Subscribers to the Sky TV service that also own an Apple iOS device have long been able to enjoy content while out and about with the Sky Go application. In the meantime users of the Android platform have been left waiting. Today we have good news for these users as the Sky Go for Android app gets a possible release date for a select number of handsets on the platform.

Consumers looking to watch Sky content while on the go via their Android devices don’t seemingly have much longer to wait for the release of the application. Sources have told TechRadar the application will finally be released next week on February 22nd, after it was in testing for a number of months.

There is even a chance the application could be released before then according to the sources. Previously last month Sky revealed the application was on route and would be released in time for the new Formula One season, which begins next month on the 16th with the Australian Grand Prix.

Strangely the Sky Go for Android app will only be released for some Samsung and HTC smartphones. These include the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC Desire, HTC Desire S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Incredible, and HTC Sensation.

It is not currently known why these are the only devices to get the application at first, other than the fact they are the most popular. Sky has been busy expanding the offerings on the Sky Go app by adding extra channels to the service, which will now include the likes of Sky Movies and Sky One.

Hopefully it won’t take long before other devices such as Android tablets get the app for users to enjoy. Have you been waiting for the Sky Go for Android app?
