Sky, the British TV and telecom company, has a series of apps for Android, but most of them are only available for the UK (and Ireland I think). Only Sky News appears to be available to a more worldwide audience, and now Sky Sports is joining it.
There's a new separate Play Store listing for Sky Sports International - the regular Sky Sports is still a local-only affair - and as far as we can tell, it seems to only be available for installation to a few countries. It's showing as incompatible with all my devices in Lebanon and James says the same is for him in Japan. Read More
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. Read More
The English domestic football season may have already come to a dramatic close with the red and blue sides of Manchester fighting it out for the Premier League title, but there's no time to rest with Euro 2012 just around the corner.
The competition kicks off on June 8th, with the first match between host nation Poland and Greece kicking off at 5pm BST (12pm EST), and with your Android device in toe, you can make sure that you don't miss a single thing that happens between then and the final.
This guide is geared towards people living in either the UK or the USA, although there are some apps listed that can be used regardless of where you live.
Sky Go, a service which allows Sky TV customers to watch live and archived content on the go, has been available in the browser and on iOS devices for 7 months now, and according to Holly Knill, the head of Sky Go, it's finally coming to Android devices next month as well.
Customers running "a selection of Android smartphones starting with Samsung Galaxy and HTC handsets" will be the first to have the opportunity to test the new Sky Go app, but there is no mention of support for any other devices in Sky's post just yet. Presumably, the app will be rolling out to select devices in order to iron out any lingering bugs that are found once it is released into the wild, and hopefully it will be coming to many more devices, including tablets, in the future.
