Sky Q users are being treated to an update today with the satellite TV firm announcing the launch of another new app on its set-top box. Now, before you start rushing to switch on this device in the hope that Apple TV+ is finally coming to Sky Q we have some bad news for you. Despite recent rumours that this latest streaming service is set to join Netflix, Disney+ and Prime Video on Sky’s Q service this latest news isn’t about watching movies or endless episodes of Ted Lasso.
Instead, it’s all about golf. Yes, Sky is launching something called GolfPass on its platform which is aimed at helping customers improve every aspect of their game. This app, which can be found by simply saying “GolfPass” into your Sky Q voice remote, has been created by legend Rory McIlroy and includes top tips and hundreds of exclusive videos.
In fact, there are more than 4,000 hours of golf lessons and instructional content from the world’s best players and coaches all available at the press of a button.
The app is divided into two sections; WATCH and LEARN and gives GolfPass members access to a raft of golf content on their TVs.
If you fancy giving it a try then you will have to reach for your wallet with GolfPass costing £4.99 a month or £49 if you pay upfront for a year. Sky VIP members can get £20 off the price meaning it costs just £29.
There is a 7-day free trial of the service which lets you try before you buy.
Speaking about the service, Four-time Major Champion and GolfPass Founder Rory McIlroy said: “We’re thrilled that GolfPass has launched on Sky Q, giving aspiring players top tips from pros and leading coaches from across the world. Over the last year we have seen a large uptake in the game from a grass-roots level which is great to see – and it’s fantastic to be able to provide golfers old and new with tips to improve their game from their living room”.
And Fraser Stirling, Group Chief Product Officer, Sky added: ”Perfect for anyone golf obsessed like me, GolfPass joins some great fitness entertainment apps already on Sky Q and is packed with tips and exclusive content to help you improve your technique, so you can say goodbye to Duffs and keep it on the Fairway.”
GolfPass now joins a swath of other apps on Sky Q including FiiT, Peleton and ROXi.
