It’s been 100 days since games were paused, but now the Premier League is back with Sheffield United taking on Aston Villa and Manchester City taking on Arsenal on Wednesday night.
A total of 92 games are still to be played in the league each of which will provide a welcome distraction during the boredom-inducing coronavirus lockdown.
Sky Sports is hosting over two-thirds of the remaining games, 25 of which will be available to watch on their free-to-view TV channel Pick (soon to be rebranded as Sky Pick).
Here’s how to access the channel.
What is Pick/Sky Pick?
Originally known as Sky Three and as Pick TV – the rebranded Sky Pick is a freeview channel which provides viewers with a sample of Sky’s paid programming.
The channel is set to grow exponentially in popularity with the arrival of the Premier League.
We have approached Sky to confirm exactly when Pick will rebrand as Sky Pick.
