Sky Go channels
From today any users of the Catch Up service can now stream and download content from a wider choice of channels

From today, any one signed up to Sky Go can now access a further 14 channels for streaming or download on compatible mobile devices, laptops and the Xbox 360.

The new channels include some of Sky's most popular: Comedy Central, Dave, MTV, Gold, Nat Geo, History and Discovery to name a few.

Sky's Brand Director of TV Products, Luke Bradley-Jones, said of the update, "Sky Go has gone from strength to strength since it launced in July 2011 and now attracts over 3 million unique users quarterly."
