      Do you get sky sports news, with the sky sports mix?

      A few weeks ago I added sky sports mix to my sky package, I have all the sky sports channels including sky sports extra. But no sky sports news, is this right for the sky sports mix?

      I have Sentanta sports news, but none of the other Sentanta sports channels, it just seems a bit strange to me having all the sky sports channels and not the news, especially when you can get sky sports news on free view for free!

      You should be getting it on Channel 405. Dial it up and see if it is there.

      Sky Sports News is part of the News Mix package so if you don't have that you will not get it. I don't have the news mix and don't receive it via Sky however I can get it via Freeview.

      Sky Sports News is not part of the Sports Package.

      I have checked and I can not get it.

      It just shows you how logical Skyís thinking is, if you pay for the sports mix you donít get it. If you have free view you get it for free, glad I have free view up stairs.

      Sky Sports News is part of the News Mix package
      I didn't realize that, I have the full package so it never occurred to me.

      From the 1st of September Sky Sports News will be in the Sports Package, so finally they have seen sense.

      Yep, its in the pamphlet about all the great changes they have made, included with this months sky mag. As Alan says why it was never part of the sports mix, or a free channel is beyond me, especially as you can get it on terrestial freeview.
