Now that WP8 has been released any ideas if we might actually see a Sky Go app on this platform?
It was aleady frustrating that an app for WP7 has not been released but surely it's about time that Sky sit-up and notice that Microsoft are serious about their mobile devices, and that not everyone is interested in Android or IOS.

Windows Phone is here to stay.....MS are obviously quite serious about this so in turn believe you should be quite serious in developing compatible apps. Sky Sports Score Centre and Sky Go pretty please

Id like to add to this, Windows Phone 8 and windows 8 metro are here to stay - hell, every new pc will ship with windows8 so a huge customer base for the taking,
Please can Sky port the current apps to this new platform...

I have noticed many questions asking when a Windows 8 app will be available and Sky have consistently responded stating there are no current plans announced. As I regularly travel and user of both Sky Go and Windows 8 smart phone, it would be hugely appreciated by myself and no doubt many others, if Sky could provide an indication as to what could trigger the development of an app and how close or otherwise Sky is to hitting that trigger. Would this be possible?

Thanks for taking the time to post and welcome.
We are developing a Windows8 version but it has not been released yet, we are working on this and plan to update SkyGo ASAP but we do not have a timescale at present.

Thanks for your (encouraging) answer that you are developing a Windows 8 version. For clarification, can I confirm that you actually mean a Windows 8 Phone version. I already use SkyGo on my windows 8 pc.
Many thanks for your help

There appear to be questions going way back to last October requesting a Sky Go app for Windows 8. All answers appear to suggest an app is in development but no commitment on release date. Given it's at least three months since such answers have been provided, is it possible Sky could consider a more detailed brief on progress? Many thanks.

Due to a misunderstanding the Q&A response was incorrect. We have not announced any plans to develop apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 at present. We continue to monitor the market penetration of individual devices and platforms.
If we do have any news we can share we will post it on the forums.

Looks like my HTC8X Windows 8 (why by the way is a great handset and software but for the lack of key apps) was the wrong purchase, don't understand why Sky don't just dev the app, be done with it? I'm off to IOS if they will exchange my phone but I fear time has run out now. Not happy.
