Sky Sports News updates iPad App

Live and on-demand video content from the subscription-based sports channel

Sky Sports News has updated its iPad App. The interactive service is now designed specifically for iPad and features rich graphics and up-to-the-minute data, as well as live and on-demand video content.

A previous version of the app made it possible for users to watch the Sky Sports News channel by launching a separate mobile TV app. Users can now watch the subscription-based sports channel live through the app as well as tune in to Sky Sports News Radio.

"The Sky Sports News App is the latest exciting development in the evolution of Sky Sports News, which is now bigger and better than ever before," said Andy Cairns, Executive Editor of Sky Sports News.

"We aim to be the ultimate sports news service for our customers, and thanks to this new app we can provide them with the latest sports news and in-depth coverage, wherever they happen to be."

The app features dedicated home pages for all major sports, including football, rugby and cricket, offering all the major stories of the day alongside the latest fixtures, results and standings, said the broadcaster.

Other features include instant coverage of the latest breaking news as soon as the app is launched, and a Latest News panel that appears along the right hand side of screen.

The Sky Sports News App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore .

The App is also available to non-Sky customers on a stand alone basis for £4.99 per month through In-App Purchase.
