Sky Go available for Android phones
Android phone users will now have access to the Sky Go service, allowing them to watch a number of live channels including the Sky Sports channels and Sky News.

A new app from Sky being rolled out today (February 20th) will allow owners of Android phones to access the Sky Go service, meaning they can watch a number of popular channels on their devices.

This service has already proved a hit with iPad and iPhone users and there has been demand for its extension to handsets with the Android operating system since its launch.

Sky has also announced that three extra channels will be streaming on the new service - Sky 1, Sky Arts 1 and Sky Living.

This is on top of the company's three sports channels, its film and news channels, ESPN and Sky Atlantic, which showcases popular American television drama such as Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones.

Holly Knill, head of Sky Go, said the company is "extremely happy" to extend the streaming service to Android phones.

"We are always working to ensure that customers have more ways to watch content they love ... and this is exactly what this enhanced version of Sky Go delivers," added Ms Knill.

Android phones have continued to increase in popularity across the UK, with Sony Ericsson recently revealing 65 per cent growth in year on year smartphone sales.
