Sky Go arrives for Android. Well, some Android
Non-iPhone-owning Sky subscribers who want to watch old episodes of Criminal Minds and British Basketball matches on their mobiles are in luck – that’s because the Sky Go app has finally made it to Android phones! Rejoice, etc!
Except the problem is that it doesn’t work on Android 4.0, the latest incarnation of the mobile OS. Oh and it only works on HTC’s Desire, Desire S, Desire HD, Incredible S and Sensation handsets along with Samsung’s Galaxy S and Galaxy S2 devices. Apart from that, everything’s groovy in the land of Sky Go for Android.
A Sky spokestype said: “We appreciate that the lack of availability on tablets and earlier versions of the Android operating system could be frustrating for some customers, but we are continually working on the Android version of Sky Go and to deliver updated versions. We are working hard to ensure we can support further Android devices, as well as the latest Ice Cream Sandwich operating system (V4.0) but there are a number of technical considerations.”
So, essentially, if you want the Sky Go app for your Android phone, don’t upgrade to Android 4.0. Nice.
