With thousands of hours of On Demand content also available on any Sky Go device there is always something to enjoy.

      • HTC: Desire X, One X, One XL, One S and One V
      • Google: Nexus 4 and Nexus 7
      • Samsung: Galaxy S3 LTE, Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Note 2

      Following its launch last summer, millions of Sky TV customers have watched their favourite shows, sports and movies from Sky TV on the move with Sky Go, with 2.8 million unique users of the service in the last quarter. Entertainment and movies have proven popular to enjoy on demand, with more than 2.2 million people viewing the second series of An Idiot Abroad and 1.1 million enjoying the latest season of Game of Thrones. Sky Go has also won a number of industry awards, including ‘Digital Media Service of the Year’ at the T3 Awards in October.

      Holly Knill, Head of Sky Go, said: “As more and more smartphones and tablets come to market, the demand for Sky Go continues to increase at a phenomenal rate. We look forward to continuing to develop for as many devices as possible while at the same time innovating for the service so that it continues to raise the bar in terms of choice, flexibility and quality.”

      Good news at last - especially that the new Nexuses (Nexi?!) get such quick support this time round.

      Let's hope they can get soon get to grips properly with the ludicrous HDMI restrictions that lock out so many devices still. This should allow the app to be quickly unblocked for the millions of Android tablets out there now. And hopefully this will not take another 6 months to achieve!

      Sky will not let you use Sky Go on any rooter or jail broken device.

      I guess that they are worried that someone may hack it so that they can either play it over HDMI or copy the contents.
