sky go redesign

Sky Go, Sky's mobile TV service, is being redesigned in the UK and Ireland.

The new lick of paint will be applied from this week. Changes include a new home page for the mobile app and web service.

Later in the year, it will gain new features. Sky won't say what these are, but they will apparently make the app more intuitive by "surfacing more shows, sports and movies".

In other words, it should be better at recommending what to watch and serving up those recommendations.

These changes are likely to tie in to Sky Q, Sky's next-gen set-top box. As well as showing films and TV shows in 4K (a resolution with four times as many pixels as standard high definition), Sky Q has a new section called My Q, which brings together everything you've been watching.

Michele Swaine, director of product development, said: "Both the redesign rolling out today and brilliant new features coming later this year are all part of our commitment to making finding the best TV brilliantly simple. So grab your phone or tablet, log in, and enjoy your favourite TV wherever you are."

The new home page is rolling out today for users of Android phones and anyone accessing it through a web browser. It will come to the iPhone app in February.

Sky Go lets you watch TV on your phone, tablet or laptop. Though it's only available to Sky subscribers.
