Back when I was a kid we used to buy packs of video cassettes at this time of year. Just the other day I showed my son a VHS video cassette and .. well, let’s just say he wasn’t impressed. “Is it a box?”, he said. It’s a fair point, they were huge and there was nothing worse than having to rewind a VHS tape.
Now, the idea of buying a TV Guide, packs of blank cassettes and then spending hours lying on the floor trying to program a video recorder is just a painful memory. Apps like Sky Go let us set our PVR (Sky+ box) while we’re sat on the toilet and it takes seconds.
A new version of the app is now available which adds gloss, on-demand TV, support for 14 new devices and support for Android Jelly Bean. Yeee-haaa!
Devices now enabled for Sky Go are:
HTC: Desire X, One X, One XL, One S, One V, HTC Desire, HTC Desire S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Incredible S, HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XE
LG: LG 4X HD
Google: Nexus 4 and Nexus 7
Samsung: Galaxy S3 LTE, Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Note 2, Samsung: Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Galaxy Note
Sony: Sony Xperia S, Sony Xperia T
So go now, download the app and get your Christmas programmes set. What? What’s that? There’s nothing worth recording? Oh, sorry. Nothing we can do about that. :)
