Sky customers with existing Sky Sports packages will get all the channels at no extra cost.

"It's about making sure we continue to offer an outstanding live sport experience for sports fans, helping landlords to make money through live sport by encouraging even more customers through the door", David Rey, managing director of Sky Business said. There's also Sky Sports Premier League, which is for the slightly better round kicking players.

From 18 July, Now TV customers - alongside regular Sky and other paid TV customers with Sky Sports packages - will be able to get the all-new Sky Sports channels as part of Now TV Sky Sports Passes.

Chief Executive of Sky UK and Ireland Stephen van Rooyen said Sky is dedicated to offer customers "unrivalled service".

The best worldwide rugby union, rugby league, boxing, darts, NFL, tennis and more will feature on the new Sky Sports Action and Arena channels, while our Main Event channel dedicated to the biggest live events - exclusively available to customers with the full range of Sky Sports channels - means you won't miss the big moments, whatever the sport.

Along with with all the footballing action there will be the usual mix of European Rugby Union, Rugby League, Tennis, Boxing, NFL, GAA, Darts and WWE.


But for BT TV customers the news is now less positive.

One channel pack will be available for just £18 per month, two for £22 and three for £26.

The complete line-up includes - Sky Sports Main Event (Channel 401), (Channel 403), Sky Sports Cricket (Channel 404), Sky Sports Golf (Channel 405), Sky Sports F1 (Channel 406), Sky Sports Action (Channel 407), Sky Sports Arena (Channel 408), and Sky Sports News (Channel 409).


You can find out more details about all of the new Sky Sports channels coming to Now TV over at their website at the link below.

For the first time, Sky Sports will also offer something for fans not looking for the full breadth of sports, but are still interested in specific ones.

Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Football are among 10 Sky Sports channels that will launch next month as part of a summer shake-up to bring you closer to the sports that have you on the edge of your seat.
