Sky News is launching an alternative service to the existing output, which will broadcast news Brexit-free.
Sky News Brexit Free will be available on Sky channel 523 and will run between 17:00 – 22:00 weekdays. It will also simulcast on YouTube.
John Ryley, the head of Sky News, said, “Sky News Brexit-Free is a bold approach but listening to public opinion over the past weeks and months, it’s something we know our viewers will find valuable.
“Brexit is an historic story that has a major impact and we will continue to give it comprehensive coverage. The new channel simply gives people the option to take a break from Brexit, apply a filter to their headlines and hear about issues away from Westminster and Brussels with a focus on hard-hitting, original journalism.”
The main Sky News service will continue broadcasting Brexit news as usual.
