Selected Sky customers can get a free upgrade before everyone else – are you eligible?

SKY is launching a programme for customers to trial out new features before they’re rolled out to everyone else.

The broadcaster is currently looking for participants to try out its new app.


The broadcaster recently rolled Sky Go out to PlayStation 5 customers, replacing the old and now defunct app TV from SkyCredit: Sky

Sky Go is the broadcaster’s new app, which is still under development for PC and MAC Desktops.

The company officially announced Sky Go last month, having worked on the new app for several months.

Only Sky subscribers can sign up to be part of the trial and give feedback on how the feature works – or doesn’t.

“The first thing you need to do is create your profile and add all your devices,” Sky explained.

“If you are having an issue getting signed up, you can always reply to this email.

“Unfortunately, you will not be able to continue being part of this trial if you do not create a new profile as we are migrating all our trials to this new platform, so please sign up as soon as possible.

“Remember: if at any point you no longer want to take part, all you must do is reply “Opt out” and we will remove you from all our records.”

The trials site is still new, and some customers have reported finding it tricky to navigate.

However, Sky said they had passed this feedback to the relevant teams.

The broadcaster recently rolled Sky Go out to PlayStation 5 customers, replacing the old and now defunct app TV from Sky.

“This is an exciting change for anyone watching Sky TV on games consoles, which hasn’t changed since 2015,” the company said.

“We’re sure you’ll love this, and with all the new features the app will bring, you’ll be streaming in no time!”

However, Sky said it was important to note that since it upgraded the old app, users who were using it without Sky Go Extra / Whole Home / Multi-Screen are now being logged out.

“To use Sky Go on the console apps, you will need to have Sky Go Extra or Multi-Screen,” Sky explained.

“If you’ve got Sky Glass, you’ll need a Whole Home subscription.”
