Football on Pick TV

Pick TV is a British free-to-air television channel, available in the UK and Ireland, and owned by Sky plc.

It was established back in 2005 and originally called Sky Three, but was rebranded to Pick TV in 2011.

Pick is predominantly an entertainment channel and shows very little sport. However, Pick TV came to the attention of sports fans in 2020 when they began to broadcast a small selection free live Premier League football matches.

However, if you're here looking for more free football on Pick, you are unfortunately going to be disappointed. Read on to find out why...

What Does Pick TV Offer?

Pick TV is a channel that offers a variety of entertainment shows, mainly re-runs of popular and cult 80s and 90s series such as Stargate Atlantis and Quantum Leap, plus more recent reality shows like Nothing to Declare, Motorway Cops and Road Wars.

But what really made Pick TV famous was when they broadcast a selection of live Premier League football matches in the 2019/20 season. 

This was during lockdown at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and gave football fans the opportunity to watch live matches for free, even if they were not subscribed to Sky Sports channels, or another TV sports package.

Is There Any Live Football on Pick TV?

The decision to provide free live football on Pick TV was a temporary one. Under normal circumstances, there is no Pick TV football programming.

Most live football on Sky is shown on their premium (paid) channels.

We will of course monitor the Sky Sports Pick schedules, and if any live matches do come up they will be displayed here.

However, Sky Sports do pay a lot for their Premier League TV rights package, so they were never going to give it away for free on a permanent basis.

How Can I Watch Pick TV?

Pick TV is available on all major platforms including Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk TV. You can also watch it online or on mobile devices via the Pick TV app.

It is a free to air channel, so you will not have to pay any subscription fee to watch, or subscribe to any premium cable or satellite provider.
