Sky revamps sports app

BSkyB has revamped its Sky Sports app for the iPad with a new multi-camera highlights feature. 

Launching ahead of the UEFA Champions League final this weekend, Sports 360 will let users select and replay action during the game from over 20 different camera angles.

Live multi-camera technology from EVS will also makes feeds from around the pitch available during the game, allowing fans to pick a camera angle and to watch highlights in slow motion.

“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,” said David Gibbs, director of Sky Sports Digital Media.
