UK satellite TV provider Sky, finally launches Sky Go for iPhone and iPad

After promising that it would be available on July 6, UK satellite TV provider Sky TV has finally released its new app to allow users to access content while on the go. The app called Sky Go will offer users access to all five sports channels as well as a select number of Movie and news channels.

The app is the successor to Sky’s previous app Sky Mobile TV. The new app seems to offer a larger amount of channels but you are now restricted to only using it with two devices; which have to be registered. None of Sky's entertainment channels such as Sky One are included which is very disappointing.

The app is free to download however you must have an active Sports subscription with Sky in your home to be able to access the content. Streaming works over WiFi and 3G and the app is universal for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

[Free – iTunes link]

UK satellite TV provider Sky, finally launches Sky Go for iPhone and iPad


This app is almost exactly the same as the previous Sky Mobile TV app. The only difference apart from small UI changes is that you can now also access four movie channels if you also subscribe to the Movies package at home. Also it is free instead of €6 per month for Sky TV subscribers.
Previously this iOS app was limited to two iOS devices (an iPhone and an iPad). This remains the same as before. Although you can now nominate a Mac or PC as a device as well within the two device limit.
Streaming works really well as before.

It works beautifully, but is far too limited in channels. It should be a portal on to their on demand service! That way I could hook it up to an apple tv and use it as a second box.
