        How to compare and buy Sky Sports packages

        How do I compare different packages?

        The Sky Sports package is a real treat for sports fans. With an impressive line-up of six sports channels plus Sky Sports News HQ, there is enough live action to entertain most sports fans all year round. Use our comparison table above for a breakdown of each deal.

        Availability

        Sky Sports is available with Sky TV, which is run by satellite. If you type your postcode into our availability checker, it will show you which Sky TV bundles are on offer in your area, along with a breakdown of each deal.

        Check the detail

        Before rushing into any decisions, make sure you are happy with what you are getting. The terms and conditions include important information on contract length, cancellation terms and any hidden costs. Although it is a long-winded process, it’s best to take the time to familiarise yourself with the details.

        Why choose Sky Sports?

        Exclusive live sports action

        Sky Sports is best-known for its coverage of Premier League football. But there’s more to it. As well as live football, it also features domestic and international cricket, US Open tennis, major golf tournaments including European and PGA tours and the rugby action from the Heineken Cup. Whether you are a sports junkie or just like watching one or two events, Sky Sports offers something for everyone.

        Dedicated Formula 1 and European football channels

        For those who are F1 fans, you can catch all the petrol-fuelled excitement on the Sky Sports F1 channel. This includes the build-up to all the races and a lot of behind-the-scenes action. The latest addition to the Sky Sports family is Sky Sports 5, showcasing live European football matches from the UEFA Champions League, La Liga, Euro 2016 qualifying matches, Coppa Italia and Dutch Eredivisie.

        Available to watch on-the-go

        Sky Sports is available with Sky Go. This app is available to all Sky TV and broadband customers on smartphones and tablets, and allows you to watch all the sporting action wherever you are.

        Pros & cons

        Pros

        • Exclusive live sports action
        • Dedicated F1 and European football channels
        • Available to watch on-the-go

        Cons

        • Can be expensive
        • Has to be purchased as part of a TV package
        • You can’t buy individual sports channels

        Which package is right for me?

        If you are a new customer

        You’ll have to first purchase a TV bundle and then add on Sky Sports. All Sky packages come with 240 free-to-air channels. You can purchase the Sports Bundle, which is the Original Bundle plus the Sky sports pack. This includes over 35 entertainment channels and 11 free-to-air HD channels. If you would like more entertainment choice, then you may want to opt for the Variety Bundle or Family Bundle. There is also the option to add broadband to your package.

        If you are an existing customer

        Existing customers can simply add the Sky Sports package to their current bundle on a 12-month contract. It’s quite straightforward and you won’t need to pay an upfront cost.

        What will I need?

        A satellite dish

        When you take out a TV package with Sky, you will need to have a Sky dish installed. You will receive your TV viewing card by post as well as an installation date. A Sky engineer will then come to install the dish.

        A Sky+HD box

        All Sky packages now come with a Sky+HD Box. You will be able to enjoy free-to-air HD channels in high definition as well as record, pause and rewind live television. However, to watch Sky Sports in high definition, you also need an HD-ready TV, the Family Bundle, Sky Sports and the HD Pack. If you think you will need more memory space than the 60 hours available on the Sky+HD Box, you can go for the Sky+HD 2TB box, which is available from £49 for existing customers or from £149 for new customers. If you want to have Sky in an additional room, Sky Multiscreen can be added to the package for an additional £11.25 per month.

        How do I switch?

        How to choose your package

        You can choose a deal from the table above. By clicking on the package, you’ll get a breakdown of what’s included in the deal. This will give you information on a number of features, including extra costs and pricing. You can sort the deals by monthly cost, TV channels or total cost. Once you have made a decision, click on the blue ‘See Deal’ button. You will then be redirected to Sky’s website where you can complete your purchase.

        Cancel with your current provider

        Once you have found a deal that you are happy with, you’ll need to inform your current TV provider that you are leaving (if you already have a subscription service). If you decide to leave before the minimum contract term, you’ll be subject to a termination charge, so it is worth waiting a little longer to avoid any charges. The small print of your current contract will explain the cancellation terms.

        Six essential questions before you buy

        1. Are Sky services available in my area?
        2. Which TV bundle do I want?
        3. Do I want HD content?

        5. Am I happy for a satellite dish to be attached to my property?
        6. Have I read the terms and conditions?
