Sky offers live football and cricket action to Vodafone 3G phones

Mobile phones

  The problem with the summer is that it’s occasionally too nice weather-wise to site in and watch the TV. If you’ve got a 3G phone with Vodafone, you can keep up with the football and cricket action as it happens whilst topping up your tan.

Sky Sports and Vodafone UK will offer live international cricket and the Football League Playoffs to Vodafone live! customers through the Sky Mobile TV service. It’s the first time in the UK that live football matches will be shown simultaneously live on mobile and on TV – and it starts with the Semi-Finals of the Championship Playoffs this Saturday (6th May).

In the first month, around 100 hours of coverage will be scheduled, including 15 live football matches and three live Test matches. Live cricket will continue through the summer until the final Test against Pakistan in September.
