Sky News Brexit-Free closes down



It's the end of Brexit-Free news from Sky, as Sky's pop-up news channel closes down.

The broadcaster has confirmed the Friday 1st November edition of Sky News Brexit-Free, available on Sky channel 523 and via YouTube, will be the last.

From 10pm, viewers will have to revert back to the original-flavour Sky News, which now has added election coverage to occupy viewers in addition to Brexit news.

Sky News Brexit-Free was launched on Sky on 16th October, then launching on YouTube on 21st October 2019, becoming the station's second pop-up channel after Sky News Raw, which was launched to celebrate 30 years of Sky News earlier this year.

Brexit-Free broadcast for five hours every evening between 5pm and 10pm, although its YouTube viewing figures indicated relatively few viewers were streaming the channel.
