Sky Sports Plus

Sky Sports+ will launch in August to give more choice to fans via live streams, app and new channel.

Viewers can enjoy more than 50% more live sport this year at no extra cost.

The opening weekend of the 2024/25 season will show every game from the Championship, League One and League Two streamed live.

Highlights include:

• Four times as many matches from the EFL with all 72 teams featured more than 20 times per season.

• Every match from the men’s Super League.

• Coverage from the ATP & WTA Tours and US Open Tennis.

• PGA Tour golf and more.

Jonathan Licht, Managing Director at Sky Sports, said: “Exceptional sport, covered in an innovative and compelling way, has been a big part of our history. With the introduction of Sky Sports+, we are now able to offer sport fans more choice and an even better experience when watching the live action, at no extra cost.

“For the first time, we will broadcast every game live from across the EFL on the opening weekend. It’s going to be a huge moment for football fans up and down the country and is a fitting way to kick-off our ground-breaking new partnership with the EFL.

“And this is just the beginning; Sky Sports+ unlocks the potential for us to keep evolving and finding new ways to deliver brilliant sport to our customers.”

Sky Sports+ will also give exclusive access to Sky’s great sports documentaries, such as the much-anticipated Darts documentary, two weeks before anyone else.
