Sky Sports is just one touch away, so you never miss a kick
We’ve all been there – away from the telly, wondering how our team is getting on, all the while unable to check because you’re on the train or out shopping with your other half.
Sky Go is here to ease your pain, as the app provides Sky Sports and Movies customers with those all-important channels straight to your iDevice, completely free.
The setup is pretty straightforward. You either log in using an existing Sky ID, or create one through their website using your subscription details.
Moreover, the interface is very easy to navigate, with no more than three touches separating you from full screen viewing of all of the Sky Sports channels, in addition to ESPN, Sky Movies Premier, Showcase, Action and Adventure, and Family, just as long as you have the relevant subscription package.
The iPad version makes a great argument for the device to be used as a second screen at home should the TV be in use already, with its excellent sound and picture quality, in addition to the no fuss, no buffering viewing experience. Hopefully that will put an end to the argument over whether you’ll be watching Super Sunday football or Mama Mia.
For the sake of your data limits, Sky Go is probably more highly recommended for those dreaded ‘stuck on the train’ scenarios or on limitless wifi, but the overall presentation and slick nature of the app make it well worth having if you’re a Sky customer, and definitely another good reason to become one if you’re not. Sky continues to impress on iOS.
Easy to use and great looking. A must-have for Sky subscribers.
