      Sadly this is old news.

      We've known about it for over a month now.

      Sky Go will allow only two registered devices to view the channels that you have subscribed to.

      It also means that you will need to download and install yet another program.

      I believe its 7 registered devices, but only 2 can use the service at the same time (sorry if that's what you meant )

      No problem. I had thought it was only 2 items. This sounds a little better though.

      Sky Player Forums

      Hi,

      We have been waiting on this being confirmed and after speaking to the powers that be I can confirm that you WILL be able to register up to 7 devices for Sky Go and will have the facility to watch content on 2 different devices simultaneously.

      The registered devices will not have a restriction on what devices you have in regards to only 1 Xbox, you can have a combination of any 7 devices from Laptops, PCs, Tablets, iPhones, iPods, iPads, FetchTV and Xbox with Android devices in the coming months.

      Once your devices are registered you can swap between them at any point but you are limited to 2 devices streaming content at the same time.

      You can register and be emailed when Android devices are available please go to the following link and fill in your details but remember to tick the box ?Please let me know when Sky Go launches on Android?.

      Discover Sky

      Again we will keep you updated with any news or changes to the information regarding Sky Go once we have had it signed off.

      Kind regards,

      SkyPlayerHelp

      It is worth remembering that with Sky Player you can have four registered devices, but only one can view the premium or Sky 1 without being de-registered.

      Looks like it is only two devices. It's live on the desktop but not on mobile type devices yet.

      Here's what my manage devices says from my sky account:

      Manage Devices

      With Sky Go you can register up to 2 devices per household. Your devices can be any combination of PCs, Macs, iPhones or iPads.

      A new device will automatically be registered when you watch any channel on it for the first time.

      You can watch Sky TV on both of your devices at the same time.

      True that is what the current literature etc says, but have you read the latest form the Blog where that decision has been changed?
