NFL and Sky Sports unveil ‘Sky Sports NFL’ channel - Launching 3rd September

For those of you that have the NOW TV Sky Sports pass, I believe this will replace Sky Sports Action when it launches.

Sky and the NFL have agreed a new five-year deal to broadcast the NFL, and for the first time ever the league will partner with an international broadcaster to launch a channel dedicated to the sport. 

The agreement marks the 25th anniversary of live NFL coverage on Sky Sports and will see ‘Sky Sports NFL’ launching from September 3 ahead of the 2020 season, which kicks off on September 10.

The brand new in-season channel will be the round-the-clock home of the NFL on television in the UK and Republic of Ireland from the regular season through to the playoffs, with Super Bowl LV live from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on February 7.

  Sky Sports NFL viewers can look forward to the following:

  • Minimum of five live games each week
  • First-pick exclusive game on Sky Sports NFL in the 6pm and 9pm slot every Sunday
  • Every Thursday Night, Sunday Night and Monday Night Football
  • NFL RedZone
  • Every minute of every playoff game, Pro Bowl and Super Bowl live
  • Flagship programming from NFL Network, including the popular Good Morning Football and Total Access shows
  • Award-winning documentaries and other content from NFL Films and NBC Sports
  • Brand new weekly shows to review the action and discuss the stories of the league, including original Sky Sports programming
  • Increased coverage across Sky Sports News, Digital and Social platforms
  • And much more…

Sky Sports has been a fantastic broadcast partner for a quarter of a century,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.  “This new five-year agreement and the launch of a dedicated Sky Sports NFL channel will undoubtedly continue our rapid growth in the UK and Ireland.  We are excited that our expanded partnership with Sky will provide even more NFL content to our millions of UK and Irish fans.

It isn’t clear from the initial info, but it is taking Sky Sports Action EPG slot on Sky (407), so it is either closing or at the very least, moving.
