Sky Go tipped to roll out to more Android phones in coming weeks
The Sky Go Android app looks set to be rolled out to more smartphones in the coming weeks.
According to a TechRadar source, the mobile application for Sky's multiscreen service will be available for several more Samsung handsets, while the app is also set to offer support for the Android 4.0 operating system.
The source explained that Sky is currently testing the app for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and is hopeful that it will be released for this device and Android 4.0-enabled smartphones in "the next couple of weeks".
Sky's broadcasting deal prevents it from launching Sky Go on devices with HDMI output and the pay TV giant also has to contend with different media players and screen resolutions when developing the app.
Users of some Android handsets have been able to download the application since late February, with the Samsung Galaxy and a selection of HTC devices among the first to gain access to Sky Go.
The program allows people to stream live content from up to 40 TV channels and watch catch-up services on an array of devices, including tablets, PCs and smartphones.
