In Europe they take football – what we Americans know as soccer – as seriously as many Americans take football – what we Americans call football. So when U.K. satellite service Sky Sports announced that it plans to offer all of its 92 Barclays Premier League matches on mobile this is big news indeed! Sky Sports 1, 2 and 3 will be available via the Sky Mobile TV series as simulcast channels.
Launched in November of 2005, and at the time said to be the largest 3G mobile TV service in Europe, Sky Mobile TV lets customers receive more than 30 mobile TV channels including news, music and entertainment… and now football! The service is currently available to 3G subscribers to Vodafone U.K., Vodafone Ireland and Orange networks. Additionally the service is expected to launch on T-Mobile in the coming weeks.
