sky_goSky has announced a major redesign of its Sky Go mobile TV service.

Customers in the UK and Ireland will start seeing the new design rolling out from this week, starting with a brand new home page for the mobile app and web service.  

This will be followed later in the year with updates to the app which the broadcaster says will “make the experience of watching whenever and wherever even better.”

Sky says the new features will make the app more intuitive and simpler for customers who want to “binge on box sets”.

Michele Swaine, Director of Product Development commented: “This is just the start of a really exciting year for Sky Go – an app that’s led the way in watching on the go and loved by millions of people around the UK. 

“Both the redesign rolling out today and brilliant new features coming later this year are all part of our commitment to making finding the best TV brilliantly simple. So grab your phone or tablet, log in, and enjoy your favourite TV wherever you are.”

The new home page rolls out from today for Android users, with an iOS update to follow in February as part of a phased roll out.
