Sky Sports Now TV for Sky Subscribers

Hi

So I am a Sky subscriber and I am also a Sky Sports subscriber. Recently Sky Sports now was added to Apple TV. Is it possible to watch these channels using your regular Sky Sports subscription or would you have to pay a separate fee?

Thanks
Ste

Hi Ste,

Thank you for getting in touch,

Regarding your query, unfortunately you are unable to use your Sky Sports subscription on the Apple TV, you would need to pay a separate fee for this.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience,

 

Jordan

I believe this is a breach of consmer rights as we pay for the channel and not the platform that the channel is available on.

 

This is like the BBC saying that we should pay another fee to watch their content on the western digital live hub.

Interesting that Airplay is blocking you from showing Sky content (to which I subscribe) via Apple TV for contractual reason yet you are able to watch the content on Apply TV as long as you are willing to pay for NowTV. Are Sky merely hiding behind this as a suitable excuse to generate more revenues or is it genuine? Lucky that BT Sport is getting more and more content and do not have these limitations.
