Football fans will be able to watch Premier League highlights in HD as Sky launches a high-definition version of its popular channel, Sky Sports News.
The iPad app will also offer streaming access to Sky Sports News Radio, a new radio service which will offer rolling sports news coverage.
Sky Sports News’ executive editor, Andy Cairns, said: “At Sky Sports News we continue to push boundaries and innovate with both the journalism we offer and the quality of on-screen presentation.
“I’m delighted that through a combination of our move to HD, broader editorial coverage, and innovation on the TV, PC, iPad and mobile, we will once again raise the bar in broadcast sports news journalism.”
The standard definition version of Sky Sports News first went to air in 1998, and was the UK’s first ever dedicated sports news channel.
