    SKY GO on a Virtual Machine


    Hi folks

    anybody here managed to get SKY GO up and running on a Windows Virtual Machine.

    I'm bashing my head against a brick wall here.

    Netflix, BBC Iplayer and Amazon prime all work perfectly so what's with SKY. - Even BT sports works fine on a VM.

    Once Netflix / Amazon can distribute the equivalent of SKY SPORTS I'll ditch the whole SKY package -- seems they are still stuck in "The Dinosaur Age" --for example who needs Silverlight and IE 11 to get the wretched thing to work in the first place.

    My English colleagues say it can't be done - but I don't give up that easily --and in any case why shouldn't it work --you are allowed 4 devices on SKY GO EXTRA -- a VM should definitely work if it has enough hardware resources which mine does.

    When I'm in the UK I've PAID for this service so it should work !!!! -- The graphics card is no problem and the DRM should work just as well on a VM as a real machine.

    Maybe Customer service is a long ago distant concept in "Blighty" these days --who knows. Unfortunately that seems to be getting true in the rest of the planet as well -- although a topic for another Forum. !!!!

    Strange thing is --works fine from an android phone or tablet - which AFAIK don't use Sliverlight.

    Cheers

    insider programs on a virtual machine

    If your computer lacks VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration it cannot run virtual machines.

    Not only is it possible, it's a great idea.

    That's exactly what I do. My Insider's builds of Windows 10 run in a virtual machine. The thing to remember is that as far as Windows activation is concerned, a virtual machine is just like another computer, so you are supposed to get a license for the VM.
    I wouldn't worry about, because this is not going to be your 'real' copy of Windows 10.
