Because today is the 13th. I guess they will roll it out at midnight, it should be all done and ready to press the go button. I hope Sky subscribers can get it, unlike Fanpass which we can't. I'd like to give it a real world test with the week pass, if its on ATV4

Agreed. I'll be pushing to be allowed to try it. I am keen to see how it looks.

I’m actually quite excited about this. Ditched Sky about 5 years ago after being a founding subscriber and have been using Fanpass. Be good to see what they can do, as they were at risk of losing to spark sport

Email from Yesterday:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you ready for more sport?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don't forget on August 14, FAN PASS is becoming Sky Sport Now! Because life needs more sport, we’re bringing you more of what you love.

Sky Sport Now will bring you:
• 12 dedicated sport channels (including 10 Sky Sport and 2 ESPN channels)
• Offering more sport than ever before
• 4 channels bringing you the home of Rugby, Cricket, Golf and Football
• 5 channels to feature Netball, League, Motorsport, Extreme Sports and Local Sports
• Sky Sport News
• Highlights and Replays, Features and Documentaries on demand
• New Stats section with results, fixtures, tables, top performers on web and mobile
• Available on a range of big and small screen devices
• Pay-Per-View events

As part of this change, we’re removing the Mobile Pass. As a Mobile Pass customer, we will hold your current Mobile Pass price for 6 months, and give you access to all that Sky Sport Now has to offer. After 6 months (or if you cancel before then and want to resubscribe), you will need to select a new pass option. But don’t worry we will get in touch closer to the time and let you know your options.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO? Get ready to explore a bigger world of sport. On August 14 your app will ask you to update to give you access to Sky Sport Now. Everything else we will take care of.

I'm wondering if it's worth signing up to the 6 month, $39/pm plan while it's still available.

 

From tomorrow it's either week/month/year I think.

Sky has announced its cricket coverage.  From the end of October to March.

 

Nine tests

 

Nine ODI's

 

One Hundred and Twenty Six T20's.

 

 

 

Hard to believe that there are so few ODI's in the calendar these days.  At least T20's are streamable.   Streaming an ODI or a test?  Ugh.

Was it just the mobile fanpass users that got sent the emails, or have others received emails notifying them of the changes? 

 

I'm only aware of the changes happening due to this post in Geekzone - I was expecting some form of "Fan pass is changing" type of splash on the fanpass website?

Checking via the live chat - I asked if the service would be true on demand (so I could re-watch something that screened earlier on in the day) and the response was:

 

we will provide highlights and replays rather than on demand

 

So - sounds essentially like streaming the existing sky channels over the internet.  The highlights I've found a bit hit and miss on the existing Fanpass (not least due to the score bugs been missing during a "highlights" session)
