Particularly when England are involved. This column felt a solemn duty to tune in at some point, and given that yesterday England were playing as meaningless a game as they could ever hope to have, we figured this might be peak postmodern o'clock on Sky.
Share on Reddit reddit Sky Television has made a big move in the battle for New Zealand sports TV with the announcement of a new streaming app and a major revamp to its Sky Sport package.
The announcement suggests that Sky is willing to go toe-to-toe with Spark Sport in the streaming market, while doubling down on one of their strengths - their sports coverage.
Here's all you need to know about the announcement: 12 dedicated sport channels From August 1, the Sky Sport line-up will be boosted to 12 sport-specific channels — all in HD — with pop-ups on top of that, replacing what is currently Sky Sport , plus two ESPN channels.
Advertisement The new package starts with four sport-specific channels for rugby, cricket, golf and football, which will deliver extensive coverage both live and other, including grassroots documentaries, classic replays and in-depth features.
Another five channels will strongly feature netball, rugby league, motorsport and the best of the rest. The news channel will also feature live coverage of press conferences and a new daily news show fronted by Campbell Live alumnus Kate King and Radio Sport veteran Goran Paladin.
