The football season may have technically started already, with League Cup games being played in mid-week, but the Premiership kicks off this weekend. Luckily, Sky has released the Sky Sports TV app for Android just in time for those wanting to catch all the action on the go.

For £4.99 a month, you can access all 6 Sky Sports channels, including Sky Sports F1, as well as ESPN on your smartphone so that you don't miss a kick of the action. There's no contract involved, just a monthly subscription, so you can cancel at any time you like if you no longer want to use the service.

You can stream content over Wi-Fi or 3G, so if you have an unlimited data contract, now would be a good time to give it a bit of a workout. As long as you have a decent 3G signal, you should be able to stream the content without an issue, as Sky recommends a bandwidth of just 180-600kbps.

If you already have Sky at home and pay for Sky Sports, then you can get all of this content for free on the Sky Go app, which is also available on the Play Store.

If you want to try out the app, you can find a full list of supported devices in the app description on the Play Store. The list is a little bit short at the moment and Android 4.1 isn't yet supported either, but hopefully Sky will improve compatibility in future updates. Unfortunately, due to rights reasons, you won't be able to use the app if your phone is rooted.

    If they offered this for the US, they'd become so insanely rich off F1 fans, especially if it allowed us to stream from comp.
