Sky Sports packages
You can get the Complete Sky Sports Pack, which includes all 10 dedicated Sky Sports channels, as well as everything from the Original Bundle. This gives you a range of entertainment channels, including the popular Sky Atlantic, alongside the exclusive sports coverage.
You can also add Sky Sports to other viewing packages, so you could choose the Variety Bundle, for more entertainment channels including music and documentaries, or the Box Sets Bundle for over 350 Sky Box Sets and inclusive high definition channels.
The Complete Bundle gives you Sky Sports and Sky Cinema, as well as the entertainment channels and Box Sets.
What’s on Sky Sports?
In the 2017/18 season there are 126 Premier League games, including a number of Top Picks, which are the prize games for a sports coverage provider.
Soccer AM is Sky Sports’ entertaining morning football show on Saturdays, whilst Gilette Soccer Saturday sees Jeff Stelling and his regulars take you through the afternoon action.
Super Sunday usually sees two live games, with extensive coverage, interviews, analysis and features, whilst the new Friday Night Football will focus on one game.
Every F1 race of the season is live on Sky Sports F1, as well as all the qualifying, and there’s always plenty of race build-up, grid-walking, pit lane reporting and interviews to enjoy.
England cricket is live and exclusive, with Test, One-Day and T20 matches, and you can catch county cricket, as well as other huge international matches between the likes of South Africa, Australia and the West Indies.
Sky Sports cost
Customers are able to choose one dedicated Sky Sports channel for £18, two for £22 and three for £26. With the Original Bundle at £22, it means the cheapest Sky Sports option would cost £40 (£22+£18). However, Sky offers the Complete Sports Pack, with every Sky Sports channel, for just £20 a month on top of your TV bundle. This effectively restarts your contract; when you take all the channels it's a new 18-month contract, whereas the individual channels are sold as 1-month add-ons.
There are often introductory rates and discounts, so look out for these making Sky Sports cheaper for a limited time.
Sky Sports HD
You can enjoy Sky Sports in stunning high definition by choosing HD with your Sky viewing. This means choosing the Box Sets Bundle, and that gives you more than 50 channels in HD as well as over 350 box sets.
If you choose Sky Q then this opens up Ultra HD, which offers a new standard for crisp, clear home viewing. The picture quality is enhanced, with smoother colours, bringing you an even better experience.
You’ll need a 4K Ultra HD screen, as well as the Sky Q 2TB box and a Sky Q Multiscreen subscription. You can then watch Sky Cinema and Sky Sports in Ultra HD, as long as you have those packages.
