Re: Can’t access sky sports via Virgin TV Go

Only SkySports News and SkySports Mix are available via the TV Go app.

If you download the Sky Sports app you can log in with your VM account and watch the sports from there.

Open the Sky Sports app >

Click the hamburger icon in top right corner >

Click the Sign in with Virgin TV UK icon > enter your VM email address and password > complete the captcha 

Click on Live TV at the bottom of the screen and then select the Sky Sports channel you want to watch

Not surprised.  You need the Sky Sports app not the Sky Go app. Sign in as already advised.

Hi again Adrian,

If you have the Sky Sports HD subscription with VM then you should be able to log into the Sky Sports app and view the channels by doing the following.
