If you missed it, late last year saw the official launch of the Sky Go app for Apple TV devices from UK premium satellite TV provider Sky. This marks the first time that Sky TV subscribers will be able to access live and on-demand Sky TV through their Apple TV set-top box since the company added Apple TV+ to its Sky Glass and Sky Q products in December.
The Sky Go app for Apple TV is scheduled to debut “in the first half of 2022,” according to a statement made by Sky last year. With the help of this app, Sky TV subscribers will be able to stream content throughout their homes in locations without a hardwired Sky or Wi-Fi Sky Q box but with an Apple TV set-top box.
The current version of Sky Go allows users to view catch-up programming from Sky channels or other broadcasters including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, TLC, and Comedy Central, to name a few. It is also accessible on the web and via the Sky Go app for the iPhone and iPad.
Sky hasn’t released any information on the features of the new Sky Go app for Apple TV, but it’s likely that functionality will be similar to that of the PlayStation and Xbox apps, which also need users to have a Sky account with Sky Go Extra in order to stream TV series and movies.
The new Sky Be app for Apple TV has no set release date, but if it comes out “in the first half of 2022,” that means it will go live before July.
