APP WATCH: Sky Go hits Android next week

We heard it was coming, but now we have a date for Sky Go on the Android platform. But it's not as straightforward as you might think.

The date, according to 'sources close to the matter', is 22 February, but not for everyone sadly. In the first instance, Sky Go for Android will be released for only HTC and Samsung phones, specifically, the HTC Desire, HTC Desire S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Incredible S, HTC Sensation, Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S II.

If you haven't got one of those, well, we really don't know. Sky has simply opted for the most popular Android phones and focused on those. It's not even available for Android tablets, which you'd think would be perfect for watching TV on the go.

If you've got one of the listed phones, then it's certainly good news if you want to watch sport, movies and TV wherever you are. But if you have a Sky contract, it's even better. That's because Sky Go is a free service for Sky customers, the amount of free content based on the subscription you have.


Alternatively, you'll currently be paying between £15 and £40 per month for the mobile-only service – not far from what you'll be paying for a full Sky TV system at home.
