READY, SET, STREAM: SKY ANNOUNCES NEW SPORTS STREAMING APP

Kiwi sports fans will soon be able to watch Sky Sport’s full line up of 12 sport channels, whenever and wherever it suits, with the launch of Sky’s new sport streaming service, Sky Chief Executive Martin Stewart has announced.

“Sky was the first company to bring sport streaming to New Zealand, first with Sky Go and then Fan Pass. Fan Pass has efficiently streamed four sports channels 24/7 for the last 4½ years, but we know sports fans are looking for more.

“Today we are supercharging it. We have already delivered cheaper pricing for it, and from 14 August we will replace it with our new sports app, Sky Sport Now.

Sky Sport Now will have:

  • All 12 Sky Sport channels (compared to the 4 channels on Fan Pass), including dedicated homes for Rugby, Cricket, Football and Golf; and channels that strongly feature Netball, League, Motorsport and more; and the two ESPN channels
  • The new Sky Sport News channel, with 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’
  • The ability to link to a big screen
  • Flexible pricing, with weekly and monthly prices, and a special annual deal
  • Access to replays, highlights, features and documentaries on demand
  •  A great new stats section, with results, fixtures, tables and top performers.

Martin Stewart said “I announced last month that we are accelerating our focus on streaming services. Sky Sport Now is the first evidence of that strategy. It’s a superb sport streaming offer, and we want it to be in hands of every Kiwi sports fan, wherever they are.

“Sports fans are increasingly mobile, and often time poor. Young fans in particular are looking for a range of experiences. Sky Sport Now is one way we can make sport more accessible, exciting and appealing


“We want to delight our customers every day, and we want to be in hands of every New Zealander.”

Sky Sport Now will be available from 14 August, and can be purchased for:

  • Week Pass $19.99
  • Month Pass $49.99
  • 12 Month Pass $39.99 per month
