BSkyB has struck a deal with Apple which will bring live sports to your iPhone. Presuming you have an iPhone that is. As of today, Sky Mobile TV will be made available to iPhone and iPod Touch owners via a new application at the Apple App Store. Via a Wi-Fi connection and the app (which is free to download, incidentally) users will be allowed to stream live TV from a range of channels including the Sky Sports, Sky Sports News, ESPN, At The Races and Sky News.
