ESPN secures Sky satellite carriage


by David Allen

The satellite broadcaster BSkyB will be carrying the new sports channel, developed by the Disney owned ESPN to show the live football games from the Barclays Premier League next season.

The new channel, which will simply be called ESPN, is to be launched on the 3rd August and will be available in both standard and high definition on the Sky TV EPG.

ESPN will occupy channels 417 (SD) and 443 (HD).

This will be a premium service and Sky Sports customers wishing to see the extra forty six games from the Premier League will have to pay £9 per month, while non Sky Sports subscribers will be charged an extra £12 per month for ESPN.

Those who wish to view ESPN in HD will able to do so for free providing that they already subscribe to the Sky+ HD service.
