Sky Sport Scotland is a subscription service that shows just about all of the nation’s fixtures. The service also has a secondary deal with BT Sports, which allows you to watch more live games. Sky Sports Scotland has a long list of mistakes that must be corrected, but it is important that they listen to feedback from viewers and invest in their coverage. The following are some ways to improve Sky Scotland’s coverage. Hopefully these suggestions will help them make the most of the opportunities that are available.
Sky Sport Scotland
Earlier this week, Sky Sports announced that they will be telecasting all Scottish Premiership games, with 13 games across March, April and May. Many of these matches were already confirmed as Sky Sports Scotland telecasts, but this is the first time the entire schedule has been announced. Among the new fixtures that will be broadcast on the channel is Rangers’ trip to McDiarmid St Johnstone, Livingston’s match against Celtic and St Mirren’s game against Dundee United.
It’s a subscription service
Despite being a subscription service, Sky Sports in the UK has enjoyed huge success. The company is credited with launching pay-TV, which took some time to gain traction with British viewers. The primary reason for paying for Sky Sports was premium sport content, but other reasons for subscribing to the service have also emerged. Here, we will look at four of the most important reasons why subscribers should consider subscribing to the subscription-based service.
It shows just about all its fixtures
When it comes to Scottish football, Sky Sports often has tunnel vision. While it used to be able to show all games in the country, that has now changed. You can now watch nearly all of the teams’ fixtures on the website. While Sky doesn’t show as many games as the other channels, its website still provides the majority of the information you need. For instance, you can find out the results of matches in the first half of each season and view the scores on the website.
It has a secondary deal with BT Sports
The new Scottish football broadcast deal will see Sky screen more games, including a number of Old Firm matches, in exchange for the rights to broadcast more than 30 games a season. The deal will be worth PS150m overall, with Sky claiming it will be an additional benefit to Scottish football fans. It also means BT Sport cannot sell non-televised matches to rival broadcasters. The new deal is also worth PS150m for Sky, which is a significant amount.
It broadcasts Formula One
Sky Sport Scotland has been broadcasting Formula One since 2012. The channel’s F1 coverage features commentators including Ben Edwards, who has been commentating the sport since 2012. Alex Jacques, Harry Benjamin and George Jones are among the presenters. Previously, the channel’s commentators have included 2012 GP2 champion Davide Valsecchi and Johnny Herbert. This year, the channel will introduce a new host in the form of Jenson Button, who will present the “F1 Show” alongside Harry Benjamin and Alex Brundle.
It lost broadcast rights for Scotland’s 2026 World Cup and Euro 2028 qualifying campaigns
In a blow to Scottish football fans, Sky Sports Scotland has lost the broadcast rights for Scotland’s Euro and World Cup qualifying campaigns. Viaplay, which is set to launch in the UK later this year, will air all of Scotland’s matches in the World Cup and Euro 2026 qualifying campaigns. In addition to the 2026 World Cup campaign, Viaplay will also screen their friendlies and Nations League campaigns up to the 2028 Euro and World Cup. The company has already spoken to Hampden officials about free air broadcasts of games on Viaplay.
