Products

Sky Sports offers a wide selection of different sports such as: football, cricket, rugby, motorsports, tennis, golf and many more. Follow your favourite team with Sky Sports Go, which shows live streams from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and many more. Unfortunately streaming is a paid service, however there are many advantages in subscribing, for example you can share an account with another person or up to 4 if you choose to upgrade your account.

Sky Sports has the added value of presenting its streaming in high quality and the presenters are amongst our favourites. Jeff Stelling on 'Gillette Soccer Saturday' is unmissable!

The English-speaking commentators are well chosen and hold a great deal of know-how about the matches. When it comes to transfer rumors or other sports news, it is considered to be a reliable source of information within the sporting world and always offers the latest incoming news.

Support

Besides a comprehensive FAQ section on their site you can also count on their dedicated support page for any problems you might encounter. Alternatively you can fill their conctact form and invoice them directly.

Website usability

The Sky Sports website is well structured, all sections are clearly visible, however the information is very condensed. Despite a good overview of the latest news and good access to exactly what you are looking for the website does seem a bit clustered at times.

It is worth noting that there is an easy access tab for live streaming which makes it comfortable and quick to watch it´s many channels.

Deposit / Withdrawal

You can pay for your Sky Sports subscription with a credit card (VISA or Mastercard), Paypal or Maestro card. Fee´s are eligible to change and you should therefore always search for different promotions and other forms of payment (Paypal, etc.) on their website.

Our own experience

The Sky Sports channels are part of the Sky Network and as such are very professional in their methods. They always have interesting promotions and subscription deals which benefit customers. It is a very extensive platform with access to any section that might interest you. However, whether or not it´s worth subscribing is up to you.

The verdict

A great variety of diverse sports news and information is easily available. The streaming subscription sharing is definitely a plus. And you get access to many hours of sport broadcasting. For additional information about Sky Sports or the Sky Network please refer to the appropriate page.
