BRITISH BROADCASTER Bskyb has announced that its Sky Go Android app now supports more devices, including the Sony Xperia Z1 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Sky announced the news on Tuesday, taking to its community forum to boast that the Sky Go app is now supported on the HTC One SV, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony Xperia Z1, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Sony Xperia M and the recently released LG G2.
Sky also said that the app should play nicely now with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, after users experienced problems with the app earlier.
While this added support is good news for new Xperia Z1 or Galaxy Note 3 owners, Sky's staggered rollout highlights the continued fragmentation of the Android market, with the firm having had to rework its app to work with different screen sizes and components, rather than being able to release one Android application for all devices.
Nonetheless, the Sky Go application can be downloaded for free from the Google Play store, and is a free service for those who have a Sky TV box.
Users can choose to spend an extra £5 a month for use of the app on multiple devices, an extra which also offers users the option to download shows for offline viewing.
As well as Android, Sky Go is available on iOS devices PCs, Macs and the Xbox 360. µ
