In this article, I’ll guide you through the devices compatible with Sky Sports Mobile, and the requirements to get you started.

Having tried multiple devices, I’ve gathered a comprehensive list to help you find the best way to watch Sky Sports Mobile. Here’s a breakdown of the compatibility and requirements for each platform:
Apple devices (iPhone and iPad):
Sky Sports Mobile is available on iPhone and iPad, offering a seamless viewing experience for sports fans. To enjoy the action on your device, ensure that it runs on iOS/iPadOS 13.0 or later.
Sky Sports International is also accessible on your iPhone and iPad, provided they meet the exact iOS/iPadOS requirements.
Google devices (Android phone and tablet):
Android users can also enjoy Sky Sports on their smartphones and tablets. Go to the Google Play Store and download the Sky Sports App.

Apple devices (iPhone) – Score Centre/Football Score Centre:
iPhone users can stay updated with live scores and match events with the Sky Sports Score Centre/Football Score Centre App. Ensure your device runs iOS/iPadOS 13.0 or later to access this app.
Mac and Windows devices:
Sky Sports Mobile is accessible on both Mac and Windows devices. Instead of a dedicated app, users can simply visit the Sky Sports website using a browser to watch live events and access content. Windows users can also make use of the Sky Go App for an enhanced viewing experience.
Watching Sky Sports on Other Devices
You can still access Sky Sports content even if you don’t own an iOS/iPadOS or Android device. Below we’ll discuss two of the most popular streaming services offering Sky Sports access.
Watching Sky Sports on Apple TV via Sky Go App
Great news for Apple TV users! Although there isn’t a dedicated Sky Sports app for Apple TV, you can still watch Sky Sports shows using the Sky Go app. If you have an Apple TV 4K or HD Edition, you can download the Sky Go app from the store and use it to watch Sky Go on your Smart TV.
You’ll also need a Sky Multiscreen or Whole Home subscription to watch Sky Sports on Apple TV. With either of these subscriptions, you can enjoy all your favourite sports content on the big screen.
Sky Sports Channels availability on gaming consoles
As a gamer myself, I was thrilled to discover that you can watch Sky Sports Channels on gaming consoles like PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. However, it’s important to note that these consoles have no dedicated standalone app.
To watch Sky Sports on your gaming console, you’ll need one of the following subscriptions:
- Multiscreen Subscription
- Sky Go Extra
- Sky Glass with Whole Home Subscription
With any of these subscriptions, you can access the content via the console’s built-in web browser or compatible apps like Sky Go or Sky Glass.
Sky Sports on Now TV
Now TV is a great way to access Sky Sports content without any lengthy contracts. With NOW, you can enjoy all 11 Sky Sports channels with no contract or set-up costs. Plus, you get 1000 hours of sports highlights and documentaries on demand.
