Because it's not a supported device for Sky Sports streaming.

Those channels require an app to be installed for playback and there isn't one for a Chromebook.

Re: Sky sports live on chromebook

I have been using the Sky Sports app on my Chromebook for 18 months faultlessly. I downloaded the app from Play Store with no issues. So, in my opinion, the previous answer is not entirely correct. 

It has suddenly stopped working however. This has been noted on Sky's forums.

Re: Sky sports live on chromebook

Is there any news on this issue please?

The Sky Sports app used to work on my Chromebook up to a couple of months ago, so there was no compatibility issues related to watching live TV.

I have done a bit of investigating and there are many people experiencing the same problem.
