NBCSN to add weekday Sky Sports News hour

Comcast-owned US network NBCSN will begin airing an hour of weekday programming from UK sister channel Sky Sports News from Friday March 1.

The 11:00am-12:00pm Eastern Time weekday programming block was open on NBCSN due to the end of a five-year run for The Dan Patrick Show.

“We look forward to sharing Sky Sports News’ best-in-class coverage and perspective on the world’s most popular sports with our NBCSN viewers each weekday morning,” said Jon Miller, president of programming for NBC Sports and NBCSN.

NBCSN and Sky Sports News teamed up to provide transfer deadline day coverage for US viewers earlier this month. Sky Sports News has not been available on US television since the now-defunct Fox Soccer Channel aired it in 2013.
