Galaxy S4 to Have Sky Go Support at Launch

Sky Go users in the market for a new phone will pleased to know that when the Galaxy S4 launches later this month, it will support Sky's video-on-demand service from the word 'go' (sorry). An update for the Android version of Sky's Sky Go application reveals that the app will be compatible with several of the newest Android handsets, including Samsung's unreleased Galaxy S4. The update also includes bug fixes and improved stability along with support for the HTC One, Sony Xperia Z, and the Motorola RAZR HD. 

Back in December, Sky announced support for 14 Android devices, which brought the number of supported Android devices to 25. Today's update brings that number up to 25. The company released Sky Go for Android in February of last year, following a July 2011 launch of the service itself. A rebranding of Sky Player and Sky Mobile, Sky Go is free for existing customers.

Though the Android app now includes support for a total of 25 Android devices, Google's Nexus 10 has (rather curiously) been left out of two rounds of updates now. Both the Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 were added in December, but there's no sign of support for Google's 10-inch Nexus tablet.
