Sky Go Android release date coming soon

In the UK customers of British broadcaster Sky TV can watch channels they subscribe to on the go via a mobile device such as the iPhone or iPad. Today we can tell you that a Sky Go Android release date is set to be coming soon.

TechRadar are reporting in an article that Sky Go for Android devices will be launching “in the coming months“, after a spokesperson revealed the news. The service has been pretty successful since it was first made available for users of iOS devices and PCs. But so far the huge amount of Android users out there have been left frustrated waiting for the service to arrive on their platform.

A few months ago Sky said that it wanted to provide an Android application for the service this year, and a spokesperson said things were still on track with a launch in the coming months. While users are not given an exact date it is still likely to be launching this year.

The company recently revealed it has 1.6 million users taking advantage of the Sky Go service in the country, but this figure could be much higher if it was available on the Android platform. Recent studies have shown that half of the UK currently owns a smartphone.

This suggests that the company is at the moment missing out on up to a quarter of its user base for the service, and will need to get the Android app out in the wild if it wants to see Sky Go continue to grow.

Are you disappointed there is no Sky Go app yet?
