From 1st April there will no longer be Geo blocking on the Sky Go service while holidaying in Europe. VPN's no longer required finally, only catch seems to be that there may be a limit of how long you can access the service without logging on in the UK.

From a Sky representative:

Since 26th March, you can view Sky content abroad in the same way you normally enjoy your Sky TV subscription channels when outside of your home, using your favourite Sky apps on a laptop, tablet or mobile device.

You can stream Live TV and On Demand content for up to 37 days in any EU member country, then you need to connect back up in the UK/ROI, otherwise we will block viewing on the app, but then you will be free to view in an EU member country for a further 37 days, and so on.

You can use the following Sky Apps, as you would at home in the UK and ROI Sky Go, Sky Q, Sky Kids, Sky Sports, Sky Sports Mobile TV, Sky Cinema & Now TV.

If you have any other questions please let me know.

So a vpn to switch countries every month is required to get around it.

In my own case one of my close friends in Ireland uses my Sky Go (one device) and I use the other. The fact that he logs in should be enough to keep them off my back. Hopefully.....
