Sky1 to launch FREE online voting for Got To Dance 2013 live shows

Got To Dance

Fans of Got To Dance will be able to support their favourite acts for free for the first time ever in 2013, it has been announced.

Public voting on the Sky1 talent contest has been dirt cheap since it started, with phone calls costing only 5p from a BT landline.

But this year there will be no excuse not to get involved, as the broadcaster plans to allow viewers to vote without charge on its website.

Got To Dance previously became the first UK show to introduce a mobile voting app for Apple's iPhone, which allowed users to buy bundles of fourteen votes as in-app purchases through the iTunes Store.

However, it is unclear whether or not the app will return after a technical fault left more than 1,800 people unable to use up their bundles during this year's final, which was won by Prodijig.

ITV show Britain's Got Talent experienced similar problems when it introduced its own app in April.

Got To Dance returns for its fourth series on January 6th at 6.00pm on Sky1 (HD), with JLS star Aston Merrygold joining the judging panel.
