I don't have a tv or sky but I would love to be able to live stream to my iOS devices cricket & warriors matches that I want to watch on a pay per view type basis. Do you think this will ever happen??

I've tried Justin tv but it's pretty unreliable. Are there any other options until sky put something together??

Could try OnLive's service for $4.99/month. Get full blown Windows 7 desktop with IE9 that has full flash support via OnLive's free iPad app and then use iSky login to watch live sports.

Am I right in thinking you need to subscribe to basic & sky sport packages to be able to do this??

Yes that is correct. Previously you needed multi room as well on top of  sky sports subscription in order to watch live sports on iSky. I am pretty sure this is not the case anymore and multi room is not needed for live sports on iSky.

If you have a PC and Sky in the house already, you can use an app like Splashtop Streamer to stream iSky (with audio) to your iDevice. That's what I do, and it works extremely well (or would when iSky isn't buffering...)
