Sky is set to launch its Sky Go Extra service this week, which will allow Sky customers who are already subscribed to its Sky Go service to download content to mobile phones and tablets.

The WiFi-based platform will be free for the first two months as an introductory offer, following which subscribers will pay £5 extra month.

Users of the service will be able to download on-demand movies and TV, as well as more exclusive content such as US TV series Girls and the entire James Bond catalogue.

Each download will last for a month, but users will be able to download as much as their device can hold, which, for some, could mean up to 80 films or 400 TV programmes.

Sky has claimed that this service is the first mobile TV subscription service in the UK and Ireland to offer Hollywood movies to download and watch offline.

Additionally, the Sky Go Extra app will be launched for a number of mobile devices, including Android and iOS devices. Confirmation will be announced when the app launches next week.

Sounds good as long as the files aren't too big, if say you only have 1GB of space left on your 16GB device, how much would that allow you to download.
