Now TV app brings Sky Sports to Apple TV in the UK

UK Apple TV owners can now access live sport following the launch of a Sky Sports app from Now TV. Already available on smartphones, tablets, consoles and its own set-top box, Now TV's Sky Sports Day Pass lets owners of Apple's set-top box access 24 hours of coverage from Sky's six sports channels for £9.99. Although Netflix and Apple's own iTunes Movies channels are live on Apple TV, Sky has not yet brought its own film and entertainment offerings to the platform. We've contacted Sky for comment on its future plans and will update you in due course.
