"We're improving our service even further, super-serving existing customers and providing flexibility to a whole new generation of sports fans", he noted.

"It's about making sure we continue to offer an outstanding live sport experience for sports fans, helping landlords to make money through live sport by encouraging even more customers through the door", David Rey, managing director of Sky Business said.

Sky Sports Main Event - for big live events across multiple sports, including Premier League and Football League footy, Test cricket and more.

From 18th July, the numbered Sky Sports channels that have defined its linear offering since the 1994 launch of Sky Sports 2 will disappear, while its pricing structure will also change significantly in a move which reflects the pressures on traditional operators from changing viewer habits.

"We are making sport more accessible and offering even more choice; all part of our continued investment in offering Sky customers an unrivalled service".

Boxing, rugby union, rugby league, tennis, darts and NFL will be televised on the new Sky Sports Action and Arena channels.

"With new dedicated sports channels including Sky Sports Premier League and a Main Event channel, it's never been simpler for licensees to find and show the sports that matter most to pubgoers".
