Sky TV has announced the launch of a new streaming service named Sky Go, due to be launched in the UK on July 6th.
Sky Go is a combination and rebranding of the existing Sky Mobile TV services for Apple devices with the online Sky Player site for PC users.
As with the Sky Player service, Sky Go will be free for existing Sky TV subscribers. If you don’t subscribe to Sky TV already but want to stream Sky TV onto your iPad, you can subscribe for between £15 and £40 per month.
Sky Go will work on PC, Xbox 360 and the range of Apple products running iOS 4.0 or above – that’s the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4, iPad and iPad 2 and iPod Touch 2nd, 3rd and 4th Generation. Sky also says that an Android version of the Sky Go app will be made available later on this year.
You can register up to 2 devices to your Sky Go account, for instance your laptop and Apple iPad.
Channels and services for Apple products will be limited to the 5 Sky Sports, ESPN and Sky News channels to begin with. PC and laptop users will have access to more than 30 live channels including Sky Movies, National Geographic and Sky Atlantic.
