The .apk is below, please report whether it works.

According to Sky it should only work on:
HTC Desire
HTC Desire S
HTC Desire HD
HTC Incredible
HTC Sensation
Samsung Galaxy S
Samsung Galaxy S II.

And it only works on Froyo (2.2) and Gingerbread (2.3), so no ICS yet using the official app.

There are also some issues with root and DRM begin not able to see some content.

credit to Sky for the app.

credit to gumbald for the upload.

SGSIIs look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=22821145

You have an S2 which is supported can you upload?!
I think root only blocks not live tv, which is still annoying.

Yeah - i'd love to try to see if the .apk might work - no harm since its a free app anyway - We could be waiting a long time to get it on other devices. Especially like a tablet.......... Any upload would be greatly apreciated

Apparently it's compatible with the HP Touchpad, but can't test until I get home tonight.

I've installed this on my rooted Galaxy Nexus (4.02) and when I try and sign in it says," Sorry, Sky Go is not currently supported on this device. Please see FAQs for more information.". :(

Installs and runs on rooted galaxy nexus, however when you go to sign in, a message pops up saying sky go is not supported on this device. going to take a lot more trickery to convince it that its running on one of the other devices. Thanks for the APK though.

I've installed it onto my GS2 (Villian Rom 3.0 (2.3.5) rooted obviously) installs fine but will only play Sky News.. all over channels in my subscription just sit on the loading screen.

Sometimes a error flashes up briefly but to quick to see what it says.

As Sky News is a free to air channel this must be down to DRM restrictions on the other channels and therefore this is why its checking for root access???
