@CHUCKY1  You might get the linear channel (this is yet to be confirmed though) but not the extra streams and additional features without using the sky sports mobile app

Sky+ isn't included in Sky's article here: https://www.skygroup.sky/en-gb/article/introducing-sky-sports-giving-more-choice-to-sports-fans-via-...

 

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

 

But that might simply be because Sky+ is a legacy platform which doesn't feature in Sky's news articles....

It's because Sky+ boxes are not capable of receiving the streams for the new sports service.

The article says there will be a linear channel too.

I would assume the linear channel would be available but the other streams will not.
