Sky Go is finally available on select Android phones, ending a seven-month wait for owners of kits powered by Google's operating system.

Sky’s video streaming service, which has long been a fixture for iPhone and iPad owners, enables Android phone users who subscribe to Sky to watch the broadcaster’s programming live and on catch-up on their handsets.

Naturally, all Sky’s most popular channels are supported (think: Sky Sports, Sky Movies, Sky News and Sky Atlantic), as well as Sky Entertainment channels – that’s the likes of Sky 1, Sky Living and Sky Arts.

And from March, you’ll also be able to watch fast cars being driven recklessly on the soon-to-launch Sky Formula 1 channel.

Compatible handsets include the Samsung Galaxy S and its blockbuster successor the S2. HTC Desire phones – the original model and the 'S' and 'HD' variants – also support the service, as do the HTC Incredible and the Sensation.

Holly Krill, head of Sky Go, said: “We’re extremely happy to announce the roll out of Sky Go on selected Android handsets today and the arrival of the Sky Entertainment channels to mobile devices.

"We are always working to ensure that Sky customers have more ways to watch content they love, whether it’s the big Premiership game, Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Modern Family or Ruth Jones’ Stella, and this is exactly what this enhanced version of Sky Go delivers."
