If you are in the UK, as well as a Sky TV customer, then you may be glad to hear that the Sky Go Tablet Android app is finally live in the Google Play Store. The app has been delayed a number of times, so it’s great to see it appear at last. Sky says that Sky Go Tablet is compatible with the majority of Android tablets that are 7in or larger and running Android 4.0 or later. We noticed no problems loading it onto our Xperia Tablet Z and Xperia Z Ultra. We would be surprised if older Xperia tablets such as the Xperia Tablet S weren’t supported either. Head to the Google Play Store to download Sky Go Tablet. (http://www.xperiablog.net 2013)
SkyTV, one of New Zealand’s biggest broadcasters, has followed in TVNZ’s footsteps by launching SkyGo, an iOS app that enables Sky subscribers to stream content on compatible laptops, mobiles or tablets.
The new app has been marketed by the Sky website as a tool that ensures subscribers can watch their favourite shows on ten selected channels no matter where they are, free of charge. (http://www.stoppress.co.nz 2013)
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. (http://corporate.sky.com 2012)
