Sky users now have a new way to stream the company’s content to their home televisions via satellite. Almost a year after it was first announced, the Sky Go service is finally available to download and use on Apple TV devices.
This means millions of consumers can now plug these popular mini set-top boxes into any TV they own, with shows, movies and sports streaming to the big screen over a broadband connection.
The update was originally supposed to be available at the beginning of the year, but things took longer than Sky expected.
Anyone looking to take advantage of this update simply fires up their Apple TV box, then goes to the App Store and uses the search function to find Sky Go.
Once the app is downloaded, standard Sky Go login details and passwords are required to start working.

It’s worth remembering that using Sky Go on Apple TV counts as one of six devices that can be used on that service.
Once everything is ready, many of the most popular shows, movies and sports will be available to watch on the big screen.
You can watch live TV and access hours of content and on-demand box sets.
This update will be particularly useful for anyone going on holiday this summer, as it means they can take their Apple TV with them and access all their favorite Sky channels on another TV away from home.
Now, before you get too excited about this change, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Firstly, it appears that not all Sky customers have access to the Go app on Apple TV, with reports suggesting that only those with Sky Q Multiscreen or Sky Glass Whole Home will be able to connect.
Although more than 100 channels have been launched, it seems that not all channels are available through the Apple TV app.
The news of this Apple TV update comes as Sky has launched a new channel called Sky Sci-Fi.
The service replaces the Syfy channel and offers tons of out-of-this-world content, including movies like the Day of the Dead zombie series, Bullet Train Down, Thor: God of Thunder, and Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Speaking about the channel update, Sai Bennett, managing director of content Sky UK and Ireland, said, “From space adventure to futuristic fantasy, Sky Science will join a host of genre brands launched this year and offer a whole new universe for viewers to explore.
