Future of Sky Sports News On FOX Is Up In The Air

 Future of Sky Sports News On FOX Is Up In The Air

Sky Sports News, the popular 24/7 British sports news network that has been simulcast on FOX Soccer for several years, has been discontinued by FOX Soccer as of June 30.

Since Sunday night, no live nor taped simulcasts of Sky Sports News have appeared on FOX Soccer, and the TV schedule through July 14 shows that there are no plans to air the program.

Despite a previous statement from a FOX Sports spokesperson that FOX Sports 1 was planning on airing Sky Sports News in an early morning timeslot, the future of the show is up in the air now with FOX Sports stating today that “Programming plans for FOX Sports 1 are evolving, and at this point we are unable to comment specifically on the future of Sky Sports News.”

Based on the information that we have, the show could return to FOX at some point in the future, or it could be gone forever. It’s difficult to ascertain based on the information we have.

If you enjoy watching Sky Sports News and you’d like to see it continue to be aired on FOX Soccer (and FOX Sports 1, as of August 17), your best bet is to let FOX Soccer know via their contact form at http://msn.foxsports.com/feedback.

Sky Sports News has been a popular program among soccer fans to stay updated on the latest transfer news, debate and stories from the top soccer leagues in the world. The news program is particularly renowned for its transfer deadline coverage.

While the future of Sky Sports News is in doubt, FOX Soccer continues to air episodes of FOX Soccer News. Meanwhile, when FOX Sports 1 launches on August 17, the new network will feature FOX Sports Live, a 24/7 news franchise providing around-the-clock coverage through regularly scheduled programs and hourly updates..
