Sky Sports for the iPad adds Ashes Event Centre

Sky Sports on an iPad
Sky have updated the Sky sport iOS app in time for the Ashes. Cricket fans will be able to watch ball-by-ball coverage of the Ashes as well as highlights, and analytical tools. I know from using the app to watch the F1 Sky do a great job with the Sky Sports app.

The app is free but you will need a Sky Sports subscription to access live streams.

What’s New in Version 6.0

The new Sky Sports Ashes Event Centre is the ultimate way to experience England’s Test series against Australia.

Our first-ever second screen experience for cricket allows you to watch live ball-by-ball coverage on your ipad and puts the best of Sky Cricket’s analysis at your fingertips.

An integrated timeline of session-by-session highlights means you’ll never miss a key incident and our in-running match stats and text commentary will keep you right up-to-date as the action unfolds.

The Ashes Event Centre also features an integrated Hawk-Eye app giving fans the ability to review every ball and the best analytical tools used in the commentary box, including pitch maps, worms and player statistics.

In addition an integrated social media feed allows you to interact and share your views on Twitter.

So whether you are at home, at work or on the move let The Ashes Event Centre take you to the heart of the greatest battle in cricket.
