      We Can Pause SkySports Due to Covid-19

      I received an email from Sky which among other things stated that it would allow us to pause SkySport due to Covid-19 with very little live sport being played or aired.

      Has anybody managed to do this?
      Here is the link to the page. https://www.sky.com/shop/tv/sports/p...HP-SportsPause

      I've tried, using 3 different browsers but it gives me a "Sorry but we are having Technical difficulties"

      According to Sky's statement about COVID-19, this should be possible. As you are having issues doing this online, I would be tempted to give them a friendly call.

      I was able to pause my Sports for 3 months - it works by going online and click the link on the Homepage. I had to wait around 20mins in a queue but then a few clicks to confirm. As I already paid for March/April, my April/May bill includes a credit and May/June has zero for Sports. My June/July is back to normal including my current discounts.
