Sky Sports has added two new channels plus extra content so pubs can deliver even more sporting action to customers.

From July 18, an all new programming line-up plus two new channels will be available to customers. This means there are now 10 Sky Sports channels to pick from. 

There will also be sport-specific channels plus a Main Event broadcast station, to make it easier to cover all sporting bases.

David Rey, managing director of Sky Business, said: “We’re revamping the Sky Sports line-up and launching two extra channels, meaning Sky Sports pubs will now enjoy access to all the biggest sporting events across 10 channels.

“It’s about making sure we continue to offer an outstanding live sport experience for sports fans, helping landlords to make money through live sport by encouraging even more customers through the door.

“With new dedicated sports channels including Sky Sports Premier League and a Main Event channel, it’s never been simpler for licensees to find and show the sports that matter most to pub goers.

“It’s the perfect way to kick off the new football season and great news for landlords who can look forward to reaping the benefits of our best offering yet.”
