Sky News will launch a pop-up channel to cover the the trial of Derek Chauvin.
The former Minnesota police officer goes on trial on two counts of murder and one count of manslaughter for the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in the city of Minneapolis last May.
Sky will livestream the courtroom footage in its entirety on the dedicated TV channel and across its digital channels starting from Monday 29th March.
Chauvin was filmed with his knee on his neck of George Floyd for nearly nine minutes while he was handcuffed and pleading that he couldn’t breathe. The video was shared around the world and sparked months of protests against racial injustice and police brutality.
Using a virtual gallery, the Court TV footage will be streamed live from 3pm to 11pm BST Monday to Friday for the duration of the trial.
George Floyd Killing: The Trial will be available in the UK and ROI on Sky channel 524 and online through the Sky News website and app.
