An increasing number of people are choosing to watch Sky Sports online. 

The broadcaster, which allows subscribers to stream its sports channels through its Sky Go service, reported there were more than 16 million viewing sessions on the platform during the recent Ashes cricket series. 

It was the end of the second Test on July 21st that attracted the most attention, with more than 250,000 unique users accessing over one million live views. 

Sky also reported increased numbers of people using its Sky Sports News app and Football Score Centre. 

David Gibbs director of Sky Sports Digital, commented: "We see a huge appetite from our customers to watch and get closer to the biggest sporting events via their digital devices - whether that's their iPad at home, or desktop PC at work."

A fast and reliable internet connection is necessary to use live streaming services such as Sky Go, if this is something you're lacking why not switch to satellite broadband?
