Sky has brought its TV-on-the-go app to more Android smartphones, including the newest kits from Sony and Samsung.
The Sky Go application, which offers live and on-demand content from up to 49 channels, now runs on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Sony Xperia Z1, the Sony Xperia Z1 Ultra, the HTC One SV and the LG G2. The total number of Android kits that support Sky Go now stands at 45.
The delay in bringing the service to the handsets will have been caused by compatibility problems getting it to work on smartphones and tablets running new versions of Android, as well challenges ensuring that Sky Go scales correctly on devices with ever-larger dimensions.
