How to fix the Sky Go error on your MacBook

The first thing to try is to uninstall the Sky Go app, you can do this by going into the App Store, finding the Sky Go app and clicking uninstall, then simply reinstall the app and try loading up the player again.

If you’re using a Windows laptop you may be experiencing error code 1304, too.

In the same vein as the MacBook steps, firstly try uninstalling the Sky Go app by simply right-clicking the Sky Go icon and selecting “uninstall”. You can then reinstall the application to see if it works.

Drivers not being updated could be a big part of why the app is not working and could lead to worse computer performance overall.

To update your drivers, open the Start Menu, search for “Device Manager” and click the top result. Double-click the category “Video Card” and “Applications”. Right-click the device, and select the “Update Driver” option.

If you’re still experiencing the error and have a Sky Q system, with your Sky Q remote control, go to “Settings”, “Status” and go to “Watch via Sky Q app” and click on “Reactivate.”
