The move, which will be enjoyed by customers in the UK and Ireland, will be followed by a slate of new features. Sky says these will help make the app more intuitive while showcasing additional content.
Michele Swaine, director of product development commented: “This is just the start of a really exciting year for Sky Go – an app that’s led the way in watching on the go and loved by millions of people around the UK. Both the redesign rolling out today and brilliant new features coming later this year are all part of our commitment to making finding the best TV brilliantly simple.”
The brand new home page rolls out from today for Android users, with an iOS update to follow in February as part of a phased roll out. Customers who use the Sky Go web service will find the whole site and navigation has been overhauled from today with the new intuitive home page across all platforms.
Around 70 live channels can be viewed on the Sky Go app alongside catchup content.
