Sky Sports for iPad is being refreshed ahead of the upcoming Premier League season.
Football-crazy subscribers will be able to access Saturday Night Football – Match Choice on their iPads which provides live feeds and extended highlights of up to eight games from 10:00PM on Saturdays.
Director of Sky Sports digital media David Gibbs says: “We’re constantly improving the Sky Sports app for iPad, providing sports fans more ways to get closer to the action, wherever and whenever they want.

As well as this, fans will be able to access and drill down on a wealth of technical data about Premier League games as they unfold. In a manner similar to the Sky Sports Ashes Event Centre, touch and formation maps will be available for armchair analysts to sift through during catch-up of games.
This is the same information that experts Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher draw on for their post-match reviews. Viewers at home can mull over and repeat the finer points of a weekend’s games at their leisure, delving into a wealth of stats or simply watching repeats of games on their iPads.
As well as this, fans will be able to enjoy UEFA Champions League games from multiple camera angles on their iPad with Sky Sports 360.
To give you a better idea of how it all works, we went to the Sky Sports TV studio where David Gibbs gave us a run through of the app’s upcoming features.
Saturday Night Football – Match Choice will be rolling out to iPad owners as an update on August 17, the date of the Premier League kick off. Sky Sports for iPad is available as a free service for Sky Sports subscribers or £4.99/month for non-TV customers.
