Update: changes happen on 23 August 2010
Today, the Press Gazette reports that Sky Sports News is to be removed from Freeview.
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.
Sky 3+1 is now on Freeview channel 44. If you can't see the channel (and you could see Sky Sports News before), you need to scan for channels. See below.
