One of the most revered poker sites that you can find right now is one owned by the huge Sky Broadcasting, Sky Poker. Thanks to being part of such a successful broadcasting company, Sky Poker has benefited from having their own dedicated advertising across Sky channels. Originally just a web-based service, Sky Poker is now available across PC and can be downloaded as a mobile app.
How to Download and Use the Sky Poker App
iOS and Android
You’ll be glad to hear that currently, Sky Poker offers an app for their customers to download for both iOS and Android users. For ios users, you need to simply head over to the Apple App Store and search for ‘Sky Poker’ and you’ll be greeted with their mobile app. For those of you using Android devices, you can download their available app through the Google Play Store, or by downloading the file via the Sky Poker website. The download should only take a few moments to complete with the app being small in size. If you happen to own a device that can not support the Sky Poker app, then rest assured as you can access all their services via their mobile website.
Whether you are using the app or website, your first port of call should be registering an account with Sky Poker which can be done by selecting the green ‘Register’ tab found at the top of the homepage. After filling out the required details you will have successfully made an account and can now enjoy all their services.

Sky Poker App Summary
With a huge bank behind them, a smooth and well-functioning app was expected and we encountered no problems when using it. A range of tournaments can be enjoyed from your mobile device, including sit and go tournaments. One of the few drawbacks to using Sky Poker is that it has very limited payment methods and can only be accessed from within the United Kingdom and Ireland. Overall, we highly recommend giving Sky Poker a try if you are currently in the UK and/or Ireland.
