Sky Go video streaming app announced for HTC and Samsung phones

Do you live in the UK? Love TV? Jealous of Hulu? (Don't be - we have to pay for it on Android.) Own a recent Samsung or HTC Android phone? Then you're in luck: the other British broadcaster, Sky, has plans to release its Sky Go on select Android devices at the end of February. UK cell phone site 3G broke the news. Unlike most contemporary video streaming apps, the Sky Go app is live TV, letting users choose between 39 different channels at once. Sky Go was previously exclusive to iOS, because Sky hates fun didn't recognize the incredibly growth of the Android platform at the time.

The chip maker will be distributing hardware that will allow future TVs to run apps designed for Android code.

Swedish firm outs world’s first Android TV

As of right now, the set is only offered in Scandinavia, but the firm hopes to roll the sets out to the US later.

Android coming soon to Samsung TVs?

Android lovers who are in the market for a new flat panel TV just might want to hold off a bit longer. Bloomberg is reporting that Samsung, the top TV maker in the US with nearly 20% market share, is considering the much loved Android OS for a future line of televisions.
