Sky UK (Sky TV, Sky Broadband) seems to have quietly removed the beta tag from its popular sky go video streaming app for Apple TV devices, which means regular customers of their pay-TV service should now be able to download and use it.
The media giant, which has been testing the app for a few months, originally planned to launch the video streaming app for Apple TV devices during the “first semester 2022“, but it took them a little longer than expected to get it out of the gate (here). Beta testers were also told that they needed a Sky Q Multiscreen Where Sky Glass Whole House subscription to access it.
However, according to a report on 9to5mac and applepost, the Sky Go app for Apple TV is now available. But at the time of writing, we couldn’t find any announcements from Sky to confirm this, and our attempts to call the operator have so far gone unanswered.
Nonetheless, the last beta version of the app we saw was v22.7.1 on Apple’s tvOS store (here), but that switched to the v22.7.3 release candidate last night and regular customers seem to be reporting that they can now log in to use it. Don’t expect the best audio or video quality, though it should be fine for the basics. But there may still be a few bugs to iron out, so until Sky says otherwise, it’s probably best to treat this as a public beta.
