Sky Go Tablet, For Android

Found 3rd Dec 2013
Sky have today released their Sky Go Tablet app for Android.
The old Sky Go app would only work on a select few tablets, but they claim this new app works on the majority of Android tablets.

It might not appear on your Play store straight away but you can go to the link here play.google.com/sto…_GB

More info here too helpforum.sky.com/t5/…025

It's working fine on my Tesco Hudl

Compatible with Motorola Xoom & Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2012 edition) according to my Google Account! Finally.... pity I gave my notice to Sky the other day to cancel my entire TV package after Christmas, d'oh!

Don't worry Sky will contact you and offer you a decent discount to stay with them just before the cancellation period is due to end - so you might still get to use your Sky Go haha (_;)

Not compatible with my Nook HD

I tell a lie, it appears to work but I'm getting the manage device problem now, I hate Sky...

Sorted, working perfectly, I love Sky

(the last bit is a joke, I still hate Sky)

About time, makes up for me losing showbox earlier this week

Is this still blocked on rooted devices?

Yes.

Picture quality is marginally better than the original app, but why Sky had to go and release a tablet-only version is beyond me. Well, it's not actually, because Sky - bless 'em - have a track record for not having a clue when it comes to Android.

Be thankful for small mercies...

The sky website status that this is an interim step until they release a fully converged product next year.

Works perfectly on my gedified Xoom -more than happy with what they have done with this...

Okayyyy have an ipad soo gd luck to android users

Finally. Sky Go on my Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Thank you Mr Sky!!! Been waiting for this, didn't think it was ever going to be released!

Lovely, just in time for my £129 Galaxy tab from Very!

working perfectly on my Sony Xperia Tablet Z, thanks for the heads up!

About time

I heard this app is only available for Wifi use and not available for tethering, can anyone confirm this? Also anyone know if this will work in a Nook HD+ with an N2A card? as considering getting a card, but won't if this gets affected

And now show bow working again!

Keeps telling me it's not available for rooted android devices, but it did work for a couple of seconds then stopped and gave me the same message again

does it work on ps3?

Not before time! A company large like sky that makes mega profits you would think an updated app would have come along much sooner!

Do you mean Show Box? Is there an App on Play store for it? My Nook HD+ only lets me have apps from there...

Di you find that for some reason on loadin the skygo app, on ur gtab, that it load upside down and in portrait mode.....and then only changes to landscape mode onc you've selected something to watch.....
Slightly annoying.....but not as annoying as not having a skygo app for ages ....

I have a rooted Nook HD which it won't work on.
Any workarounds to this ? Tempted to revert to stock Nook operating system to see what it looks like.

Thanks..

Sooner than that probably, they were on the phone to me within 3 days of cancelling!

too many ads on sky go!!

Eh? What ads are you speaking of? There are no in-app advertisements, and the only ones you see are those that feature during and between programmes, as per normal broadcasting?

can fast forward on normal broadcasting though if you record or pause and wait!

Oh noes!

it's gr8 when it works but far to often it freezes when watching sports, crickets about the only one that seems fine
