LIFE NEEDS MORE SPORT! SKY SUPERCHARGES SPORT OFFERING WITH 12 SPORT CHANNELS

Sky is supercharging its already superb sports offering and putting more sport into the lives of New Zealanders, Sky chief executive Martin Stewart has announced.

From 1 August all Sky Sport customers will get 12 dedicated sport channels, including:

  • Dedicated homes for Rugby, Cricket, Golf and Football – and channels that strongly feature Netball, League, Motorsport and more
  • A new Sky Sport News channel
  • The two ESPN channels

All 12 channels will be in HD, offering our customers a brilliant viewing experience.

There will be more great features and documentaries, highlights through the Sky Sport Highlights app, and continued access to On Demand sport via an enhanced and improved Sky Go.

There will also be additional pop-up channels for major events like the Australian Tennis Open and Tokyo Olympics Games.

Martin Stewart said “We’re supercharging Sky Sport. The enhancements are designed for the millions of New Zealanders who love sport.

“We already have nationwide reach and a reliable service that we know our customers value. By enhancing the channel line-up we’re giving them even more sport, better content discovery, and in glorious HD as well.

“The depth and breadth of our sports offer is second to none, and we continue to add more. We were delighted to announce our six-year deal with Cricket Australia last week, including the iconic Boxing Day Tests back for the first time since 1987, and there’s more to come.

“Delivering the best sport to our customers and helping our sports partners grow their sport is what we’re here for.

“The Sky Sport News channel is an exciting new initiative. We will have daily news from New Zealand and around the world, expert opinion and analysis, exclusive interviews, and a raft of features to keep every keen sports fan ‘in the know’.”

Sky Sport News will be live from 1 August, and our special local shows will start on 2 September.
