Until 31 December 2010, Sky TV customers in the UK and ROI with the Sky Sports Pack can get Sky Mobile TV on iPhone or iPod Touch for free (usually £6/€7 a month for iPhone), and live channels online for free, (usually only available for free to Sky TV customers with the relevant Sky TV Pack and Sky Broadband Unlimited or Multiroom, otherwise £10 per month).

After 31 December 2010 you will automatically be charged the standard price for Sky Mobile TV until you unsubscribe. One offer for Sky Mobile TV and Sky Player per household.


Have just signed up to this myself and its quality. Will be perfect for ryder cup.

Did it through iphone app, click sign up, then login to sky online account to activate.

NB you will be sent a reminder before you get charged so can then cancel if not wanting to keep.

just keeps saying payment could not be authorized for me. voted cold

I was going to post myself! Basically if u subscribe to sky sports 1 + 2 then you can get it free until 2011. If you get a multiple device registered error then just ring them up and they sort within 24 hours!
You still have to put payment details in which is silly as your paying subscription but just remmeber to unsubscribe before 31 December so that they don't charge you. voted hot from me!

Worked a treat. Hot from me.
I had no problem putting my card details in, I'll just cancel it in december.

Do you have to have all Sky Sports?

I only pay for Sky Sports 1, all the others are rubbish!

Thanks.

I believe Sky 1 & 2 consitute Sky Sports Pack

Cool. I've got Sky Sports. Hot!

Anyone know if you can watch on an iphone AND a PC at the same time? (I know with a PC although you can have 4 registered devices its only one at a time)

Nice deal

nice find

Nice handy to have

handy way to use up your data allowance in a day.

no android

Agreed with limited data allowance these days, whats the point.

Yep, that's so annoying. I travel a lot so getting access to these channels on my iphone is a brilliant concept, but unless you have constant access to wifi it's pretty pointless.

Seeing as you pay £6 a month for this service there really should be some way for that to include the data charges incurred.

*Sigh*

Given me ESPN too (which I am not subscribed too) - now OH will be happy when UFC comes on

Hi guys a few questions

Can these be used with a sky player account? I have the family pack but bought the xbox pack so waiting for that to finish before upgrading to SS package.

Anyway to watch these channels on your TV? As would not mind ESPN

Anyone know if I can use this while abroad? I'll e in the USA in sept and it could come in handy if I'm staying somewhere with wifi.

awesome, thanks

ANYWAY to get this on the htc desire?

Doubt it

I'm pretty sure it works only if your ip originates in the UK

I've subscribed and when I try to watch something it tells me that I have to subscribe. What the hell? Has anyone else had this problem?

Yep had same problem. Phoned SKY I think I got the number from the Mobile TV app. Even though I put in my current login details, for some reason it was still trying to login with the a different SKY ID that I had setup with a previous SKY ID. Rang them up, was moved from dept to dept was sorted in the end.

They are ridiculously expensive 0870 numbers thou and you will usually spend about 40 minutes on the phone getting passed from one moron to another. Can you remember exactly which department sorted you out?

This has to be hot due to getting espn without paid subscription..

Sky's 0870 numbers are free if you have Sky Talk

BT phone not sky

I have it for free now on my PC, iPhone and iPad. Works a treat. Doesn't work overseas though. Best bet if you are going overseas is a Slingbox or a proxy like Astrill which works on systems like iPlayer which use ip detetction but not TVCatchup as this blocks all proxy connections. Not sure about Skyplayer but I think it will be ok.

I'm subscribed to the Sports pack but through Virgin Media -

magicjay, you have been told wrongly, and you are spreading inaccurate information.

This offer is for sky sports customers, it is immaterial whether you have had another trial. This isn't a trial - its just an offer.

Two methods of proof:

1) I've been told by 2 different support persons
2) I paid for iphone access, but not for ipad access (which is different)... now I get access on both - because the offer applies to both. I've had trials in the past.

Please trust me on this - you are wrong, the deal is available to all sky sports subbies.

(by sky sports subs I mean SKY TV customers with the sports pack)

i have had the free trial previously and just subscribed again. payment of £0.00 has been successful.
it says as a sky sports 1&2 customer i will not be charged until 1st jan 2011.
just checked and i am able to watch channels no problem
so open to all not just new subscriptions to the app

I have Sky Sports and a 3GS Iphone, why the hell would someone want to watch Sky on a 3.5" phone screen, this is a load of bullocks and not necessary, are people really too busy to record it on a Sky box and watch it later, seems like people want to do it just for doing it's sake, Let me tell you where I am, I'm Out.

its not working for me, asks me to subscribe?

I used one of the free trials months ago and it's now saying I'll have to pay if I want to use it, has anyone else went through the resubscribe and not been charged?
