Sky has announced an update for its Sky Go for Android app. On-demand content from Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Movies, Sky Living and Sky Arts 1 will be available to watch on the move from this month on more Android phones and tablets.

Sky Go for Android will now also be coming to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy Note, as support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is also finally added.

The final list of supported Android phones (regardless of ICS) are: HTC Desire, HTC Desire S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Incredible S, HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XE, Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Galaxy S2.

Holly Knill, Product Director for Sky Go, said: “This update means customers can enjoy some of the most popular shows such as Sky Atlantic’s Mad Men, Veep and hundreds of the latest Hollywood blockbusters, whenever suits them. We hope this update to the service offers extra flexibility to Android users and the new option of on-demand viewing makes a richer experience for all Sky customers across all platforms…

With the huge and ever-growing popularity of Android devices in the UK it’s fantastic to make on-demand content from Sky Movies and Sky Entertainment available to Sky customers for the first time.”

The Sky Go Android app launched in February on a selection of Android smartphones, offering access to eight sports channels including Eurosport in time for the London 2012 Olympic games, the Formula 1 season and the start of the 2012-2013 Premier League season.

Sky Movies customers can enjoy eleven Sky Movies channels, as well as hundreds of movies on-demand.

As well as Android phones and tablets, Sky Go is available on iPhone and iPad, PCs and the Xbox 360.

UPDATE: Amended to include list of supported phones.
