Rollout will begin on the "most popular" Samsung and HTC phones.
Yesterday, we reported that BBC iPlayer will make its debut on Sky later on this year in an attempt to fend off rivals such as Virgin, LoveFilm and new UK arrival Netflix.
Now, Sky says its Sky Go mobile streaming platform, which is only available to its customers on iOS devices, will be unleashed on the Android OS by the end of February.
The rollout will begin with "the most popular Samsung and HTC handsets", according to the firm's online help centre.
Users of the Android app will initially have access to the five Sky Sports channels, ESPN, Sky News and 11 Sky Movies channels (dependent on their package), while new additions Sky Atlantic, Sky 1, Sky Living and Sky Arts 1 will also be launched in the next month.
Holly Knill, head of Sky Go, said: "Sky Go is all about helping more people watch the TV they love wherever and whenever it suits them, so I'm delighted to announce the roll out of Sky Go to Android.
