Sky Sports adds analysis tools to iPad app

January 8, 2013

Sky Sports has updated its iPad app with users now having access to on-screen analysis tools used during live football coverage.

For the first time, viewers watching live Sky Sports Barclays Premier League matches can access some of the same analysis technology used by Gary Neville and Ed Chamberlin on Ford Monday Night Football.

The new features allow users to get more information on the match using Opta live data, including teams, tactics and individual players. Both the Average Formation Map and Player Touch Map include an adjustable timeline, enabling the user to customise their view to a specific period of play, as well as accessing half time and full time data.  Sky Bet is now integrated too, allowing for quick and easy access to stake a bet on a match.

Sky Sports match expert Gary Neville said of the updates: “Since joining Sky Sports this technology has allowed me to get a greater insight into a match. Now Sky customers can use the data I have at my fingertips, giving them the story behind the result.”
