Sky coming to mobile devices

Stuff reports:

Customers of pay TV giant Sky should be able to watch their favourite shows on their iPhone or iPads before Christmas, with other platforms to follow. …

At the company’s annual general meeting in Auckland this afternoon, Fellet announced that customers should have Sky content on their small screens by mid-December.

Fellet said he believed the “big screen in the living room will continue to dominate”, but recognised that few people these days left the house without a video-capable device. …

It had previously weighed up the option of launching a digital television service that would have broadcast Sky directly to mobile devices.

Fellet said the company had instead concluded that satellite technology and Ultra Fast Broadband would meet its future transmission needs.

Being able to watch Sky programmes on my iPad will be very useful. I prefer the big screen of course, but will be great when travelling to still be able to see my normal programmes easily.
