Sky has increased the viewing options available on the move by launching another 14 channels on its Sky Go service.

The entertainment channels will be viewable across the full range of Sky Go-compatible devices, allowing users to enjoy content on their PCs, laptops, tablets, consoles and smartphones.

Individual customers can access content in line with their main Sky subscription - so if you pay for Sky Sports or Sky Movies, these channels are also available online.

There are now up to 57 different channels available on Sky Go - with 40 entertainment channels sitting alongside six Sky Sports and 11 Sky Movies channels - plus a host of on-demand content.

The new channel additions offer access to a host of popular TV shows on Sky Go, including MTV's 'Geordie Shore', Dave's 'Red Dwarf X' and 'Storage Hunters', Discovery's 'Bear Grylls: Escape From Hell' and 'David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities' on Eden.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s Brand Director of TV Products, claimed the Sky Go service "has gone from strength to strength" since it launched in July 2011.

It now attracts more than three million unique users every quarter, he explained.

"The addition of these new channels is part of our continued commitment to provide our customers with a great TV experience whenever and wherever they want it, all at no extra cost," Mr Bradley-Jones stated.

"Customers now have even more choice and flexibility whether they want to watch TV Box Sets, live Barclays Premier League football, the latest blockbusters from Sky Movies or awarding-winning drama from a wider range of entertainment channels."

Sky noted that its Sky Go Extra service - where customers pay £5 per month to be able to access Sky Go on four connected devices rather than two - is proving popular with users.

Some 219,000 people upgraded to the new service in Q3 2013, allowing them to download shows and movies across a greater number of different connected devices.
