Sky Sports for iPad

from £5/month, skysports.com

Thanks to the internet, you 
no longer need to strap a satellite dish to your head in order to watch Sky TV on the go. That’s good for two reasons: you never looked particularly good in hats, and it means the existence of Sky Sports for iPad. Aside from its day-to-day delivery of backpage headlines and action, the app comes to life during Champions League games (allowing you to watch two matches simultaneously) and F1 Grand Prix, when it turns your iPad into race control, with multiple video feeds to choose from and live timing. The only way you’re likely to get closer to the action is by attempting to cling on to Lewis Hamilton’s back wing.
