Is out on Google Play to download.

Brief test - looks good. A little strange navigation but, hey good going!

Doesn't work well on my sIII mini.
freezes every couple of seconds, then plays all the missed frames in high speed to catch up to the frame count.

3now and tvnz on demand work fine, and also before they blocked it, isky worked fine on sIII mini via flash.

any one else having freezes on siii mini?

I searched for the sky tv nz app, 
tap on it, and then scroll down the bottom and it will show Sky go NZ.

sky go nz doesn't show in search for some reason.
Samsung only I think.

Very disappointed with it. Quality is still very poor <1500kbps.

The whole Sky Go platform needs an overhaul.

They should look at the likes of Foxtel Go- Peaking at 8000Kbps and great picture quality with no buffering!

Oh Okay. I tried it last night on my Note 2 on wifi. Watched some netball highlights, and after the application crashed on me a few times, it finally started working but was not normal SD quality.

Plus after the application crashed, it would keep saying I already have one device playing/logged in. Took about 5 extra log in attempts to clear it.

Definitely not wife proof in my opinion.

Interface is not great, too much wasted space, the scrollbar to change channels from the main screen is "fiddly" and the inability to change quality by clicking the very obvious LQ/HQ is annoying. But it works so I suppose that's something (Galaxy Nexus - thanks for the APK TimA). Quality is similar to the web player which is to say "poor". We have UFB now Sky, time to step your game up.

Streamed the Warriors on Saturday in Martinborough via data connection. Worked a treat.  Although it did chew 1gb of data.

I've had the app running for a few days now, heavily used, apart from the poor quality video i get with it. it worked great! i agree with going with the likes of Foxtel Go with the 8000kbps streams. that would be great!

Streamed the NHL and news over the weekend on wifi... it works well. 
Loaded it onto my Nexus 10 and performs brill! As always, the more content will make a huge difference.

Has anyone tried the skygo app on one of those hdmi android sticks or any other android device (firetv etc) connected to a TV?

Im wanting to get sky into the spare room for very occasional watching. I have tried to find out if you can mirror ipad to appleTV, but google suggests this has been disabled on skygo (UK) as has HDMI out from Ipad (as they don't want it on a TV presumabely)

Cheers

I use the chrome and chromecast and just shove my lappy in a corner.  Not elegant but not much pissing around.
