The reception has been problematic for a few days.

The message says that there is a problem with the satellite signal. Can I watch via WiFi instead? I particularly want to watch a playoff game

Short summary:

  1. Open your web browser on your MacBook.
  2. Go to the Sky Sports website (https://www.skysports.com/watch).
  3. Click on the "Sign In" button located at the top-right corner of the screen.
  4. Sign in with your Sky subscription account.
  5. Once signed in, go to the following link: https://www.skysports.com/football/salford-city-vs-stockport-county/live/482293
  6. On that page, you should be able to view the game live when it starts.

Hello, thank you for using Howly.
Can you please specify both the brand and the model of the device you want to watch it from?

if I use WiFi, I would use my Apple MacBook

And what game and on which channel/service do you want to see?

Salford v Stockport, I think it’s on sky sports main event?


Do you have a Sky subscription?
