Sky Sports to launch channel dedicated to golf

Earlier today we heard about the 10 new Sky Sports channels that are coming to Sky in the United Kingdom and these new channels are also headed to Sky's Now TV. There are also dedicated channels for cricket, golf and F1.

Sky Sports' response to this is markedly different from existing multi-sport OTT products such as DAZN - available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan - and Discovery's Eurosport Player, even if further steps may be taken to separate the sports channels from the general offering.

Prices start at £18 and go up to £27.50 for all channels.

Sky Sports is launching a dedicated Premier League channel as part of a major overhaul of its services.

And a new Premier League weeknight debate show will also be added, including interviews, documentaries and behind-the-scenes footage.

But for BT TV customers the news is now less positive. A one-channel pack will cost £18 per month, two £22 or three £26, so subscribers needn't pay more to watch a sport they have no interest in.

Sky Sports Golf

All the other sport that Sky covers (like rugby league, rugby union, tennis, netball, darts, NFL etc.) will be shown across two new channels: Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Arena.

Viewers will enjoy a host of new programmes, including: a nightly Premier League debate show on Sky Sports Premier League, masterclasses and coaching clinics from some of the biggest names in sport including Shane Warne, Butch Harmon and Rob Key, live golf previews ahead of selected European and USA events, and a host of new documentaries.

Sky says the new line-up is created to grow their customer base and "offers flexibility to subscribe to individual channel packages at a new price".

Sky Sports Premier League will be the new home of the top flight and its heroes, broadcasting 126 live Premier League games as the likes of Paul Pogba, Philippe Coutinho and Harry Kane renew rivalries.

You'll be able to catch coverage of the remaining World Cup Qualifiers for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and whether it's live action, goals or highlights you're after, you'll find them in the Sky Sports app, too.

"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".
