How to watch Sky on PS4 and Xbox One

Somewhat confusingly, the app's not actually called Sky Go. Instead it's named TV from Sky and, as has been the case with streaming Sky TV on any video game console since June, you'll need to subscribe to Sky Go Extra or Sky Multiscreen to be able to use it, which means either an extra £5 or £11.25 a month on your Sky bill.

Once you're sorted with one or the other, download the app from the PlayStation Store and you'll be able to watch a whole bunch of channels either as they're broadcast or via catch-up, including all seven Sky Sports channels and all 11 Sky Movies channels. Provided you subscribe to them.

Fergal Gara, vice president and managing director for Sony Computer Entertainment UK, said: "The addition of TV from Sky today to the PS4 is going to delight all users of the newest, most powerful member of the PlayStation family."

Sky Go has been available on the Xbox 360 for over five years, but this is the first time a Sky TV app has been available on a Sony console. PS3 owners will have to wait a little longer though, as the TV from Sky isn't expected to arrive until early next year. There's no news yet about when it may appearing for Xbox One.

Sky Go comes with all Sky TV packages. It allows you to watch up to 65 channels live and on-demand on up to two compatible mobile phones, tablets and laptops. Sky Go Extra allows you to download films and TV programmes to watch offline and can be used with up to four compatible devices.
