Sky has just launched their new Sky News iPad app here in the UK, it is be available as a free download for a limited time, and it will let you watch live TV from the Sky News as well as videos on specific news items.
It comes with a very nice interface that will either let you watch videos within your timeline or from the top stories of the day, and you don’t just get videos with each video there are a range of articles, and background information that can be clicked to get more information on a particular story.
The Sky News iPad app will also let you watch one video, whilst you are looking through either the timeline or the top stories and you can easily switch between videos. The live TV feature comes with support for Apple’s AirPlay that will let you stream the Sky News Live directly to your Apple TV.
Sky have said that the Sky News iPad app will be free to Sky subscribers, and they are giving it away free to everyone at the moment, so we suspect if you aren’t a Sky subscriber there will be some sort of subscription fee involved in the future.
Have a look at our hands on gallery of the new Sky News iPad app below to get a better idea of some of the features.
