Sky Go Streaming App Now Supports 25 Devices Including Nexus 4

The Sky Go app, which lets Sky TV subscribers in UK & Ireland stream on demand and live TV to their Android device, has added 14 new devices to the list of supported devices. The updated app is now compatible with both the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 7.  The update includes an improved user interface and navigation. Other devices now supported include the HTC Desire X, HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy SIII.

Sky Go is currently available on all iOS devices and the Xbox 360 so it’s nice to see it working its way through more Android handsets. If you guys can watch the Doctor Who Christmas special, The Snowmen, I will be VERY jealous.

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!
