Sky Deutschland has revealed plans to add HD channels to its sports app for the iPad. From the start of October the German pay-TV broadcaster will allow subscribers to view Sky Sport HD 1 and Sky Sport HD 2 on Apple’s tablet.

Subscribers will be able to follow Sky’s live coverage of all domestic games of the Bundesliga while they are on the go. Brian Sullivan, CEO of Sky Deutschland said “The Sky Sport iPad app was a true innovation when it was launched last June for the World Cup”. He added “Now with the addition of our Sky Sports HD channels we are once again bringing our customers a world first – taking the fantastic viewing experience of Sky HD out of the home and putting it right in their hands, wherever they want to watch.”

As well as Sky Sport 1, Sky Sport 2, the app also provides live-streaming of Sky Bundesliga and Sky Sport Austria. In addition to the Bundesliga coverage, Sky’s sports channels will show games from the Champions League, DFB Cup, Europa League and international football such as the English Premier League. Other sports included are golf, ice-hockey, tennis and other sports.

The sports app in HD is available free to subscribers who have already signed up for Sky Sport or Sky Bundesliga in connection with HD. As an introductory special offer, all Sky subscribers will be able to use the app for free for the remainder of 2010.
