FAQ: Using a VPN with Sky Go

Does ExpressVPN come with a Sky Go account?

ExpressVPN does not come with a Sky Go account. To watch Sky Go, you need to be a Sky TV UK or Sky TV Italia subscriber.

Can I use my VPN to stream Sky Go on multiple devices?

Sky Go is compatible with most computers, mobile devices, and tablets, but the number of devices you may register with Sky Go for free as part of your Sky TV subscription is limited.

You can upgrade your Sky Go account to Sky Go Extra, which would allow you to enjoy Sky Go on more devices.

Can I watch Sky Go abroad?

Yes, Sky Go UK and Sky Go Italia are both available to Sky TV subscribers throughout the EU. So if you want to watch Sky Go outside the UK or Italy, you’re covered. For more information on watching Sky Go abroad, please contact Support.

Will using a VPN affect the video quality?

All VPNs have the potential to slow down your internet connection. But ExpressVPN is very fast, and most users don’t experience issues with buffering when they stream video. In fact, sometimes a VPN may be able to boost your download speeds, especially if your internet service provider (ISP) throttles bandwidth on streaming-video services.

What else can I do with ExpressVPN?

ExpressVPN works with many other streaming services, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, and more, so you can enjoy video content from all over the internet with enhanced security, privacy, and freedom.
