Custom Sky Sports News App Launches for iPad, Now With Live Video

By Gary Cutlack on at

A new version of the Sky Sports News app built exclusively for iPad has been launched today, including live and on-demand video support so you can watch the Sky Sports News channel from within the app. It is for very big fans of Sky Sports.

Sky claims it's put a "dedicated editorial team" in charge of updating the app's news service, plus you get the same separate hubs for each sport as before, more in the way of minute-by-minute live event updates and a completely new visual look that ties in better with the TV channel's appearance.

The updated Sky Sports News iPad app is free for Sky subscribers to use, but there's also an in-app payment option that lets non-subscribers pay a one-off fee of £4.99 for one month of access to the service. [Sky]
