Sky to launch Sky Sports+

Sky Sports+ has the capability to show up to 100 live events via concurrent streams, while the dedicated Sky Sports+ linear channel will showcase a selection of live sport.

Sky Sports+ comes at the start of Sky’s new EFL deal. Over 1,000 EFL games a season will be available, featuring every team more than 20 times, and every Championship club on at least 24 occasions.

Sky Sports+ will be in place from the opening weekend of the 2024/25 season, with every game from across all three divisions - the Championship, League One and League Two - streamed live, a first in broadcasting history.

Jonathan Licht, Managing Director at Sky Sports, said: “Exceptional sport, covered in an innovative and compelling way, has been a big part of our history. 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.

Live pause and rewind will be available on all concurrent streams, and the ‘Recap’ feature currently available for Premier League and Championship games will also be made available for EFL games shown on the Sky Sports+ linear channel.

At launch, Sky Sports+ will drop into the existing Sky experience, across Sky Glass, Sky Stream, Sky Q, and Now.
