Sky Go update incoming for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 glitch

Sky has acknowledged problems are being experienced by Samsung Galaxy Note 3 users trying to run the Sky Go app and has pledged address the issue with a fix.

Earlier this month, the broadcaster announced that the on-demand TV application is now compatible with the Note 3, along with a slew of other Android smartphones and tablets.

However, it subsequently emerged that in fact some Note 3 models did not support the service, which enables Sky customers to watch its output on mobile devices.

It's thought that the problem applies to the LTE variant of the handset, which was tellingly absent from the list of devices that Sky announced had come on board.

The good news is that a fix is on the way that means that all Note 3 users will be able to enjoy on-the-go sports, movies and whathaveyou.
