Sky 2 & Pick TV to show free Sky Sports content on 17th August

In order to celebrate the first day of the Premier League season and Sky Sports' new line up of shows, football programmes from Sky Sports 1 will show on Sky 2 (on Sky and other pay TV services) and Pick TV (on Freeview and YouView). Don't miss your chance to try Sky Sports for free on the 17th of August.

This means that millions of homes will be able to enjoy a live Premier League match, a Football League fixture, as well as a host of other football shows absolutely free. The complimentary day will also include the brand new show, Saturday Night Football, for Sky's 5.30pm Saturday evening Premier League fixture. 

Barney Francis, the MD of Sky Sports, comments:

It's our biggest ever season of Premier League football and we're inviting every home in Britain to enjoy the opening day. All fans can join the action as we launch our new Saturday schedule for the most eagerly awaited Premier League season in years.  With more matches than ever before, including 116 live Premier League fixtures, there's never been a better time to be a Sky Sports viewer.  If you don't have Sky Sports, this is a great opportunity to sample what our football coverage has to offer throughout the year.
