Sky Sports+ launching in August

Launching this August, Sky Sports+ will transform the amount of choice sports fans have, all at no extra cost. Sky Sports+ is more than a new app. It gives us the capability to show up to 100 live events concurrently via live streams, a new dedicated channel and our revamped app for TV and Mobile. 


Integrated into your Sky TV, streaming service NOW, and revamped Sky Sports mobile app, Sky Sports+ will make it easier for fans to browse, discover and watch the sport they love. With more coverage than ever before from the EFL, both tennis Tours and men’s Super League, Sky Sports customers can enjoy over 50% more live sport this year.

The scale of Sky Sports+ will be on full display on the opening weekend of the 2024/25 season, with every game from across all three divisions - the Championship, League One and League Two - streamed live, making it a first in broadcasting history. 


That includes:


  • Your favourite EFL team live on Sky Sports at least 20 times a season.

  • Over 1,000 EFL matches, including every Carabao Cup game.

  • Incredible tennis from 100 tournaments across the US Open, WTA and ATP tours.

  • Every match from the Men’s Super League.


Once Sky Sports+ goes live, customers with a full Sky Sports subscription won’t need to do a thing; Sky Sports+ will simply drop into your existing Sky experience, across Sky Glass, Sky Stream, Sky Q, and NOW.

The recently revamped Sky Sports app will also become the ultimate home of sports streaming. New personalisation features will help fans follow their favourite teams and competitions more easily and an improved multi-sports scores section will offer fixtures, live scores and an extended view beyond the usual seven-day football calendar. 


Please note: Only customers with the complete Sky Sports pack will get access to Sky Sports+ at no extra cost. Anybody with individual sports packs will need to upgrade.
