New Times Sports App launched

The Times and The Sunday Times have become the first British newspapers to launch an App solely dedicated to their renowned, world-class sporting coverage. The Times Sport App keeps members up-to-date with all the latest live sports news at home, work and on the move via tablet and smartphone.

Existing members of any print or digital pack from The Times or The Sunday Times will be able to download the free App containing breaking sports news, live match commentary as well as insight, analysis and world-class writing from its great journalists including Mike Atherton, Lawrence Dallaglio and Matthew Syed.

The new App is part of The Times and The Sunday Times’ commitment to sport and innovation, delivering even greater value to their members. In addition to outstanding, award-winning journalism and sports coverage, it will include highlights of all England’s home cricket matches including today’s Royal London One Day International between England and Sri Lanka, alongside the existing highlights for the Aviva Premiership Rugby and the FA Cup.

Alan Hunter, Head of Digital for The Times and The Sunday Times, said:

“The launch of Times Sport is another example of why The Times and Sunday Times are the home of quality sports coverage. Our unrivalled journalism will now be enhanced with near-live clips and highlights from a range of sports. Nobody else provides such a complete sporting package. During the mouth-watering summer of sport we have to look forward to, I am confident that Times Sport will be the only place to keep up with all the action.”

Suzi Watford, Marketing Director for The Times and The Sunday Times, said:

“This is the perfect accompaniment to our daily edition keeping our members up-to-date with all the latest action wherever they are. Combined with our award winning journalism and video highlights in our tablet edition this makes The Times and Sunday Times the first-choice for sports fans.”
