Championship broadcaster Premier Sports to be renamed after buyout from Swedish-based streaming service

Premier Sports will be changing to ‘Viaplay’ on November 1st after the broadcaster was acquired by the international streaming service.

Home of live Championship and Challenge Cup rugby league in 2022, Premier Sports has received big praise for their coverage throughout this season and under Viaplay this looks set to continue next year.

Host Emma Jones and pundits Kevin Brown, Kyle Amor, Leon Pryce and Andrew Henderson have helped to showcase the second tier of British rugby league to a high standard, providing fans with a new angle to more live rugby league matches.

With Leigh Leopards now in Super League, 2023 looks set to be a hotly contested Championship season with many teams bolstering their squad as they push for promotion to the top-flight.

After the recent IMG proposals, next season could be one of the last chances for clubs in the second tier to make the jump to Super League in what looks set to be an open race for promotion.

If you have Premier Sports, there will be no change to your current subscription price once the changes happen, with more sporting content is set to be added.

Viaplay Sports 1 will be found on Sky channel number 412, Viaplay Sports 2 on number 421 and Viaplay Xtra on number 422. You will soon be able to stream everything on the Viaplay app, smart TV, web and more.

If you have an existing account with Premier Sports, it will be moved to Viaplay’s platform and you will be informed when everything is set up. For the meantime you can continue to use you Premier Sports account online until mid December.
