Sky Sports channels

Sky's premium sports channels, Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2, offer football fans the chance to watch all the action from the Barclays Premier League, the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup.

And there are plenty of other great sporting fixtures and events shown on Sky Sports for those who don't follow the football, including Rugby League and Rugby Union, PGA and European tour golf, darts, ice hockey, cricket, Formula 1 and a variety of other motor sports. For more information, please call Sky on 0844 241 1407.

Originally, the Sky Sports channels were only available through a satellite TV subscription, but now you don't have to be a Sky customer to watch your favourite sports. Virgin Media (www.VirginMedia.com) and BT (www.BT.com) customers with a Vision+ set top box are also able to get packages which inlcude Sky Sports channels.

Sky Sports with BT Vision+

If you want to watch Sky Sports via BT TV you'll need to get a BT Vision+ box which allows you to add Sky Sports 1 and 2 to your package.

Sky Sports is not available with BT's YouView box.

However, in 2013 BT launched BT Sport - comprising of BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN, plus an app and online content. The BT Sport app and online content is available free to all BT broadband customers, and you can also watch BT Sports on your TV if you are a BT TV and BT Infinity customer, or if you have the Sky Digital Satellite Platform. Customers with BT Sports will be able to watch 38 Premier League matches and a range of other sporting action.

Sky Sports on Virgin Media

Following regulator Ofcom's ruling in 2011 that Sky must cut the price it charges rival providers to access its premium sports channels, cable customers with Virgin Media (www.VirginMedia.com) can now add the Sky Sports Collection to their TV package from £22.50 extra a month.

The Sky Sports collection includes Sky Sports 1, 2, 3 and 4, and Sky Sports F1 but not ESPN.

Sky Sports 1 or 2 can also be bought separately from £15.50 a month each. ESPN is available for an additional £8 a month for Size: M+ and L TV subscribers, or is free in the Size: XL TV package.

For more information on getting Sky Sports on Virgin Media please call.

Sky (www.Sky.com) has been at the forefront of sports broadcasting since 1992, offering a whole host of sports on its four dedicated sports channels, Sky Sports 1, 2, 3 and 4, Sky Sports News and Sky Sports F1.
