Sky Go on Android is a bit of a touchy subject, both for users and developers. While every iPhone and iPad is Sky Go compatible, it is sadly not the case with Android smartphones and tablets. The reason for this is because, while Apple’s iPhone and iPod only has a few variations in terms of screen size and hardware, there are hundreds of different Android smartphones and tablets out there and each one is different in terms of hardware, screen size and even which operating system it is running.

Sky’s official word on the matter of problems with the Sky Go app and Android is that because the “Android platform covers a wide range of devices that have differing hardware and versions of the Android operating system. We have to tailor the Sky Go app for each smartphone to ensure our customers with these handsets get the optimum Sky Go experience which takes considerable time to build and test before we can release it.” The main problem areas for Sky Go and Android are HDMI outs, different screen resolutions, and different built in media players for Android smartphone and tablets.
