Android Sky Go Gets On-Demand TV, Ice Cream Sandwich Support Due Soon

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sky has announced some exciting and much-needed updates for the Android version of its Sky Go app, with those currently able to install it on their mobiles and tablets now able to access the on-demand content that features on Sky's Anytime+ portal.

As well as that little update, the broadcaster says the app will soon be installable on many new Android models, thanks to support for phones running Android 4.0, or "Ice Cream Sandwich" as Google annoyingly tagged it, scheduled to appear in an update that'll arrive at the end of July.

Which means the Sky Go app will be usable on Google and Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, plus Samsung's updated Galaxy Note, along with a handful of other models. Android fans will also be pleased that this version lets users move the app to an SD card, which is always a useful feature. [Techradar]
