By the end of July an additional update to Sky Go will support the Android operating system Ice Cream Sandwich on compatible devices, as well as new devices including the Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus.
The Sky Go Android app, which launched in February on a selection of Android smartphones, offers eight sports channels including Eurosport in time for the huge summer of sport,
with highlights including the Olympics, the continuing Formula 1™ season and the start of 2012 — 2013 Barclays Premier League.
Sky Movies customers can enjoy eleven Sky Movies channels, as well as hundreds of movies on-demand including Rio and X-Men: First Class.
Beyond Android mobile devices, on-demand content from a range of channels is also available on Sky Go for PC, laptops, Xbox and iOS devices.
Holly Knill, Product Director of Sky Go, said:
With the huge and ever-growing popularity of Android devices in the UK it’s fantastic to make on-demand content from Sky Movies and Sky Entertainment available to Sky customers for the first time.
This update means customers can enjoy some of the most popular shows such as Sky Atlantic’s Mad Men, Veep and hundreds of the latest Hollywood blockbusters, whenever suits them. We hope this update to the service offers extra flexibility to Android users and the new option of on-demand viewing makes a richer experience for all Sky customers across all platforms.
