Live Wire is something a little bit different to what I usually do BUT I thought it was worth a special shout out. I’ve always been on the lookout for an app I could install on my iPhone or iPad so I could watch TV on the go whenever I’m out; however I never found one reliable enough. Android users have always had Mobdro, a neat little app with various different video streams; it was the Apple users who missed out.
Your iPhone or iPad does NOT need to be jailbroken. Currently tested and working on 9.3.3 firmware.
Live Wire cannot be downloaded from the iTunes app store because its not considered whitehat. The method used in this tutorial takes the IPA file which you manually sign with Cydia Impactor. Essentially making your iOS device think that you’re the developer of the app and allowing it permission.
Channels on Live Wire are as follows:
- Sky Sports 1-5
- Sky Sports News
- Sky Sports F1
- Sky Movies Premier
- BT Sports 1 & 2
- Box Nation
- Sky Atlantic
- Sky 1
Q: Why do I have to login to Cydia Impactor using my iTunes account? Is it safe?
A: It is 100% safe. Cydia Impactor does not store your account or sending it over an internet connection. It simply puts these credentials into the IPA so when it installs on you’re device it knows that “you’re” the developer.
This add-on is brand new so I have no idea how long it will last, or what its future holds as its obviously a work in progress. Please don’t post negative feedback if the add-on suddenly stops working as its out of my control.
This tutorial is both Windows/Mac compatible
