Sky Sports’ Super League fixtures to move to new platform

SKY SPORTS have revealed details of their new streaming service, on which the majority of Super League matches will be shown from August.

Since the beginning of this season, Sky have been screening two games per week exclusively, with the other four matches shown on both their channels and the RFL’s own streaming service, SuperLeague+.

Once ‘Sky Sports+’ launches, only those two top picks will remain on Sky’s linear channels, with the other games available to stream on both the Sky and RFL services.

Sky Sports+ will be available as part of regular Sky Sports subscriptions at no extra cost, and can be watched on Sky TV, the Sky Sports app or NOW TV.

An exact launch date has not been confirmed but it will be in the first two weeks of August, before the start of the next English Football League season with more than 1,000 games from that competition to be shown a year on the service, alongside international tennis and golf.

“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,” said Sky Sports managing director, Jonathan Licht.

Sky’s TV deal from this season was the first to ever include coverage of every single Super League match.
