Sky Sports livestreams Deadline Day on Twitter

Sky Sports News HQ is determined to keep you up to date this Deadline Day, teaming up with Twitter to broadcast a special livestream that anyone can watch.

From noon today, it'll offer live updates on transfers, right up until the window closes. On Twitter, that means a dedicated page with the stream and live updates on the #DeadlineDay hashtag.

Three separate streams will broadcast from the newsroom:

  • 12pm-1pm - David Garrido and Natalie Sawyer, with Thierry Henry and Jamie Redknapp
  • 5pm-6pm - Kirsty Gallacher and Julian Warren, with Don Goodman, Matt Le Tissier, and Phil Thompson
  • 10pm-11pm - Hayley McQueen and Jim White, with Alan McInally and Charlie Nicholas

On the TV channel - and on the app and Sky Go - you'll also get a 'super-sized' episode of Gillette Soccer Special at 7pm.

Dave Gibbs, Sky Sports' director of digital, said: "The heart of Deadline Day is the fantastic reporting team and a newsroom that delivers incredible stories of improbable transfers all football fans are craving.

"Our job is to package the fascinating stories across all the platforms we have so that fans can decide the best way for them to follow the news, whether that's watching Sky Sports News HQ, live streaming on Twitter, or across our apps and website."

Catch all the transfer news as it happens on deadlineday.twitter.com, Sky Sports' website, via the Sky Sports app, or on TV if you have Sky Sports (Sky 406, Virgin Media 506, TalkTalk TV 401).
