Anyone know if the Sky Go service can be accessed on a Chromebox/Chromebook?

Can't you just go on Google Chrome browser and go on the Sky Go website from there?

Yeah I would have thought it would be that simple but you never know... wasn't sure if it might spit the dummy with Chrome OS.

Was hoping someone with a Chromebox/Chromebook could confirm.

So anyone using a Chromebox/Chromebook for the SkyGo site? Just wanna know if it works before I grab one for our 'dumb' TV.

Might have to go for a NUC instead if it's a no go.

Thanks for that! I thought maybe that was the case. Looks like it's a NUC then! :-)
