Sky Go, the leading mobile TV service in Europe, to get its biggest-ever re-design in UK and Ireland.
Sky has announced its biggest ever redesign of Sky Go, the leading mobile TV service in Europe. From this week in the UK and Ireland, Sky will start rolling out the new design, beginning with a brand new home page for the mobile app and web service.
“This is just the start of a really exciting year for Sky Go – an app that’s led the way in watching on the go and loved by millions of people around the UK.”
Michele Swaine, Director of Product Development
Later in the year, the popular streaming service will introduce clever new features to make the experience of watching whenever and wherever even better. These updates, all part of Sky’s continued commitment to innovating on its leading mobile platform, will put both live and on demand TV at the heart of Sky Go.
The new features will make the app more intuitive, surfacing more shows, sports and movies to the millions of customers who use Sky Go every month. It will become simpler to binge on box sets with a watch next episode feature and easier to find more movies to watch similar to ones you’ve been watching.
So whether you want to watch that addictive box set in the bath, catch the end of a Bond movie in bed, or enjoy the thrilling end of a drama whilst dishing up dinner, the newly redesigned Sky Go will make it even easier to dip in and find exactly whatever it is you want.
Michele Swaine, Director of Product Development commented: “This is just the start of a really exciting year for Sky Go – an app that’s led the way in watching on the go and loved by millions of people around the UK.
“Both the redesign rolling out today and brilliant new features coming later this year are all part of our commitment to making finding the best TV brilliantly simple. So grab your phone or tablet, log in, and enjoy your favourite TV wherever you are.”
The brand new home page rolls out from today for Android users, with an iOS update to follow in February as part of a phased roll out. Customers who use the Sky Go web service will find the whole site and navigation has been overhauled from today with the new intuitive home page across all platforms.
