If you’re a big fan of football, one of the best places to keep up to date with all the news and goings on is Sky, whether that’s via Sky Sports channels as part of Sky TV, the Sky Sports website, Sky Sports News Radio or even the sports section of Sky Magazine.

Sky provides some of the best football coverage on television, with its four Sky Sports channels, the Sky Sports News channels, ESPN and a host of other specialist channels, many of which are also available in high definition.

To keep track of what football matches are on Sky TV and when, you can use many different sources. The interactive TV Guide on Sky itself is useful, and you can also programme certain matches to play automatically on your television as soon as they start.

If you have Sky+, you can also record live TV and play it back whenever it suits you. Alternatively, you can check the Sky website to see when matches are being broadcast. If you’re away from your television when something you want to watch is on, you can stream sports live online using the Sky Player. Existing Sky Sports customers can also gain access to clips and matches that have already been shown as part of this service.

The Sky Sports website holds a huge amount of information, and you can access the football area of the site to look specifically at news, videos, discussions and articles just about your favourite sport. The latest football headlines are shown on the main Sky Sports Football page, so you can check back regularly to keep up to date with the latest news. The site also includes a photograph and video library, for any moments you have missed or perhaps want to relive.

You can also keep up to date with betting on football through Sky Bet, which advertises odds and bets on the latest match markets on the Sky Sports Football page as well as listing all the latest markets to be opened on its own Sky Bet homepage.

All of Sky’s websites are frequently updated, including the online casino Sky Vegas, which currently features a Top Trumps-style game based on legendary football players. New additions to Sky Vegas’ existing games catalogue are posted on the site’s homepage, so you can keep your eyes open for other themed games you might enjoy.

In spite of the huge amount of football content on offer from Sky, remember that there is much more to be had from the provider. As well as Sky Vegas online casino, Sky also offers online poker at, where you can play many different varieties of poker games, from classic to modern, complex to extremely simple. You can also participate in poker tournaments and competitions, as well as enjoying the games also offered on Sky Poker’s television channel, available on Sky TV as part of the Variety Entertainment Package.
