Sky Go is coming to Android smartphones next month, ending a punishingly long wait for the service to hit kits powered by Google’s operating system.

Until now, the application, which lets Sky subscribers stream the broadcaster’s programming on catch-up and watch live channels a la BBC iPlayer app, has been reserved for iOS gadgets.

Now, after seven months of waiting, it’s almost here for Android, with Samsung Galaxy and HTC smarties first in line for the service.

Holly Knill, Head of Sky Go, said: “Sky Go is all about helping more people watch the TV they love wherever and whenever it suits them, so I'm delighted to announce the roll out of Sky Go to Android.

“We fully appreciate how much Android users have been looking forward to the launch of Sky Go, and we’ve done everything we can to make sure that our bespoke design for Android handsets is worth waiting for.”

Sky Go offers 39 channels-worth of the company’s output on smartphones, including Sky Sports, Sky Movies, Sky 1 and ESPN.

However, it’s worth noting that you’ll only be able to watch channels on your handset that you already subscribe to via your TV package.
