With the new soccer football season kicking into gear, it’s only apt for sports fans to equip themselves with an app to catch the match on their Android devices. The recently released Sky Sports Android app on Google Play should be welcomed by Sky Sports subscribers in the UK and Ireland.
The app lets you catch all the latest action of your favorite sports while on the go. You’ll get access to Sky Sports 1-4, Sky Sports F1, Sky Sports News, Sky News, ESPN and At the Races – all for £4.99 a month. If you are already a Sky Sports subscriber, you don’t have to worry about spending extra money, because it's a free app.
Aside from giving access to 100+ games from the Premier League, the app also caters to folks with an affinity for F1, tennis and golf.
If there’s one minor quip, it’s untenable that the Sky Sports app doesn’t seem to support devices running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which admittedly will only disappoint the few who sport Nexus phones and tablets – at least officially, but it also only supports a handful of handsets. The list includes HTC Desire, HTC Desire S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Incredible, HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XE, Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S2, and Samsung Galaxy Note.
If yours isn’t listed, you can always try to sideload the Sky Sports app. Feel free to share the result in the comments below.
