Britain’s Sky Sports News Returning To US
NEW YORK (AP) — Britain’s Sky Sports News is returning to U.S. television this week for a transfer-deadline show on the NBC Sports Network.
NBCSN will simulcast SSN’s deadline show in London from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. EST on Thursday. It will then follow with three hours of its own coverage from its studio in Stamford, Connecticut, with host Rebecca Lowe and analysts Robbie Earle, Kyle Martino and Robbie Mustoe.
Sky Sports News concentrates on British and European soccer. It was a staple of the Fox Soccer Channel but was dropped in 2017 when NBC took over U.S. broadcast rights to England’s Premier League from Fox.
Comcast, the parent company of NBCUniversal, outbid 21st Century Fox in September to take control of Sky.
