Starting in August, Sky TV customers will have access to Sky Go, Sky’s new mobile television service which combines Sky Player and Sky Mobile TV. In effect, Sky customers in the UK and Ireland will be able to watch sports, movies, and other TV programming on mobile devices via mobile network or local Wi-Fi networks. The software will also support Sky’s recently acquired Wi-Fi network “The Cloud,” which is already installed in over 4,500 locations. Non-Sky TV customers will also be able to get the mobile service with subscription plans costing from £15-£40.
Some of content subscribers will have acees to include 30 live channels (with all five Sky Sports channels), Sky Movies, Sky News, Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Arts, MTV, Disney, G.O.L.D, Nickelodeon, NatGeo, History, Eden and ESPN, as well as on-demand content. Sky will also remain available on Xbox and Fetch TV, but will rebrand simply as Sky (currently Sky Player).
The only caveat? You’ll only be able to register two devices for Sky Go access. Cheers.
