With the series level at 1-1, there’s plenty at stake at London’s Oval as England look to take a lead into the fourth and final Test next weekend at Old Trafford.

Fortunately, it’s easy to live stream the action your PC, phone, tablet or laptop – and if you’re already a Sky Sports subscriber, free as well!

There’s a dizzying array of Sky apps available for mobile devices and computers that Sky Sports subscribers can take advantage of, but the one we’d recommend is Sky Go, which is available for Android and iOS and boasts the best UI to our eye.

Sky Sports subscribers simply need to download the app, sign in to their account, and then navigate to one of Sky’s two new-brand Sports channels – coverage is live from 10:30am BST on Sky Sports Cricket and from 10:55am on Sky Sports Main Event.

The first ball is due to be bowled at 11am BST (6am ET) and the action will run until dusk.

Here are some quick links to help you get started with Sky Go:

  • Download Sky Go for iOS here
  • Download Sky Go for Android here
  • Download Sky Go for PC here

Don’t have a Sky Subscription? Fear not, as buying a week’s Sky Sports Pass from Sky’s NOW TV streaming service will let you stream all the cricket this weekend. It costs just £10.99 and is much better value than the £6.99 Day Pass given the nature of Test cricket.

That’s all there is to it, enjoy the Third England vs South Africa Test live!
