Sky Sports is to roll out a series of upgrades across its apps and online channels on Tuesday August 12th - the day the new Sky Sports 5 channel launches.

The broadcaster is pledging to offer "more content, more functionality and more ways for users to enjoy their sport".

Additional features to enhance functionality, content and ways to personalise include a refresh to Football Score Centre - Sky Sports' most popular app.

This will gain a new video section, enhanced match coverage including team form, previews, match video and stats, and a broader set of mobile push notifications for up to four separate teams and individual matches.

An upgraded version of the Sky Sports for iPad app will also be released.

This will feature a Sky Sports News HQ second-screen experience, with catch-up video and content, alongside the live channel and club personalisation for rugby union and rugby league news feeds.

In addition, the mobile apps for iPhone and Android will now highlight breaking news and include user polls.

Live streaming of Sky Sports 5, alongside the other Sky Sports channels, will be available for Sky Sports subscribers on the iPhone.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports has updated its skysports.com website with a new design, featuring live polls that feed into Sky Sports News HQ coverage.

David Gibbs, Director of Sky Sports Digital Media, said the aim is to make Sky Sports "the destination of choice" for sports fans wherever they are - at home or on the go.

"Therefore we’re bringing more content and functionality to all our apps and website with more of the features users love like video content, personalisation, stats, polls, enhanced match coverage and notifications," he stated.

"Ahead of our biggest-ever football season - with more of the games that matter in the Barclays Premier League, the Ryder Cup, Formula 1, rugby union and more - Sky Sports customers will be up-to-date wherever they are."
