Select HTC and Samsung phones to get first dibs on the official Sky Go app

Great news for Android phone owners. Sky Go is finally set to launch on February 22, offering on-the-go access to Sky Sports, Sky Movies and loads more top channels

The wait is almost over for Android loyalists desperate to access Premier League football on-the-go following news of the official release date for the Sky Go Android offering.

On 22 February Sky will make the app, so popular on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, available for select Samsung and HTC phones, with more to follow, according to a TechRadar source.

Our sister site also says it has been informed that the app may even appear in the Android Market before the 22nd.

The Sky Go app brings unlimited live streaming for Sky subscribers and allows non-dish owners the opportunity to sign up for a monthly fee. The channels available through Sky Go mirror those you subscribe to through your home set-top box.

The likes of Sky Sports, Sky Sports, ESPN, Sky Movies, Sky Atlantic and Sky Sports are all on-board, with the broadcaster looking continually to add to the array of channels served up by the app.

You'll need an HTC Desire, Desire S, Desire HD, Sensation, Incredible S and the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy SII if you want to access the app from the get go.
