Up to date news and gossip 24/7

What I appreciate about Sky News items is the length of each item that are not too long. Also, for further reading on a particular news story, there are easy to use highlighted links taking me to similar topics. This is especially the case for Brexit, World News and Politics. Also the short videos bring the news stories to life on my iPhone and iPad.

Sky News is so much more interesting and engaging than any other news app and their reporters get right to the scene of a natural disaster, for example, when others sit in the safety of their studio. An example is Yemen and Syria where their foreign correspondents are literally with the soldiers on the front line. This makes their reporting credible which is a value I think has been lost to other mediocre news sources.

Sky News app is easy to use too with so much choice that I could spend hours and hours reading different news stories. This is good providing a breadth and depth to the headline stories of day. If like me you like credible and accurate news then Sky News app is for you.

Friends inside my tv.

I am 83 years old. I don’t feel it and luckily I am free of even the tiniest of pain. I live on my own with my cat Kit.
My name is Gerry Maycock, and I live in a bungalow in New Milton, Hampshire.
Sky News are the friends I rely upon to inform, explain, and show me that the world is alive,and kicking, despite having this awful virus permeating and polluting our air at the moment.
I rely on Sky News to tell me everything that is happening on the world stage and here In my country that I love and respect.
I only watch Sky News now as they always seem to be there with what we all want to know the minute it happens. The newscasters etc are my friends that I see and listen to from first thing in the morning to last thing at night.
I no longer buy Newspapers, because I know anything of interest will be on Sky News, and usually before the other news channels.
I do not have Sky TV as such. I am only on State Pension and can not afford the subscription.
Sky News is free to all. That’s wonderful.
Breaking News, it is I. 35 am here in England and I am still watching updates of the days events. If you want to be first to see and hear 24 hours a day. This the channel to trust and watch. Thank you Sky News!

Scammer are on your app

Some time when I am on your app and I go on to the Breaking news feed I will the get redirected to a web page that is lucky?somthing can not remember the correct name. Upon their web page opening it tells me congratulations you have been selected to win a iPhone 11. It gives me my network provider and my IP address also then when you shut this down it then promptly flashes up a second alert to tell me I have 36 viruses detected on my smart phone witch is absolutely stupid talk. This is very hard to achieve as I have an Apple iPhone and they have built in security and are very very hard to hack ?? Stupid con artists are at work again trying to rip people off and get there bank details. Now this happens because of people that are paying sky to advertise their product on your website. And Sky cannot be bothered to even check if they are a reputable company doing a reputable thing they’re just more than happy to take the third-party’s is money and put their advert on your site. Shame on you for letting all your customers down and also putting them in harms way. I have always had fantastic service from Sky and I have been a customer for over 20 years but I can say this is the most disgusting-ish thing I have ever seen SORT IT OUT ASAP FROM A LOYAL CUSTOMER
