For more than three years, Brits have been able to enjoy the Sky Go app on their Android device. Sky's been quite clear that as long as you own a smartphone or tablet running Android 4.0 (and you have an active Sky subscription), you can get involved -- as long as you aren't trying to download it on an Amazon device. Sky's aversion to the world's biggest online retailer has persisted, but as it gets ready to unleash Sky Q on the world, the company has finally relented and decided now is the time to slot in the missing piece of the Android puzzle.

The timing of the launch couldn't be better: with millions of Brits getting involved in Black Friday and the Cyber Monday that followed it, many will have picked up the new Fire tablet, which was discounted to £35 from £50 over the shopping event. Sky says the app is available now on the Amazon Appstore and will support "multiple generations of Fire tablets," meaning older Kindle Fire tablets might be included too.
