Split-screen F1 viewing hits Sky Sports iPad app

The latest Sky Sports F1 app update will feature split-screen technology allowing viewers to watch two different camera angles at the same time

 

Sky’s F1 companion experience via the Sky Sports for the iPad app will now include split-screen technology, allowing viewers to select two live camera feeds to watch simultaneously.

With a choice of feeds including a selection of on-board driver cameras, the latest Sky Sports update will see avid F1 fans handed far more control of their Grand Prix viewing experience.

The update, which is available to download now, sees the long awaited multiscreen viewing features released just ahead of this weekend’s 2012 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix and should prove to be a valuable asset to any F1 fan.

“The Sky Sports for iPad app – which has already received more than half a million downloads - is yet another example of how Sky Sports continues to innovate to bring an even richer viewing experience to customers,” said David Gibbs, Director of Sky Sports Digital Media.

He added: “The update to the Formula 1companion experience will allow customers to get even more out of our Formula 1 coverage through innovative split-screen technology, which we also plan to introduce as part of our companion app experience for other sports including football and golf later this year.”

Other new features integrated in the update include TV Guide integration, a Remote Record function should you have forgotten to set your Sky+ box at home as well as bespoke team pages for county and international cricket.

The updated Sky Sports for iPad app is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore. The app is also available to non-Sky customers on a standalone basis for £4.99 per month through In-App Purchase.
