Sky Go and Now TV customers can now stream to six devices
Sky TV and Now TV customers can now register to stream on six different devices, up from four devices previously.
Depending on their TV service, customers can download different apps - Now TV, or Sky Go, Sky Cinema, Sky Q and Sky Sports for Sky customers - which let them stream live and on-demand TV on devices including laptops, tablets or phones.
Previously, customers have been able to register four devices at a time, and make a change to their devices once a month. But since earlier this week, customers have been able to set up six devices for each account and swap their registered devices more often.
However, customers will still only be able to watch one or two devices at the same time, depending on their package.
What are the changes?
The changes - which came into effect on Tuesday 26 March - have increased the number of devices Sky TV and Now TV customers can register to their apps, and how often they can switch between them:
- Now TV customers can now register up to six devices. You can change a registered device three times per calendar month, and watch two devices at any one time.
- Sky TV customers using the Sky Go, Sky Cinema, Sky Q and Sky Sports apps can also register six devices.
If you have six devices registered and want to add a different device, the least used device will be automatically swapped out - but as you can swap out devices as often as you want with no limits, in practice you can flexibly switch between more than six devices.
The number of devices you can watch on at one time depends on your package. If you have the basic Sky Go app, you can only watch on one device at a time, but if you have Sky Go Extra - which usually costs an additional £5/mth but is free for Sky Q customers - you can watch on two at a time.
