Sky has confirmed the names of its newly revamped sports channels, including new dedicated channels for the Premier League, golf and cricket.
The new 10 channel line-up goes live on July 18th and will be available to existing customers for their current £27.50 per month subscription which will remain frozen for 12 months.
New subscribers will be able to take one channel for just £18 per month, two for £22 and three for £26, a move Sky says will allow customers to pay only for the sports they’re interested in.
Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports said: “We’re dedicating channels to some of our biggest sports, launching a new way to watch the best live action and offering even better digital products too.
“Sky Sports is giving customers even more choice and channels at the same price for another 12 months, while opening up new ways for sports fans to join.
“If you love Premier League, you can enjoy it for as little as 60p a day or you can have the full Sky Sports package for less than £1.”
Stephen van Rooyen, Sky UK and Ireland Chief Executive added: “Sport has been a major part of Sky for 26 years and we’re improving our service even further, super-serving existing customers and providing flexibility to a whole new generation of sports fans.
“We are making sport more accessible and offering even more choice; all part of our continued investment in offering Sky customers an unrivalled service.”
