Sky Sports have announced details of their revamped package, which will be available in Ireland from July 18th.

The broadcaster’s sports coverage is to be split across 10 sports channels - including dedicated channels for the Premier League, football, cricket, golf and F1.

The new service is available to Irish customers at no extra cost - although it is believed Sky customers in the UK will be offered cheaper packages depending on which channels they wish to receive.

Sky have revamped their sports package as a response to dwindling subscription figures.

Viewers will be able to watch “the biggest events” on new channel ‘Sky Sports Main Event,’ while rugby and GAA will be shown on ‘Sky Sports Arena’ and ‘Sky Sports Action.’

The GAA however will make it onto the new main events channel on the weekends of July 22nd and 29th and August 5th.

Existing Sky customers in Ireland will receive the new package automatically, with prices remaining the same for 12 months.

New Sky Sports channels:

401 Sky Sports Main Event

402 Sky Sports Premier League

403 Sky Sports Football

404 Sky Sports Cricket

405 Sky Sports Golf

406 Sky Sports F1

407 Sky Sports Action

408 Sky Sports Arena
