Sky Sports app

Hi, i was just wondering how many devices can watch Sky Sports on the app at one time? I know you can have 6 devices registered but for some reason it seems I cant watch it on more than one device at any one time?

E.g. if I want to watch football, my dad wants to watch golf and my brother wants to watch F1 on three devices at the same time, we cant?

Cheers

Re: Sky Sports app

Hello

I am afraid the limit for Sky is only one device can watch at a time, This is a limit set by Sky.

Re: Sky Sports app

Sky only allow one concurrent stream for their channels i.e. one device out of the six can watch at any one time.

That apply to the Sky Sports, Sky Cinema and TV Go apps.

Re: Sky Sports app

Do you know if there is a way you can increase this limit with Sky at all? Has this always been the case? I could have sworn we used to be able to watch it on 2 previously.

Cheers

Re: Sky Sports app

It was changed last year when the number of devices you could register increased

There is no way to change it at the moment, and it would have to an agreement between Virgin Media and Sky to allow it.
