It looks like we were a little premature on the news about SkyGo coming to Android and in the excitement missed that the service will not be available until sometime next month.
Sky Go on Android
Sky Go, the TV service available at no extra cost to Sky customers across PC, laptops, iPhone and iPad, will be available to download from Android Market across a selection of handsets in the next month.
Sky TV customers will be able to access all five Sky Sports channels, ESPN, Sky News and 11 Sky Movies channels in line with their subscription using the Sky Go app on a selection of Android smartphones for the first time, starting with the most popular Samsung and HTC handsets.
In the next month Sky TV customers will also be able to enjoy their favourite Sky entertainment channels on the move, significantly expanding the choice of TV on offer, starting today with the addition of Sky Atlantic to Sky Go on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch (4th generation). In the next month Sky 1, Sky Living and Sky Arts 1 will also be rolled out to Sky Go, with all three channels plus Sky Atlantic available on Android smartphones and iOs devices.
We know how much Android users have been looking forward to the launch of Sky Go on Android smartphones, and we’ve done everything we can to make sure that it has been worth waiting for; bringing you more entertainment including new programmes like Luck, Blue Bloods Season 2 and The Love Machine.
We are continuing to invest in Sky Go to bring more great entertainment and value to our customers, and we look forward to bringing more developments to the service as the year progresses.
