Sky Sports For iPad Now Lets You Choose Your Own Camera Angles During Replays



When you’re watching the game, wouldn’t it be awesome if you could replay key moments from any camera angle you choose?

With the latest Sky Sports update for iPad, you can. Launching just in time for the upcoming UEFA Champions League final, Sky Sports 360 is a brand new feature that lets viewers select and replay exciting moments from over 20 different camera angles.

With Sky Sports 360, you can replay amazing saves, crunching tackles, spectacular goals, and more. You can even use it to see whether the ball really did cross the line, or whether that controversial offside decision was correct.

The new feature is found within the Champions League Events Center in the Sky Sports app for iPad. It makes the live, multi-action camera technology around the pitch available to fans during the game, allowing them to pick their own highlights and camera angles.

It even lets you choose your own slow-motion replays.

The Champions League Events Center is the first of many second screen experiences available to Sky Sports subscribers; the technology is also available for Formula 1, Barclays Premier League games, and major golf tournaments.

“This is great news for the Sky Sports for iPad app, which keeps getting better and better,” said David Gibbs, Director of Sky Sports Digital Media.

“This is about putting the technology into the hands of the viewer and allowing them to recapture the big moments in the final. It’s the first time we’ve offered this through our app and it’s another example of our investment in the Sky Sports viewer’s experience.”

Sky Sports for iPad is available at no extra cost to Sky Sports subscribers in the United Kingdom, while non-Sky customers can get it for £4.99 per month. Find the latest version of the app in the App Store now.
