    Hi,
    Given an iPad for Christmas and have a query about using it when I go to Australia for 2 months. Am an avid footie
    Fan and a Sky subscriber- is it possible to access 'sky go' when I'm abroad? (Sky say not possible)
    Any advice welcomed
    Many thanks

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Sorry I can't help you there, if Sky say its not possible, wouldn't they know? I'm Australian and we are footy fans too, Go Broncos!! What Footy are you after? Is it soccer, they televise a lot of the games here on Foxtel, which is subscription TV, most hotels do have Foxtel or Austar, although they don't offer the full selection.
    Anything else you'd like to know?

    Thanks for prompt replies.
    Any recommendations for a reliable VPN? Must admit that I'm very new to this technology so any advice gratefully received as I'm keen to follow English Premier and Champions League. Foxtel not an option for length of visit.
    Thanks
    Jane
