Sky TV in the UK has announced its new Sky Mobile TV app for iPad via its Tech Talk blog. This is basically an enhanced version of the app that was already available for the iPhone/iPod touch. According to Sky, Sky Mobile TV is the UKâ€™s most popular mobile TV service, providing access â€œon-the-moveâ€ to all Sky Sports channels and Sky News.
The new iPad app, which is available to download now either from the App Store on iPad or from the iTunes App Store, has been created to take advantage of the iPadâ€™s superior screen size. Although the app is free to download, youâ€™ll have to pay a whopping Â£35 per month to subscribe if youâ€™re not already a Sky customer. Existing Sky TV customers will â€œonlyâ€ have to pay Â£6 per month rather than the full Â£35. Currently Sky is offering existing Sky TV and Sky Player TV customers who subscribe to the Sky Sports Pack three months free access to the new iPad app. Other customers who donâ€™t have the Sky Sports Pack will get a monthâ€™s free access.
