  1. Have tried this and does not work.
    Error message 20190005 appears and skygo will not launch
    Have unistalled, installed, used surfshark and does not work

  2. I’ve followed all the steps for the Kodi method and all worked fine, however when I try to log in to the Sky Go app in Kodi, it keeps saying login unauthorized despite the details being correct!? Help please?!

  3. Have tried both methods and no Joy. The Kodi method gets to the login page but it then says unauthorised user. I live in the UK and have a sky go account. Not sure if its because it takes me to the SKY Go New Zealand and wont let a UK account login.

  4. Had same problem as David L. Tried Kodi method but this downloads a New Zealand sky go so I couldn’t access it in uk. Guess need vpn software?

  5. I have tried both the Jodi method and the downloader, with kodi I get the account not authorised pop up, and with downloader error cod 20190005
