Great app if it wasn’t so selective
Sky Go Review
by on April 10, 2012
Sky is up there with the BBC when it comes to innovating in the mobile space. Like the iPlayer, Sky Go allows you to view mountain of TV content on your smartphone or tablet. Well, it allows this on iOS but when it comes to the Android version, the app is only available for selected handsets and not on a tablet just yet. While this will infuriate some, if you are a Samsung or HTC owner and a Sky Subscriber, then this is a great app for you.
At the moment there are 23 channels which offer up their content through your smartphone. These channels vary from sport to movies to entertainment and all you to watch whatever is on the television at the moment.
When you load the app up, the first thing you need to do is link it with your Sky account. This should only take a few seconds but you have to bear in mind that you can only have two gadgets linked up at any one time.
One this is done, all you have to do it click on the channel and then the programme you want to watch and that’s pretty much it.
It does take a few seconds for the buffering to work on the app. When you first see the feed you may be taken aback by how poor it looks, but things becomes much clearer after 10 seconds or so. When the picture quality sorts itself out, so does the sound and the feed works great.
This isn’t an on-demand app, so it is a duplication of what Sky offers through a dish but as a facsimile of parts of this service it is great.
