use your data allowance.
|App||Type of advert||Will it use my data?|
|Sky Go||Pre-roll ads before a live or on demand stream starts||Yes|
|Sky Go||Ads during a live stream (the adds you'd see if you watched on your TV)||No|
|Sky Go||Ads during video on demand content||Yes|
|Sky Sports / Sky News||Ads on web pages||Yes|
|Sky Sports / Sky News||Adds before video on demand content starts||Yes|
For example, 3 minutes of ads watched on Sky Go will use approximately 30MB of data.
Subject to the table above, there’s no limit to how much Sky TV you can watch without using your data, as long as you have at least 50MB of data in your allowance.
