Sky announced a couple of new things for its Sky Go service today, the first is that it will now be offering a further 14 channels on its line-up, allowing users on both iOS and Android devices to stream content from a new total of 57 channels via Wi-Fi or 3G/4G.

The new channels include Comedy Central, MTV, Dave, Watch, Gold, Discovery, Nat Geo, History, Alibi, Nat Geo Wild, TLC, Animal Planet, Good Food and Eden.

And if you’re an Entertainment Extra+ subscriber you can also watch box sets from ABC TV using the app.

And if that wasn’t enough, Sky made a second announcement, they will also be reducing the price of a subscription to Sky Go by 50 percent for 12 months, without the need to sign a new contract. Alongside which, Sky Go Extra will also double the user device allowance from two devices to four device permitted, as well as allowing users to download programmes and view them offline.

Before the price increase, Sky Go would cost an extra £5 a month on top of your Sky subscription, but as of today (if you are a Sky customer) you will be able to upgrade for just £2.50 a month for the first 12 months.

You can find out more about the reduced subscription price at sky.com.
