Before getting to the heart of this tutorial and explaining, in detail, how to activate Sky Go on tablet, it will be useful to know that the service in question, which allows you to access the viewing of the packages included in your subscription also from computers and mobile devices (up to a maximum of 2 devices but not at the same time), is available free of charge for Sky customers from at least one year.
If, on the other hand, you have recently subscribed to Sky, you can still watch the contents of your subscription from your computer, smartphone and tablet by activating Sky Go Plus at the cost of 5,40 euro / month. In addition to the ability to associate up to 4 devices to your account, the Plus version of Sky Go also allows offline viewing of downloaded content (via the Download & Play) and the possibility of seeing a live program that has already started from its inception.
Having said that, if you are a Sky customer, all you have to do to activate Sky Go on your tablet is to download the Sky Fai da te app for Android tablets and iPads and then start playing a channel on Sky Go to log in with your Sky ID and enable your device to view the content included in your subscription.
If, on the other hand, you are not yet a Sky customer, I suggest you connect to the pay TV website, click on the button Create subscription and follow the instructions shown on the screen to activate a subscription by choosing the packages of your interest. In this regard, my guides on how to activate Sky and how to get Sky Go for free may be useful to you.
