For those that may have missed the news, Skyâ€™s twitter and Android Developer accounts were compromised, and there is a suggestion that the apps themselves may have been hacked too - full information here: http://landoftechnology.com/2013/bskyb-android-apps-hacked-by-syrian-electronic-army/
Sky have been very quiet on the situation and indeed it does not seem that they have regained control of their main sky twitter account @SkyHelpTeam yet.
I have just received a tweet from their alternate twitter account (that few people know about and is purely for Sky customers) @MyVeryOwnSky which stated that any apps that are installed remain safe to use, they are reviewing the apps in the play store and will put them back up soon. Â This suggests that they are unsure if the apps were hacked, so if you have the Play Store set to auto-update the previous advice of un-installing the apps is probably the safest thing for now.
@lennyuk Hi Glenn, if you have the apps already they are safe to use. We are checking the ones in Play Store and they will be back shortly. B

Hopefully there will be an official statement and the return of the apps to the Play Store soon.
