Connecting the World of Sport with New Zealand’s Home of Sport

Sky will launch a new Sky Sport News channel which will broadcast the latest sports news from New Zealand and across the globe 24/7, Sky Chief Executive Martin Stewart has announced.

It will show live sports news bulletins from New Zealand and around the world including Fox Sports News Australia and Sky Sports News UK, along with breaking news and live press conferences.

Like all Sky Sport channels, Sky Sport News will broadcast in HD.

Martin Stewart says: “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 engaged.

“We’ll also be launching brand new Sky Sport News shows, including an exciting morning news service, live from our state-of-the-art Auckland studios in September, drawing on the resources of our world-renowned Sky Sport crew.

“I’m also pleased to announce that talented broadcasters Kate King and Goran Paladin will be joining us as presenters. They will be joined by some other exciting local talent, so watch this space.”

The channel will be live from 1 August, and our special local shows will start on 2 September.
