Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Will Sky Go Land on the PS Vita?

Way back when, in the UK, Sky briefly offered a service where PSP owners could download Sky Sports and TV content to watch on their consoles. It was a neat prototype before the many phone-based iPlayer-like services hit. Now, Sky Go is a massive expansion of that theme, currently for iPhones and iPads plus PCs.

Current Sky Subscribers get it free, non-subs can get it for a monthly subscription. Currently the service offers the four Sky Sports and News channels, all wrapped in a neat interface and using WiFi or 3G. Its not too hard to imagine the Sony Vita getting such an app or service. And, as Sky has divisions around the world, it could play happily in Australia, Italy and other territories.

Hopefully, others will follow and the Sony Vita with that lovely screen could soon play home to all your favourite entertainment. Check out the great trailer for Sky Go...
