NBCSN adds Sky Sports News on weekdays for sports fans in United States

Beginning March 1, NBCSN will simulcast Sky Sports News on weekdays from 11am to Noon ET, providing sports fans in the United States with a daily update on the latest news from the Premier League, cricket, golf, rugby and other sports.

For many soccer fans in the United States, this will be welcome news. In the days of FOX Soccer Channel, many soccer fans were hooked on watching Sky Sports News every day to stay up-to-date on the latest transfer stories as well as breaking news from the world of sport.

“We look forward to sharing Sky Sports News’ best-in-class coverage and perspective on the world’s most popular sports with our NBCSN viewers each weekday morning,” said Jon Miller, President of Programming for NBC Sports & NBCSN.

This is the second major full-program collaboration between NBC Sports and Sky Sports since Comcast acquired Sky TV in October 2018. On January 31, NBC Sports and Sky Sports News combined to present a six-hour Premier League Transfer Deadline Day Special for U.S. viewers.
