      Sky Go now live on Android

      Sky Go, the TV service available at no extra cost to Sky customers is now available to download from the Android Market to a selection of the most popular handsets including HTC Desire S and Samsung Galaxy S2, covering the majority of Android users. Sky TV customers using these smartphones can now access all five Sky Sports channels, ESPN, Sky News and 11 Sky Movies channels via the Sky Go app in line with their subscription.

      In addition, Sky TV customers can now watch their favourite Sky Entertainment channels on the move with Sky Go. Following the launch of Sky Atlantic in January, Sky 1, Sky Living and Sky Arts 1* are now also available on all compatible mobile devices, significantly expanding the choice of TV on offer on the move. The Sky Sports F1™ channel will also be introduced across all Sky Go platforms in March.

      Holly Knill, Head of Sky Go, comments: “We’re extremely happy to announce the roll out of Sky Go on selected Android handsets today and the arrival of the Sky Entertainment channels to mobile devices. We are always working to ensure that Sky customers have more ways to watch content they love, whether it’s the big Premiership game, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Modern Family or Ruth Jones’ Stella, and this is exactly what this enhanced version of Sky Go delivers.”

      It's not that good tbh, and doesn't work with ICS (which is just dumb considering half the phones it DOES run on are updating to ICS end of next month). Sky need to pull their finger out and get it working with all version of Android

      Great news.
      A bit shocked by the lack of devices supported.

      Hope somebody at XDA cracks the security on this.

      Exdee, I'm a bit of a noob with phones.
      I guess I save the file, unzip and copy contents to the phone ?
      Its a Galaxy Ace, would it work on that ?

      If you have got a barcode scanner installed on your phone scan it and it should then download the app to your phone. When it has finished downloading tap it once and it should install.
