We've got a treat for you today, UK readers. If you've ever gotten tired of seeing products come out for the US with nary a release date for you in sight, today's the day you get one back: NOW TV, the UK-only streaming movie and TV service, is now available on Android. As long as you have a Sky Movies Pass, of course.

The service offers quite a few big name movies and plenty of television shows to watch. As with any online streaming service, it's not going to have everything, but for watching stuff on the go? Yeah, it will do the job. The app looks nice and clean, to boot. The app is available for free on the Play Store, but will require a subscription. You can get a free 30-day trial if you're a new customer and don't want to commit.

    No Galaxy Nexus/Nexus 7 support? - Useless!

    Don't rely on Sky to support more than a few devices or the latest operating systems properly...

    No asus transformer, htc one x or htc evo 3d support, in fact anything on ICS is off limits for bskyb apps. Its about time they got their act together.

    I'd be all over this if was the same price as Netflix or maybe a little more, but not treble the price :-(
