£35 for non-subscribers, but is it worth it for Premier League on-the-go?

Sky Mobile TV Review

by on June 5, 2010

Sky’s successful iPhone and iPad app naturally migrates to the bigger screen, but non-Sky subscribers are in for a hit in the pocket because they won’t be tuning into any of that live Premier League football without shelling out 35 bones a month.

Existing Sky TV and Sky Player customers get to enjoy footy on the go for just an extra £6 a month.

Sky’s slick TV and online interfaces are replicated on the iPad, with an attractive, but simple listings guide for the available channels, Sky Sports 1, 2, 3 and 4, Sky Sports News and Sky News.

The revamped app also boasts a higher data rate, which brings with it better picture quality. Footage is great and buffering time is around the same as on Sky Player, dependant on connection speeds.

We’d like to see more channels on board, and hopefully a slight drop in price. Surely loyal Sky subscribers should be able to enjoy their money’s worth on a range of devices rather than shelling out more cash for multiple platforms. In the main though, it’s another great way to access Sky’s brilliant sports coverage on the go.
