Sky Sports News to be removed from Freeview — 1 Comment

  1. Sky has said that there are “no plans” to remove Sky News from Freeview, despite the firm changing Sky Sports News to an exclusively pay-TV channel.

    Earlier in the week, Sky confirmed that Sky Sports News will leave the digital terrestrial television platform later in the year to be replaced by an hour timeshift of Sky3.

    There has been speculation that the satellite broadcaster could also remove the ad-funded Sky News channel from Freeview as it increasingly focuses on subscription services.

    However, a Sky spokesman told New Media Age: “We have no plans to remove Sky News from Freeview, nor to change its current funding mechanism.”

    The spokesman also dismissed any suggestion that the Sky Sports News website will soon go behind a paywall, which would require users to subscribe to access the material.
