Sky Go hits more Android phones, adds support for Jelly Bean kits

Sky has made the Sky Go TV on-demand mobile app available for more Android devices including kits running Jelly Bean, pacifying customers annoyed that the service has until now been supported by a smattering of smartphones and tableets powered by Google’s OS.

From today, the app will work with a further 14 Android gadgets, among them the LG Nexus and Google Nexus tablet, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE edition and its Mini variant, the Galaxy Note 2 and the Sony Xperia S, Sony Xperia T and the LG 4X HD.

HTC owners will also be able to join the party, with Sky Go compatibility coming to the HTC Desire X, HTC One X, HTC One XL, HTC One S and HTC One V too.

The app enables Sky customers to watch the broadcaster’s shows live and on-demand on their smartphone and tablet.

Holly Knill, head of Sky Go, said: “As more and more smartphones and tablets come to market, the demand for Sky Go continues to increase at a phenomenal rate.

"We look forward to continuing to develop for as many devices as possible while at the same time innovating for the service so that it continues to raise the bar in terms of choice, flexibility and quality."

Sky has also updated its app for iOS kits. The revamped application now allows users of the iPad, iPhone, iPad Mini and iPod touch to access on-demand listings and the chance to set their Sky+ HD set top box to download shows remotely.
