Sky Sports News ... 1998, with Sky Digital becoming BSkyB's first digital only channel. On 10 April 2000, Sky Sports News relaunched as Sky Sports.com TV, a move to bring it tie in to the launch of the skysports.com website. However, the name was soon reverted back to Sky Sports News. The channel replaced Sky Sports Centre, a news show at 6pm, devoted to the key events in the sporting world. The show famously broke the news that Kevin Keegan would resign as Newcastle United boss, with immediate effect. Presenters on the channel include Ian Payne, Simon Thomas and Georgie Thompson.
Newest Review: ... Report', 'Through The Night' and 'Soccer Saturday'. Aside from Soccer Saturday all of these programmes are the same thing, though the presenters change. There are many regular presenters of the news and many more reporters who will film interviews, report from out of the studio and try to bring in the latest stories. Depending on what's going on in the sporting world I couldn't watch this ... more

This is a 24 hour channel dedicated to news from the sporting world. This is a free news channel which can be found on Sky channel 405, Virgin Media channel 515 and TalkTalk TV channel 550. Through the SkyGo feature you can watch the channel on a portable device such as a mobile phone or laptop. The channel features news stories, interviews, league tables, fixtures and the latest scores from many different sports. I am a big football fan and have only a small interest in other sports. I have to say that I feel when the football season is on other sports tend to get a bit neglected. Since the introduction of the channel Sky Sports F1 which is ... Read the complete review

The sports news channel from Sky is found on channel 405 but is also available to view for free with some providers. It's round the clock broadcasting means that you can catch up with all the latest results, interviews and transfer gossip at any time of day or night. Often along with the BBC website this is one of the best places to see breaking news or press conferences from the world of sport, particularly football. Without doubt one of the best features of this channel though is Soccer Saturday presented by Countdown host Jeff Stelling. It starts at 12pm on Saturday lunchtime and Jeff is joined by four former professional footballers to discuss the ... Read the complete review

Sky Sports News is a channel that normally comes with a Sky package, however you can also access Sky Sports news via freeview. Sky sports news covers sporting news, yes you guessed it. It also gives you regular updates and scores, breaking news and transfers when relevant. The show runs mainly on hourly slots but does seem to revolve around football. Every hour the show starts with brief updates on breaking news and then goes into it on more depth. I would say that the channel covers 85% of football, the rest seems to be other sports such as golf, cricket, tennis, rugby and boxing. The show also shows upcoming fixtures and current league table ... Read the complete review

Sky Sports News is a sports news channel available to users of Sky TV packages but also people with Freeview too, like myself. The channel runs 24/7 and is divided into hourly segments. The top headlines will be told at the start of each hour and the rest of the time will be spent discussing them and other less important bits of news. The show is broadcast live, which means you do see the presenters mess up their lines every now and again and various technical hitches, especially when they try to talk to someone out of the studio. This format means that if you have it on thorughout the day, you do hear the same news over and over again which is a ... Read the complete review

Sky Sports News is available both to Sky Subscribers and also to most freeview/free tv viewers. It is, as the title suggests, a channel based around Sports News. It runs 24 hours a day, and comes in the form of two presenters running through the latest events in the sports world, with constantly flowing information at the side and bottom, usually of results, fixtures, or headlines. Needless to say, it's also an excellent opportunity for Sky to regularly advertise their paid sport channels. A lot of the news is therefore connected in with live coverage of a said game, or event - and thus you are frequently encouraged to sign up so that you can see them. Like ... Read the complete review
