Sky Go app lets Android users watch Sky TV

Sky's Go app has now gone live for Android users (free, Android Market), letting users of some Android phones with a Sky TV subscription access 22 live TV channels from the provider. The app can only be used in the UK or Ireland and will stream content over a 3G or Wi-Fi connection. Users can register up to two devices and watch TV simultaneously on both.

While Android 2.2 and 2.3 are supported, security worries have limited the compatible smartphones to HTC's Desire, Desire S, Desire HD, Incredible, and Sensation, as well as Samsung's Galaxy S and Galaxy S II. Upgrading to Android 4.0 will make the app unusable until a newer version is released, although none of the devices listed are either yet running 4.0 or capable of it.

Unlike in the iOS version of the app, there is no pause or Anytime+ (Sky's video on demand service) support. [via Pocket-lint]
