Sky Open, Sky’s new free-to-air channel, will replace Prime with some of the best local and international content from Sky Originals NZ, news, exclusive Sky Sports coverage, documentaries, and entertainment. 

“Our new free-to-air channel, Sky Open, enables Sky to create a bold and distinctive channel identity, connected to our family of Sky platforms and channels,” said Lauren Quaintance, Sky’s Chief Media and Data Officer. 

“This new look encourages existing and new audiences to open themselves up to a world of sport and entertainment, both local and international.”

Viewers can keep up to date with all the latest stories from Eric Young on News First. There are also two locally produced Sky Originals NZ premieres; the second season of the architecture series Designing Dreams and a new travel docuseries, Lost In France. Sky Open will also cover the upcoming Rugby World Cup 2023.  

“Sky Open is a key part of Sky’s strategy to deliver superb content to New Zealanders in ways that work for them.”
