NFL on Sky Sports?

Recommended Posts

@helimachoptor

Hello you knowledgable lot (well some of you).

I wish to upgrade my sky tv package to include sky sports just for the NFL this season (don't currently have Sky Sports). I gather now they have changed the way they do it with different channels.

From what I've seen the NFL stuff should be on Sky Action or something, but the confusing bit is it says live matches and stuff will still be on Sky Main Event (whatever that is).

So, before I ring them up and get bamboozled, anyone know if I can just get one channel with all the NFL on it, and if so which one and how much would I expect to pay extra?

I suppose I should l be ringing them up but just wanted a bit of a heads up. Cheers chaps.

I'm not 100% certain but I'm pretty sure that the NFL is going to be on the same channel as both rugby codes which is Sky Sports Arena. Some times, games from other channels, Sky Sports Action, Arena, Cricket etc are also shown on Main Event at the same time. If you are subscribing specifically for the NFL just check with them and I'm sure you can get for around £18 per month if not wanting full sports package.

Yeah @Sovoth NFL will be on the Arena channel, so you can just get that. 

 

The main event channel you can only get if you subscribe to everything (which is a bit stupid as you can just watch it on the actual channel) but would imagine this will change in the future.

Thanks for that. Do you know how much it would be for just that channel? If I add that channel would it be in HD (I have the extra HD subscription thing but don't know if channels are added in HD or SD).

One more question, would this addition force a new contract on me or would it be no contract so I could cancel it anytime?

Thanks!

18 pounds mate, HD is included on sports channels, that is the non contract price

Sky Sports mix which should be showing redzone is on around the 120-129 channel area

£18 plus £6 to watch it in HD (regardless of the fact I already pay a tenner per month for the HD pack). :angry:

did you call? I'm not that close to the UK proposition, but you shouldnt be paying twice for HD, i would call up again and get someone else..

It is 18 but thats not in HD. It's an extra £6 for the sports HD which is apparently separate from the other HD... what a load of crap!

I've just spent 15 minutes on the phone to them.

I did, and got nowhere :lol:

I do like their coverage tbf and I will have to take it in the ass for now and cancel it after the NFL season is done.

Price wise, probably works out the same as NFL Gamepass I'd imagine.

GamePass is getting poor reviews currently. They changed App developers this year and it's constantly getting low star reviews

The new gamepass app is shockingly bad.
