To watch Sky on a different Xbox 360 console, you must first remove the old console from the list of registered devices on the Sky website, then select Sky from the TV & Movies channel on the new console. Here’s how:
Sky Go uses its own parental control settings. You edit these on the Sky Go website.
If the Xbox 360 console safety setting is set to block access to Xbox LIVE, then the console prompts you for the Xbox console pass code as soon as you launch the Sky application.
Note Microsoft does not control Sky Go parental settings, and Xbox Support cannot help you with these settings. If Sky Go parental controls are not restricting content as expected, call Sky Support at 08442 411 599 or visit the Sky Go website.
