Sky Sports Mobile TV
Sky Sports Mobile TV brings every second of the action from Sky Sports 1 and 2 to your mobile, along with round the clock updates from Sky Sports News HQ. So what’s on offer this month? As usual, Sky has the lion’s share of the month’s live and exclusive matches, games and tests this March, with no shortage of highlights for fans of all kinds.
Sky Sports Mobile TV members can catch six live and exclusive matches from the Barclays Premier League this month, and there are some huge fixtures in the list including Liverpool vs Man City, Chelsea vs Southampton and Man Utd vs Spurs. In the Sky Bet Championship, meanwhile, Sky Sports is the only place you’ll be able to watch Norwich square off against Ipswich and Wolves play Derby, among others.
Before all that, though, there’s the final of the Live Capital One Cup on 1 March, with Chelsea and Tottenham duelling to take home the trophy.
Football not your bag? No problem: there are four live and exclusive showdowns from the Pool Stage of the Live ICC World Cup, with England playing both Bangladesh and Afghanistan. In rugby, meanwhile, there are three exclusive matches from the Live First Utility Super League: Hull FC vs Leeds Rhinos, Warrington Wolves vs Leeds Rhinos and St Helens vs Warrington Wolves. All in all, it’s a packed month for sports fans.
Spring hasn’t sprung just yet, but we should soon be out of the woods when it comes to the weather. With the days finally lengthening and the sky turning bluer each morning, you’ll need a soundtrack to match the shifting seasons. And that’s where Spotify proves invaluable. With over 40 million tracks available to stream to your phone, and with thousands of playlists created and curated by the Spotify team and its users alike, you’re sure to find a beat to match the blossoming climate.
Need some songs that put a spring in your step? Here are a few exceptionally cheery, seasonal playlists, hand-picked by the guys at Spotify:
1. Feelin’ Good
And while you stream one of the playlists above, why not take a minute to ingest a small chunk of music news? In case you missed the headlines, February played host to the 2015 Grammies – the biggest awards show in the music biz calendar, and a huge number of Spotify’s most popular artists collected accolades for the music that’s rocked us over the past year. The real star of the show was Beck, the man of many instruments who routinely mixes flavours of folk, pop, funk, soul, hip hop, alternative rock, country, and psychedelia together into one seamless package.
Beck’s album Morning Phase scooped he Album of the Year gong, and you can stream it right here.
