Why can I not watch Sky Sports Racing on TV Go

Joining in



I can watch all the other Sky Sports channels on my Ipad through the Sky Sports App but I cannot watch the Sky Sports Racing it says

"Watch on TV"

"This channel does not support streaming to this device. However you may be able to watch it on your TV Box"

Is there anyway I can get this channel On The Go?

I notice that a few of the other channels on my Virgin TV GO are the same.  Is there any way around this?


Thanks for your help

Hi @hunter365 

I'm afraid Sky Sports Racing has never been made available to VM apart from on the TV set top boxes.

They either want too much money for it, or are keeping it as a USP.

Not all channels are available on TVGO, although the majority are. This is due to the broadcasters. Even BBC  don't allow their channels to be shown using VM's apps, you need to download and use the iPlayer.

I don't work for Virgin Media.
