With around 70 million Sky Go customer sessions in 2013, we have doubled that of the previous year. The numbers show how popular Germany’s and Austria’s best online television is. This is why we’ve decided to activate Sky Go for all Sky customers as the perfect complement to their Sky subscription. But that’s not all. Later this year we will be completely redesigning the Sky Go service & including a number of additional functions.”
