C4 Paralympics coverage on new Sky channels

May 28, 2012

More than 10 million Sky homes will be able to watch uninterrupted coverage of the 2012 London Paralympics this summer through three new channels dedicated to Channel 4’s live coverage of the games.

The agreement follows an announcement last month that Sky will carry every second of the BBC’s live coverage of the Olympic Games on 24 dedicated channels, which will be available in both standard and high-definition.

The six new channels – three HD and three SD – will be added to the Sports section of Sky’s EPG from the 29th of August, and will be showing Channel 4’s coverage of the games in its entirety. The channels are free-to-air and available to any Sky home, including Freesat from Sky homes. The HD channels are available on any Sky+HD box and do not require a subscription, but do require an HD ready TV
