How to pause Sky Sports

Pause Sky Sports due to coronavirus

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and pretty much all sporting events being postponed or cancelled, Sky has announced that customers can optionally pause Sky Sports subscriptions.

There is content being broadcast across the 11 channels but, of course, no major live events such as the Premier League football and F1

Originally there was no way to pause your Sky Sports package online. But this is now possible by signing into your Sky account here.

You can also call Sky on 0800 151 2747.

Sky said: “we have reduced resource in our call centre and we apologise if you are unable to get through to us on the phone,” adding “you will not be charged a fee to do so or be held to any notice period.”

If you really do love sport, then you may also have a subscription to BT Sport. This is how to cancel or pause BT Sport.
