Sky Update Sky Go With Premium Downloads To Watch Offline

Sky have updated their popular Sky Go App with a couple of new features, including a new subscription option to enable the downloading of content to the device.

The new version is now iPhone 5 and iPod Touch (5th gen) compliant, meaning it supports the new larger screen.

It also brings a new subscription option Sky Go Extra which for an additional £5 / month (on top of an existing Sky TV subscription) allows you to download content normally available to you to your device for offline watching later – without WiFi or 3G availability. Perfect for use on a train, plane or somewhere you just know you don’t have signal.

Sky Movies are available (if part of your package) and TV Channels such as Sky Atlantic, Sky 1, Sky Living or Sky Arts. Programs will be available for up to 30 days once downloaded.

On top of the new download feature, if you sign up for the Sky Go Extra service you can register the Sky Go App on 4 devices, an additional 2 over the normal limit.

To sign up to Sky Go Extra, all you need to do is visit Once this is done the next time you enter the Sky Go app you will be able to download programmes and register two more devices.

Existing Sky Go customers will be able to sign up for a two month free trial of Sky Go Extra until the end of March and after that the £5 monthly service can be cancelled at any time.
