You can see from the above image that the description for the Sky Go app says "Syrian Electronic Army Was Here". Twitter has been a source of information as usual, with the Sky Help Team stating: "UPDATE: All Sky's Android apps were hacked and replaced... please uninstall it, And we will let you know when it will be available".

 

So if you're running a Sky TV app, you might want to remove it from your device completely and only reinstall once Sky have given the all-clear.
