Virgin TV Go has never offered direct access to Sky Sports outwith SS-News & SS-Mix. For the chargeable Sky Sports channels, TV Go has just provided a shortcut to the Sky Sports app - you then use the "VM UK" login to gain access.
On the Sky Sports app login screen, are you sure you're selecting "Virgin Media UK" just below the text-entry field on the LHS?
