- Sky Sports Premier league
- Sky Sports Football
- Sky Sports F1
- Sky Sports Cricket
- Sky Sports Golf
- Sky Sports Action (for other sports, such as rugby, tennis, boxing and darts)
- Sky Sports Arena (see Sky Sports Action)
Sky Sports News and Sky Sports Mix – both of which are free to Sky TV customers – will also remain.
