Sky has rebranded Multiroom; the service that lets you have multiple Sky+HD boxes in the home now goes by the name of Sky Multiscreen.
To reflect the fact that Sky Go Extra lets you access Sky TV channels on a number of screens besides your TV – your laptop, tablet or phone – the service has been given a new moniker to reflect the mobile nature of the service.
Sky Go Extra, which launched this summer, costs £5 a month for regular Sky TV subscribers but has been bundled as a free feature for customers taking out Sky Multiscreen.

Sky Go Extra increases this to four, making it a natural fit for Multiscreen customers, families and those living in shared homes.
You can access Sky Go on Windows (XP, Vista, 7) and Mac (OS X 10.5 up to 10.7) machines running Silverlight, Xbox 360 and iOS devices running iOS 5.1 or above.
At the last count, the Sky Go app was available to download on 45 Android devices, the result of Sky redoubling its efforts to increase the number of Android phones and tablets that can access the service.
