SkyEspaña is set to close its internet based TV service on 1st September

SkyEspaña launched in 2017 in Spain in order to compete with HBO and Netflix, but appears to have lost that battle for subscribers.

SkyEspaña has twelve “online” channels – Fox, Fox Life, Nicke- lodeon, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Comedy Central, TCM, National Geographic, TNT, SyFy, Calle 13 and Canal Historia – and offers its own content, such as Chernobyl, on demand.

“After an internal review, I have taken the difficult decision to cease activities on 1 September”, states SkyEspaña in a statement. “Sky will cease its activities in Spain on September 1st. For that reason, we have eliminated the process of registration of new users. We are sorry for the inconvenience”, according to the platform’s website. SkyEspaña assures that its users will be able to continue using their accounts with total normality until August 31. However, the platform also said that as of August 10, some of the content will disappear due to the end of the agreements with the suppliers.

This does not affect Sky UK satellite users, or SkyGo users in Spain, and is just the SkyEspaña internet based service.
