Sky Go has evolved multiple times across the years, transforming into its current form as a means to watch Sky content on the go in a nifty app package.

- Select Screen Mirroring on your iPhone/iPad/Mac and select Apple TV when it appears
- The screen on your iPhone/iPad/Mac should then be mirrored on your TV
- From here select what you want to watch on Sky Go and it’ll play on Apple TV
