Sky Sports second-screen Ashes Event Centre

July 9, 2013

Sky Sports has launched its first ever second-screen cricket experience giving users access to the same match analysis technology used by the Sky commentary team during live matches.

The new Ashes Event Centre allows Sky Sports viewers to watch live ball-by-ball coverage at home or on the move and relive all the key moments via the session’s timeline, accompanied by the same match statistics used in the commentary box.

The Ashes Event Centre also features an integrated Hawk-Eye app giving fans the ability to review every ball virtually via a host of Hawk-Eye analysis tools, as used on screen in Sky Sport’s live coverage.

David Gibbs, Director of Sky Sports Digital Media, commented: “The Ashes Event Centre is the UK’s most advanced second screen cricket app and allows Sky Sports subscribers to keep up with the defining moments of each and every Test Match. It’s the first time we’ve offered a dedicated second screen experience for our cricket coverage and it’s another example of our investment in the Sky Sports viewer’s experience.”
