Sky has announced that a Sky Mobile TV app for the iPad, which made its debut today (May 28) in the UK, has been made available on the App store.
Sky Mobile TV gives sports fans access to the Barclays Premier League, Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League and Coca Cola Football League games, as well as a host of other sports including international and domestic cricket, PGA golf and Guinness Premiership Rugby.
Existing Sky TV and Sky Player TV customers who subscribe to the Sky Sports Pack will get three months free access on the iPad, following which they will pay £6 (€7.08) a month. All other customers will be able to access the serviced free of charge for a month.
Commenting on the launch, Emma Lloyd, director of mobile, said: “With millions of iPhone and iPod touch users already enjoying rich video services from Sky, we’re delighted to once again set the pace by being one of the first UK broadcasters to embrace the iPad. No matter where you find yourself this summer, you’ll be able to keep up to date with the latest breaking news, Test match cricket, PGA golf and much more besides, with one subscription providing access across both iPhone and iPad.”
She added: “Whether it’s a Sky+HD box, games console, internet connected TV or set-top box, iPhone or iPad, Sky believes in giving customers the ultimate flexibility over how they access the content they love.”
