      It is coming soon. There is an app available, if you can find it, but it won't work at the moment. They are still testing.

      It came to Apple first because they have a very limited line of products that they needed to test the app on. They just set a minimum level (3rd gen and above I think) then got it working on the handful of devices. Android runs on so many different hardware configurations that it will take a while longer to sort. There will still be a minimum requirement for it to work. Plus I think they wanted to get it working on Honeycomb first.

      Perfect answer. However as Android outsells Apple in the UK it seems Sky are missing an opportunity whilst they delay launch of an Android version. The Beeb also have the same problem with iPlayer on Android devices but that is a much longer running saga with the BBC showing definite bias in favour of Apple. So much for the Beeb and platform neutrality.
