Sky have expanded the number of Android devices that can access their Sky Go, on-the-go TV streaming service.
The app now supports Android Jelly Bean versions 4.1 and 4.2 on select handsets, which include the HTC One Series (HTC Desire X, HTC One X, HTC One XL, HTC One S and HTC One V), as well as the Google Nexus 4, Google Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia S, Sony Xperia T and the LG 4X HD.
“As more and more smartphones and tablets come to market, the demand for Sky Go continues to increase at a phenomenal rate,” said Holly Knill, head of Sky Go.
“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.”
It’s a much-needed update by Sky, which had all-but overlooked the wide number of Android handsets with significant user numbers looking to access Sky Go.
No word yet on when Sky Go will hit Windows Phone devices, but if Sky’s tentative approach to Android was anything to go by, we wouldn’t hold our breath in hope of it being anytime soon.
