Sky introduces cheaper sports packages

Sky unveils Sports channels shake-up

Sky Sports News and Sky Sports Mix will remain, and be free for all Sky customers. "We're improving our service even further, super-serving existing customers and providing flexibility to a whole new generation of sports fans", he noted.

A marquee channel for all the very best stuff has been birthed too, it's called Sky Sports Main Event and honestly, it's hard to come up with a worse name for a TV channel.

Live Premier League football plus global qualifiers and the biggest games from the EFL and La Liga, every F1® race, Ryder Cup and major golf tournaments, England Test cricket, worldwide rugby union, World Darts Championship and more.

From 18 July, Now TV customers - alongside regular Sky and other paid TV customers with Sky Sports packages - will be able to get the all-new Sky Sports channels as part of Now TV Sky Sports Passes.

It will also offer a better digital experience on one Sky Sports app.

As expected, Sky has unveiled a major revamp of its sports channels.




In addition to the new branding and lineups, new programming will be introduced on select channels, including debate and analysis shows.

One channel is available for £18, two for £22 and three for £26.

Meanwhile a new channel, Sky Sports Arena, will host a range of other content including rugby and tennis. Earlier this month, meanwhile, the National Football League (NFL) announced a new partnership with Bruin Sports Capital and WPP to help drive the growth of its NFL Game Pass in 61 European countries and territories. "Sky Sports is giving customers even more choice and channels at the same price", he added.

Viewers will enjoy a host of new programmes, including: a nightly Premier League debate show on Sky Sports Premier League, masterclasses and coaching clinics from some of the biggest names in sport including Shane Warne, Butch Harmon and Rob Key, live golf previews ahead of selected European and U.S. events, and a host of new documentaries.

For the first time, Sky Sports will also offer something for fans not looking for the full breadth of sports, but are still interested in specific ones.
