Sky Sports iPad app gets Ashes makeover with Hawk-Eye access

New Sky Sports Ashes Event Centre lets you analyse decisions and rewind the action so you don’t miss a single delivery.

Cricket-lovers planning to tune into the Ashes on Sky Go via an iPad will be able to access the new Ashes Event Centre to play with new features while you watch the action unfold live.

In what Sky Sports is calling a ‘second-screen cricket experience’, the Ashes Event Centre will let users view the same statistics that the Sky Sports commentary team will have access to during the five test series.

You’ll also be able to use the Hawk-Eye review system to do your own analysis on the game-changing decisions made by the third umpire.

If you happen to miss a wicket or a face-off between Joe Root and David Warner, the new timeline feature will let you re-watch the action simply by stepping back in time.

Forming part of Sky Sports’ comprehensive coverage of the Investec Ashes Series 2013 this summer, the Ashes Event Centre can be found inside the current Sky Sports app and will be free to download for Sky Sports subscribers.

If you don’t have Sky, but do own an iPad, you’ll need to pay £4.99 to unlock the Ashes content from the in-app purchases section. If you don’t own an iPad but do subscribe to Sky Sports, you can get check out the new features via the Sky website.

The Ashes iPad app follows in the footsteps of similar offerings introduced by Sky Sports to accompany its coverage of Formula 1 and Premier League football giving users access to the same stats and tools used by Sky Sports presenters and pundits.
