Sky Go For Android Tablets Is Here
A day later than expected, but Sky Go Tablet is now available on Google Play
Sky Go has been available on Android smartphones for ages already, but the majority of Android tablets owners have missed out on the service. That's now changed with the release of the new Sky Go Tablet application for Android tablets , which is available to download from Google Play.
Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s Brand Director of TV Products, commented: “We know that lots of our customers are using Android tablets, so we look forward to even more customers now being able enjoying the flexibility and convenience of watching their favourite content wherever they want.”
The new application brings Sky Go to "The majority of Android tablets of 7 inch and above in size which run Android 4.0 and above." But those with a Asus TF101 or an Amazon Kindle tablet miss out, and the current build of the application is having problems with the Nexus 7 (running KitKat).
The application has now been fully optimised for larger tablet displays, which range anywhere from 7 inches all the way up to 10 inches. Initial reaction from those who've installed the new tablet version of Sky Go seems extremely positive, apart from those with a Nexus 7 - but Sky are working hard to resolve the issue.
Sky Go enables Sky customers to stream live and on-demand TV on their smartphone, tablet or desktop PC. Over 37 live channels are available including Sky Sports and Sky Movies, and there is a huge library of on-demand movies and TV shows to enjoy.
One thing to note is that each Sky account can only register two devices and changes can only be made once a month. So choose wisely to avoid getting a device locked-out, or alternatively you can add another 2 devices for £5 a month.
