Making 14 new devices compatible with the Sky Go Android app, the broadcaster has added support for Google’s latest own branded smartphone with the LG manufactured, Android 4.2 packing Google Nexus 4 joining the mix alongside on the Google Nexus 7. There are now 25 devices fully compatible with the Sky Go Android app.
“As more and more smartphones and tablets come to market, the demand for Sky Go continues to increase at a phenomenal rate,” Holly Knill, Head of Sky Go said. “We look forward to continuing to develop for as many devices as possible while at the same time innovating for the service so that it continues to raise the bar in terms of choice, flexibility and quality.”
With the Sky Go iOS application already supporting Apple’s full range of portable devices, the Android application has featured a slower rollout with Sky adding selected key handsets incrementally.
Joining the high-selling Nexus devices in the latest update, Sky has confirmed a further 12 handsets are now fully compatible with the Sky Go Android app including the HTC Desire X, HTC One X and the 4G capable Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE.
Hitting the most prominent handsets in the Android sector first, the Sky Go Android app is also now available for users of the HTC One XL, HTC One S and HTC One V as well as the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 and the Sony Xperia S. The final three handsets to have been given the Sky Go nod are the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, LG 4X HD and James Bond’s Sony Xperia T.
Offering Sky TV customers the opportunity to enjoy content on the move, Sky Go allows for live streaming or on-demand viewing of Sky content from 43 live channels including Sky Sports and Sky Movies.
