Sky Sports is one of the premium channels that focuses just on sports in the UK. They have a variety of different sports channels that add up to 8 different channels. No matter what sport you enjoy, you are almost guaranteed to find one that is dedicated to a Sky Sports Channel.

Now TV is the only real competitor in the streaming services live TV category in the UK. Amazon Prime Video and Netflix are also viable options but they do not have any live television options. The UK is lagging behind the US in terms of available streaming services.
NOW TV offers a few different ways that you can pay for Sky Sports and access the sporting event that you want to watch.
