Knill, Holly

We’re delighted to announce that Sky Go is now available on a selection of Android smartphones, including the popular Samsung Galaxy and a selection of HTC handsets.

As I mentioned on this blog last month, we know Sky customers who own Android smartphones want to watch Sky Go and we hope they’ll be impressed by the bespoke design and functionality it gives them to enjoy content when and where they want.

In addition, we’re also launching three more Entertainment channels on Sky Go on mobile platforms, with Sky 1, Sky Living and Sky Arts 1 joining Sky Atlantic on Sky Go on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android.

Click on the video above to see what the Sky Go Android experience looks like, and how Sky Go sits alongside the other Sky mobile apps currently available free of charge from the Android Market.

The app seems really good at first look. However I don't like the limitation of only two devices being registered with Sky Go at any one time. For example I use my workstation (PC) to watch on a large screen monitor and my laptop when away from home in a hotel for example, my work laptop to catch up with things durig lunch hour and would now use my phone when on the move. The two device limitation means I can only use two of them and once I have made a change cannot make another one for a month! I understand you need to limit devices to avoid people sharing accounts and mis-using the system but I think a 4 device limit, as it was originally with Sky's online viewing via Sky Player, would be far more practicable.

Why isn't SkyGo available on Android 4. It obviously isn't available for the superb ASUS Transformer Prime. Shame on Sky!

As soon as I heard it was available on Android, I pulled up the Android Marketplace to download it. Then I realised it wasn't available on my Samsung Google Nexus S :( Hopefully the app will become available on most Android phones that are capable of running it.

Great but now I have to choose between losing my media centre PC or my laptop. Sky on a phone is nice but the other two win hands down so I can't use it. Can't you work it out so you can add to a mobile device too?

When will Sky Go be available for Android's ICS 4.0, and also why is it not availabe on the TF201 ASUS Transformer Prime. I realise in you article you mention the Samsung Galaxy. For a company that constantly discusses how they are technologically advanced you seem to be more technologically biased and blind. To produce something only for Apple is never good business. But to the n include android but ignore some of the most popular, best-selling and powerful ndroid devices on the planet today is just insane! You have reduced your market and have yet to include any indication of when this will become available?? It amazes me that you have not been able to do this and yet feel it is successful. What it isis ailenating your consumer base whilst remomoving confidence in your products during an economical fragile time. I can only assume your shareholders have better information abotut the future than the people paying for your services.

Is there any intention of providing ICS support and inclusion for some other tablet devices, such as the ASUS TF201 Transformer Prime (which is the fastest selling tablet world-wide to this date - and the most powerful being Quad Core) - it would be a shame not to include these devices soon. Thanks!

Just updated the firmware on my phone, no more Sky Go. No support for my ICS tablet either. Not a lot of use in the future if this is not sorted soon.

Having both a Motorola XOOM and a Samsung Galaxy note isn't it about time sky got there act together and looked to other manufacturers other than apple in supplying Sky go availability !! I might be wrong but I think the Android market now tops apple.

I am a Sony Experia S and Sky Go user and would like to see them work together. The screen was a major reason for my buying the Sony Experia S and thus I am disappionted that I cannot view my purchased Sky content on it.
