Sky Go Extra will let users download shows to their mobile devices for 5 a month

Being able to watch Sky TV on the go using, erm, Sky Go, is great, but streaming video away from your home router can often be costly, especially if you’re on EE’s basic LTE plan. Thankfully, the broadcaster is looking to launch Sky Go Extra, which, if The Telegraph is to believed, will allow up to four users to download anything from the Murdoch library straight to their mobile device. Adding such functionality to your family’s viewing habits will set you back £5 a month (after a two month free trial) but that also includes unlimited access to the company’s first-window movie catalog, a jewel it’s paid heavily to keep out of the hands of rivals such as Netflix Lovefilm.

BBC iPlayer reaching Windows Phone within ‘weeks,’ will catch up with Sherlock on your Lumia

We’ve see BBC iPlayer reach many devices over time, but it’s been conspicuously absent on Windows Phone. Nokia has stepped into give us some relief, and it’s now promising that a port of the TV catch-up service will be ready for your Lumia 800 “in weeks.” Good news no doubt, although Nokia’s encyclopedic knowledge of British TV streaming is also dashing hopes of using the Sky Go mobile app on Windows Phone anytime soon: the same Nokia rep doesn’t see Sky being ready for a “good few months” at the earliest. As such, you’ll have no problems keeping up with Doctor Who and Sherlock when they’re airing, but we wouldn’t count on watching live football matches for awhile.
