The channel will be replaced with a one hour timeshift of the Sky3 channel.

Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports, said: "Sky Sports News has been a great success over the last 12 years and we have big ambitions to make it even better. As part of a subscription service, customers can look forward to expanded coverage and the launch of Europe's first HD sports news service."

Sky hopes that people will switch from Freeview to a pay service to watch the channel.

Update

Sky 3+1 is now on Freeview channel 44. If you can't see the channel (and you could see channels/channel/SSNW">Sky Sports News before), you need to scan for channels. See below.
