Just as was promised a few weeks back, British broadcaster Sky has opened up its Sky Go on-demand video app to certain Android devices running 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and above, including the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note and Galaxy S III. The update brings ICS support to the Sky Go app for the first time, allowing Sky subscribers with these devices to view the same streaming content available on approved Gingerbread devices like the Desire S and Desire HD. Unlike many other app vendors, Sky tailors its offerings to specific phones, usually high-selling models, so Sky Go remains restricted to a small number of handsets for now.

As we reported a few weeks back, Sky Go recently launches new streaming content across its range of Sky Go apps, including entertainment channels Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Living and Sky Arts 1. An app update also allowed subscribers to view and manage their accounts on-the-go.

If you find yourself in possession of both a Sky subscription and one of the supported devices, you download the Sky Go app for Android via the Google Play web interface linked below.

Brilliant, you wait months for it to even come out, when it finally does in Feb, it doesnt work on my Galaxy nexus, or any ICS phone. 4 Months later, and 2 weeks after Jelly bean is announced, they release an updated version that allows for the galaxy Nexus and ICS, but my phone is on Jellybean........ same old SKY - Useless!

Does not work with rooted devices. Afraid rooted device is far more important to me than Sky Go!

If that be the case, SuperUser should be able to work around it.

On the same boat, was excited to this, thought just maybe it would somehow miraculously work on my Galaxy Nexus on JellyBean, and to my surprise, it does not. Damn you Sky, damn you!

Try using Voodoo rootkeeper to hide root access and then run Sky Go.

I doubt Jelly Bean support will be available for a while as it doesn't work with flash.

Voodoo won't do it on my Galaxy Note

Crashes straight away on my Galaxy Nexus with Jellybean even if root is hidden.
