Sky Go Now Available in the App Store

New Sky Go App Brings Together Online and Mobile TV in a Single, Simple Service, for Sky TV customers

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 20, 2011) - Sky Go, which allows Sky TV customers flexible access to Sky content across iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store.

Sky Go allows all 10 million Sky customers to watch live channels in line with their subscription while on the move in the UK and Ireland. On iOS devices, Sky TV customers will be able to access all five Sky Sports channels, ESPN and Sky News, with further channels to be added over time.

This means that Sky Sports customers will be able to watch an outstanding line-up of live sports on the move and free of charge, while Sky Movies customers can view a selection of Sky Movies channels live.

Offering even more value from the Sky subscription, Sky Go brings together two existing services, Sky Player, Sky's online TV service and Sky Mobile TV, the UK's largest mobile TV service, with these services rebranded as Sky Go.

The Sky Go App is now available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.

About Sky Go

Sky Go will be available from August to non-Sky TV customers, with monthly subscriptions priced from £15-£40. Sky will also remain available on Xbox and Fetch TV, but will rebrand simply as Sky (currently Sky Player).

In time, Sky Go will be supported by Sky's acquisition earlier this year of The Cloud, a leading public Wi-Fi network that offers wireless access in over 4,500 public locations.
