All New Sky Sports | Your Complete Guide
Sky Sports has been given a serious shake-up, so it only seems right that we take you through the relaunch.
Choose your sport with 10 dedicated Sky Sports channels
The relaunched Sky Sports delivers 10 dedicated channels, covering a massive range of sport. There are channels which focus on certain sports, like Premier League football, and others that provide a specific range.
These channels are designed to give Sky Sports viewers the chance to choose what sport they want as part of their viewing package. You can choose to have one, two or three channels, each on one-month rolling contracts, or take the lot on an 18-month discounted deal.
Exclusive action & flexible pricing
Sky Sports has long led the way in sports broadcasting, with groundbreaking coverage and exclusive action you can't catch anywhere else.
There will be live coverage of football, golf, cricket and F1 that you can't see on any other UK channels. There will also be live Rugby Union, Rugby League, boxing, darts, tennis, NFL and more, as Sky looks to keep up its reputation for broad, exciting and innovative sports coverage.
The pricing for Sky Sports has changed dramatically, and it works out much better for viewers. You can now get Sky Sports for as little as £18 a month, on top of your TV bundle, and individual channels are on a 1-month rolling contract.
It's £18 for one channel, £22 for two, £26 for three, or £20 for them all under an 18-month agreement.
Existing customers don't need to do anything straight away, as the channels have switched over automatically, but those looking to alter their viewing under the new format can just get in touch with Sky to do so.
Sky Sports Premier League
The Sky Sports Premier League channel will show 126 live games from the 2017/18 season. These will air on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as Monday and Tuesday nights.
Some of the biggest matches will be exclusively available, from one of the world's fastest, toughest and most competitive leagues. Everything from the titanic, top of the table clashes to the fierce relegation dogfight will get played out on Sky Sports Premier League.
You'll also get to enjoy the best in-depth analysis, expert punditry, debate, discussion, interviews and highlights.
Sky Sports Football
This is the home of live EFL Championship games throughout the season, as teams bid for promotion in a traditionally close and hard-fought league.
You can also catch live La Liga, Carabao Cup, SPFL and Euro 2020 qualifiers, along with Sky Sports' usual comprehensive analysis and reporting before, during and after each match.
Sky Sports Cricket
Lord's might be the home of cricket, but Sky Sports makes a strong claim. On Sky Sports Cricket you'll be able to watch every home Test, ODI and T20 match, as Root and Morgan lead their sides out against the best from the rest of the world.
You can enjoy entertaining punditry from some of the game's greats, like Shane Warne, Michael Holding and the recently recruited Andrew Flintoff.
Viewers can also catch live domestic cricket matches, as well as coverage of all ICC competitions.
Sky Sports Golf
Sky Sports Golf offers full coverage of the Majors, as well as the European and PGA Tours. There's exclusive action from the Solheim Cup, and the channel will have regular interviews with players and caddies.
For viewers looking to improve their game, there will be golf masterclasses from expert coaches like Butch Harmon.
Sky Sports F1
Sky Sports F1 is the only place to watch every Formula 1® practice, qualifying and race live. Enjoy the latest from the pit lanes, team radio, interviews, analysis and, of course, all the race action live and uninterrupted.
Sky Sports F1 is also available in stunning UHD.
Sky Sports Action & Sky Sports Arena
These channels offer coverage of International and European Rugby Union, Rugby League, tennis, boxing NFL, GAA darts and WWE.
There will be other great shows to complement coverage, like NFL Red Zone and The Gloves Are Off.
Sky Sports Mix
This is another channel offering a variety of sport from around the globe. You'll be able to catch some of the best live moments from huge sporting events, as well as action from new sports and fascinating documentaries.
Sky Sports News HQ
Sky Sports News HQ offers rolling news, 24/7, from the world of sport. You'll get the breaking stories as they happen, as well as highlights, interviews and the latest from social media.
Sky Sports Main Event
Sky Sports Main Event showcases the biggest live events from the range of Sky Sports channels. It could be a huge Premier League derby, or the latest F1 Grand Prix, but if it's a main event then the action will be on this channel.
Sky Sports Main Event is automatically available to customers with the full Sky Sports package.
How much is the new Sky Sports?
If you take one Sky Sports channel then it's £18 a month on top of your TV bundle. The Original Bundle is £22 a month, so the cheapest combined option would be one Sky Sports channel plus that bundle, costing £40 a month.
If you pick two Sky Sports channels then it's £22 a month on top of your TV bundle, and then £26 for three channels.
Taking these channels individually works on a 1-month rolling contract, so you can change your choices easily, or stop Sky Sports altogether with a month's notice.
Take the Complete Sports Pack, with all the Sky Sports channels, and it's £20 a month on a new 18-month contract. So, existing customers would have their contract restarted by choosing this option, but it's a great value choice for sports fans.
Sky Sports in Ultra HD
Customers with the Sky Q 2TB box will be able to watch selected sport in stunning Ultra High Definition. Enjoy the action with up to 4x the definition of HD, and content delivered at up to 2x the frame rate. Colours are smoother and sharper, making for a crisp, vivid viewing experience.
