Sky Go App Available Now in the UK, Only on Select Devices

At the end of January we told you about how the British television company Sky would be bringing those folks in the UK an app for watching TV on the go. Fast forward to now and that announcement has become a reality. Like we told you before it is only available on select HTC and Samsung devices with more being supported over time. With the app you will be able to watch up to 22 live channels based on your TV subscription. They include:

  • All 4 Sky Sports channels plus Sky Sports News and ESPN
  • All 11 Sky Movies channels
  • Sky Atlantic
  • Sky 1
  • Sky Living
  • Sky Arts 1
  • Sky News

If you live in the UK, have one of these devices, and are interested in downloading this app you can follow the Market link or QR code below. Some things to keep in mind though include the fact that this doesn’t work on Ice Cream Sandwich, or tablets yet, and if you are rooted don’t bother as you will be denied access. While we don’t expect Sky to ever allow root users to use the app (until developers get a hold of the app) we do expect to see ICS support in the future. If you meet these stringent requirements then head on over to the Market to get your taste of UK television on the go. Enjoy!

    I’m using an HTC Desire HD that is rooted…I’ve been able to download and use the app with no problems…much to my surprise!

    Does not work even on a Gingerbread based stock Samsung Galaxy Note. So much for large screen HD !

    Typical this would have effectively put an end to watching sky on my laptop but a lack of “ics” compatability no tablets supported yawn they have had !ong enough. To busy locking apples ass like channel 5s gadget show.
