Sky sports

Just had an email saying that my sky sports subscription Payments would resume from 19th June as the football is restarting. Are the football games not free to air I thought they where so why am I paying for free to air games

Re: Sky sports

Sky Sports will show 64 matches - 39 exclusive to subscribers and an extra 25 available on Sky's free-to-air channel 'Pick'

Re: Sky sports

There's a breakdown of the allocation of football games to each broadcaster on this BBC link here 

As regards the Sky games, I don't think they've yet confirmed which free channel they will simulcast them on. They've used Sky One in the past, which has an HD variant, but this isn't a FTA channel. Pick has also been used previously, but this doesn't have an HD variant - Sky could well use this as an upsell opportunity.

And not all of the Sky games will be FTA. With a cynical hat on, if they can get you, they will 😉
