How to Watch Free Sky Cable TV Channels on a PC

By Sharon Mcelwee

Sky Cable is a British cable service that allows free TV watching from your laptop when you subscribe to their service. It's easy to set up and great for those who like to watch cable but hate to waste money on it because they travel frequently. While this is a great thing for our friends across the pond, unfortunately it is not yet available in the United States (UK and Ireland only).

Step 1

Go to Sky's website and set up an account (see Resources below). To get the free TV on your PC, you must sign up for their regular cable subscription service. Once you pay for your service, you will be able to start using the free player service.

Step 2

Go to the Sky Anytime page and download the player.

Step 3

Install the player on your PC.

Step 4

Open the player. You must be connected to the Internet to use it.

Step 5

Log into your account and choose the channels you want!

Tips & Warnings
