Sky Go Tablet for Android
Sky have released a dedicated Sky Go app for Android tablets with displays of 7 inch or larger. Sky already have a Sky Go app for smaller Android device and Sky say the app has a user interface designed for larger devices. I tried it on my Nexus 7 and I have to say I couldn’t see difference between the phone version and the tablet version. The app has the same features as the smaller version, you can access Sky’s live TV and on demand content. You will find the app in the Google Play Store but you do need a Sky subscription to access the content.
