Sky Go (generic banner)

From next month, Sky Go will no longer be free to access on a console. Starting July 29, you'll have to pay £5 a month to access the catch-up service from a games console.

This will follow an introductory fee of £2.50.

News of the price hike surfaced on the Sky forums.

Sky wrote to users of Sky Go: "We wanted to let you know that from 29 July you'll no longer be able to access Sky Go using your Sky Go compatible games console.

"But don't worry, you'll still be able to access Sky Go on your games console after this date if you sign up for Sky Go Extra."

Sky Go is still free on mobile phones and tablets, so many customers are outraged that Sky should charge for using it on a games console.

Sky Go is free to Sky subscribers. It lets customers watch live TV on their mobile, tablet, laptop, or games console. It also offers a host of on-demand films and TV shows.

The service is available on the Xbox 360, and is expected to land on the PS3 and PS4 later this year.
