Sky Go adds Channel 5, ITVBe and Eurosport 2


Sky Go now has 70 channels

BSkyB has added a few new channels to its Sky Go streaming platform Sky Go for desktop and mobile.

Sky subscribers can now access Channel 5, 5* and 5 USA, unlocking programming like Gotham, TOWIE, The Mentalist, Big Brother and Neighbours.

The new and rather obnoxious ITVBe channel has also been added to the streaming roster, while British Eurosport 2 allows subscribers to tune into British Superbikes and NFL Monday Night Football.

The roll out of the new channels comes looks to narrow the discrepancy between what's available on the set top box and the on demand platform.

The service, which now has 5.6m registered Sky customers who have access to 70 live channels and a swathe of on-demand content.

The likes of Sky Sports and Sky Atlantic are among the most popular channels on the service, with users able to enjoy live sport on their mobiles while catching up with hit shows like Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire at their convenience.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s Brand Director of TV Products, said: “It’s great news for our 5.6 million Sky Go customers who can now get even more shows to watch including TOWIE and Big Brother. Sky Go lets our customers have even more flexibility to enjoy the TV they love, on their terms.”

Sky is an expensive option, but continues to impress. Their hardware is just about adequate but their channel line-up is impressive as are their added services (on demand, sky go, etc).

I do wish they would get rid of their antiquated limits on the number of devices you can register (only 2 for normal subscribers, or 4 for those with multi room or who pay £5 extra). Even worse is the fact that you can only change 1 device per month!!

Most households will have more than 2 or 4 devices to watch Sky Go on. If they have to restrict, then restrict the number of simultaneous users rather then the number of devices.
