It looks like British TV network Sky is starting to catch up with the the pace of Android OS upgrades. Today it's launched a new version of its Sky Go mobile TV app, introducing support for 14 new devices along with Android versions 4.1-4.2.1 (Jelly Bean). Today's update brings Sky Go to a wider audience, after an update over the summer first opened it up to ICS phones.

From our own device history, we can confirm that Sky Go supports the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Galaxy S3 LTE, Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia T, LG Optimus 4X HD and Jelly Bean'd Galaxy Nexus, amongst others. Notable exceptions include the HTC One X+ and One S, which unfortunately remain unsupported.

Other changes in the new version of Sky Go for Android include improved navigation and various other UI changes.

Sky subscribers can grab the app from the Google Play link above.

No landscape mode when browsing?? Not ideal on the N7... (unless I've missed a setting...)

Meh Sky.... No thanks. Shite programming, and too expensive...

I wish BBC would allow the United States to view their network on phones, but they don't allow it in our country in the states for some weird reason, why we are blocked is beyond me.

Well done Sky, got there in the end, now time to change the policy of only 2 devices at a time and even worse I believe only 1 mobile device

Come on most people (or should I say) more people are now in possession of a tablet and a phone or at least 2 phones in a household

Well done Sky. Took you long enough though...

Finally support for JB and in particular the N7. They are, ever-so-slowly, catching up with iOS support... I sincerely hope that they open up support for more tablets.

Re the guy who mentioned the lack of landscape orientation when browsing, install Rotation Control from the Play Store. Money well spent I assure you.

About blinking time!

You can also add to you article that it supports the standard Galaxy S3, shame they didn't roll out support to the Nexus 10 though.
