News Corp owned; sport streaming service Kayo has ended an agreement to carry Sky News on its platform.
Sky News was added to Kayo in March to help keep customers engaged with the service during the COVID-19 lockdown when the majority of the world’s sporting contests were forced to suspend play.
A spokesperson for Foxtel confirmed the channel has now been removed telling TV Blackbox that Sky News had been;
“added to provide additional content to Kayo customers when there was no live sport. It’s now been removed.”
While Kayo suffered an understandable drop in subscribers during the sport shut down, since the resumption the streamer has experienced a rapid rise. Kayo recently reported it had increased its paid subscriber base to just over 600,000 customers in September.
