Sky Go reaches a million

Satellite entertainment giant Sky has announced their Sky Go service has reached one million downloads, since launching in July this year.

Sky Go allows for their 10 million customers to watch live TV on the move, either on laptops, PCs and Macs and also on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

The Sky Go feature offers up a range of channels in one simple to use package, which includes all five Sky Sports channels and live too.

Sky customers can register up to two Sky Go devices, in order to watch a selection of the live TV channels as a part of their TV subscription.

Sky Go was formed from the merger of two existing services: Sky Player, Sky's online TV service, and Sky Mobile TV.

iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users have access to Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2, Sky Sports 3, Sky Sports 4, Sky Sports News, ESPN and Sky News.

Laptops and computers have access to more than 30 live channels, including all five Sky Sports channels, Sky Movies, Sky News, Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Arts, MTV, Disney, G.O.LD, Nickelodeon, NatGeo, History, Eden and ESPN - all supported by an extensive library of on-demand content.

During August, Sky customers watched over 40 million pieces of content on Sky Go, 85% of which was live channels and 15% on demand.
