Sky Italia, Nokia and Microsoft have announced the global debut on Windows Phones of Sky Go, the service that allows users to view 30 pay-TV channels on the go. Thanks to this agreement, the app – already chosen by 1.9 million Sky subscribers – will be coming to the entire Nokia Lumia family in Italy from the middle of December.
The agreement allows Sky Italia to enhance its mobile service by offering some of its most popukar content to owners of Windows Phone 8 Lumia smartphones, which are increasingly widespread in Italy.
“Sky Go on the Windows Phone 8 platform is a world exclusive for Italy and a true Christmas present for our customers,” said Paola Cavallero, General Manager, Nokia Italia. “We are particularly pleased with the partnership with Sky as it will further increase the satisfaction of our Italian users of Lumia devices. This app, in addition to the recent arrival in the Store of other successful brands such as Instagram and Vine, will be available on the entire Lumia family stretching from the Lumia 520 to the new Lumia 1520 with its high-quality 6-inch screen.”
