    Sky+ Android app gets remote update

    Ciara O'Brien

    Sky customers with Android devices will now be able to control their Sky+ box using their phone or tablet, as the pay-TV broadcaster introduces a new remote control function.

    No longer lagging behind their iOS brethren, Android users can ditch their regular remote control and swap it for their smartphone, where they can change channels, pause live TV or rewind with a few swipes of their fingers.

    More importantly though is the ability to manage programme planners through the Android version of the app – you can delete recordings, or schedule new ones without ever having to use the TV menu. The only requirement is that you have your Android device connected to the same wifi network as your Sky+ box.
