      Actually this is confusing - free to NEW multiroom customers, but current ones will have to pay by the look of the link.

      'Whatever you are doing this summer we want to make it a little brighter, so from 3rd July we will be offering new Multiroom Customers Sky Go Extra for free. All you have to do is download the Sky Go App from iTunes / Google Play.

      Sky Go Extra is currently available on laptops, mobiles, selected tablets and Xbox and can be used on up to 4 devices. You can stream live programming on 2 devices at the same time and can download content on all 4 devices simultaneously allowing you to watch your favourite programme, movie or sport at a time that suits you, perfect for your summer travel or daily commute! To get the full lowdown on Sky Go Extra then check out Sky.com

      Already a Multiroom Customer? Then you can opt-in to this great offer by logging into Sky Go Extra: download content to your mobile device and watch offline

      It seems like it will be free if you have multi room and 5 if you don't.
      Sky Go Extra: Sky TV customers only. No extra cost with Sky Multiroom, otherwise 5 extra a month. 31 days’ notice to cancel. Register up to 4 Sky Go devices, concurrent viewing on two devices. Download selected Sky Go content via WiFi (Unavailable on Xbox 360). Content depends on your Sky TV package. Movies/Sports Pack(s) required to download movies/sports. Max 2 downloads per programme. Content deleted from device 48 hours after viewing starts or no later than 7 or 30 days after download depending on content.

      Re: Sky Go: Software update, more content, features & free Sky Go Extra for multiroom customers

      The small print on that page (under the Sky TV dropdown) already states:

      "Sky Go Extra: Sky TV customers only. No extra cost with Sky Multiroom, otherwise 5 extra a month. 31 days’ notice to cancel. Register up to 4 Sky Go devices, concurrent viewing on two devices. Download selected Sky Go content via WiFi (Unavailable on Xbox 360). Content depends on your Sky TV package. Movies/Sports Pack(s) required to download movies/sports. Max 2 downloads per programme. Content deleted from device 48 hours after viewing starts or no later than 7 or 30 days after download depending on content."

      And the small print under the Offers dropdown states:

      "Sky Go Extra 2 months free trial: Sky Go Extra available free for 2 months for new and existing Sky TV customers. After 2 months you will continue to receive Sky Go Extra at 5pm extra unless you call us to cancel at least 31 days before the end of the 2 month period. Offer ends 26 September 2013. Not available in conjunction with any other offer."

      So I reckon if you're a multiroom subscriber who wants Sky Go Extra and you've not already had the free 2 month trial and you're not already subscribed to it, I guess you could order it immediately without risk of incurring any charge for a few days use until it becomes free of charge (otherwise probably best wait until 3 July).

      Sky Go: Software update, more content, features & free Sky Go Extra for multiroom customers

      You would think that with Sky Entertainment Extra, Sky Movies, Sky Sports, and Fibre broadband they would supply me with Sky Go Extra for no extra cost!

      Don't forget Sky Talk

      Would be nice though given we're already giving them a not insignificant amount of money every month.

      Well I've added it. Refused to pay 5 for it after having it for free on the PC originally before they changed it. Will have Sky Go Extra on the PC and mobile. I'm very happy!
