Nokia, Sky bring live football matches to phones Nokia and Sky have teamed up to introduce a new application that will give smartphone users a way to watch live Premiership football matches on their Nokia handsets.
The app is free from the Ovi Store, and will also allow users to watch on-demand highlights, or program their Sky+ boxes to record the games.

So far, the app is compatible with the Nokia N97, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and the Nokia 5530, with Nokia 5230 and X6 support expected soon. 10 other handsets will get a watered down version without live broadcasts but with the other features.

Rupert Englander of Nokia adds (via PCAdvisor): "Modern lifestyles have driven demand for great mobile content and services on-the-go, and it's great to know that this app will make a real difference to Nokia users."

David Gibbs, general manager for mobile at Sky, continues: "We're delighted to be working with Nokia to give millions more people the chance to enjoy TV on the move. The success of Sky Mobile TV has shown there's a real appetite for innovative services that allow customers to choose when and where they watch".
