Good news for Galaxy S III, along with Galaxy Nexus and Note owners – Sky Go has arrived on these Samsung handsets, as of today.
If you’re not familiar with the service, Sky Go allows you to watch channels including news and sport, and the Sky movies channel (providing you’re subscribed as part of your Sky package), all on the move, on your mobile.
Entertainment channels, and shows such as Mad Men on Sky Atlantic, Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model on Sky Living and Modern Family on Sky 1, are available on-demand at no extra cost. The service can be used via Wi-Fi or 3G.
The app first became available on Android phones in February, and since then has been rolling out to newer handsets. Galaxy Note users, with their giant phone screens, will doubtless be able to enjoy some film footage more than most phone owners.
In total, Sky Go is now available on 11 handsets, namely the HTC Desire (and Desire S, and Desire HD), the HTC Sensation (and XE version), and the HTC Incredible S. It was already out for the Galaxy S and S II, and these three new phones make the numbers up to 11.
A Sky household can register two different mobile devices to use Sky Go.
It’s been a busy week for Sky, as the company also launched Now TV, its streaming Lovefilm/Netflix rival. That platform allows you to watch Sky programmes and movies on a pay-per-view basis, or the other option is a £15 monthly subscription with (mostly) unlimited access (around 600 films, anyway, but not all of them).
