“Android platform covers a wide range of devices that have differing hardware and versions of the Android operating system. We have to tailor the Sky Go app for each smartphone to ensure our customers with these handsets get the optimum Sky Go experience which takes considerable time to build and test before we can release it.”

The main problem areas for Sky Go and Android are different HDMI outs, screen resolutions, built in media players for Android smartphone and tablets.
