In a revolutionary move, Sky Sports have announced that they are scrapping their Sky Sports 1,2,3,4 and 5 channels and replacing them with sport dedicated packages instead.
The channel mega dons already have a channel dedicated purely to Formula One, and these new channels will follow the same format. Football will have two channels and golf and cricket will get one each. A final channel Sky Sports Arena will host things like rugby and tennis.
The move is set to combat falling viewing figures by offering cheaper packages to fans. This is part of a wider problem, with streaming services like Netflix steadily killing off traditional television. The number of subscribers dropped dramatically in the last year, with only 40,000 people subscribing in the first quarter of 2017, compared to the same period last year.
The cheapest package available will only cost £18 per month, which is a massive jump compared to their current £49.50. However subscribing to the full package will still be pricy.
