Sky has dramatically redefined its mobile TV proposition, announcing a new Sky Go app that combines features found on its original iteration, and the dedicated Sky Q app. It’s expected to launch within weeks.

The new app boasts a simplified UI, designated Home, TV Guide, Browse, Downloads and Recordings, to navigate the experience. There are personalised Sky Cinema recommendations, suggesting movies based on genre and previously watched content.

The ‘Browse’ page provides viewing by theme and genre, aggregating content across all channels on Sky Go, while a specific Recordings page allows Sky Q customers to view and control upcoming recordings and series links, while out and about.

There’s also improved accessibility and better navigation features, to make it easier for visually impaired customers to use. Voiceover lets customers hear a description of everything they click on, font size can be increased without losing functionality and colours can be inverted for greater contrast

The new Sky Go app will be available on iOS, Android, Amazon Fire devices and the Amazon app store, as well as on PC and MAC.

Sky Mobile customers can also take advantage of unlimited streaming of Sky shows, movies and sports on Sky Go with Sky Mobile Watch, which enables streaming on the go anywhere in the UK and EU, without using any of their data allowance.
