BSkyB has announced that Sky Sports News is to become a pay-TV channel, after eight years of being available on Freeview.
Sky said the move would allow the channel to benefit from "continued growth in subscription revenues".
The move would take place "later this year", Sky added. From then the channel will only be available via Sky, Virgin Media or Talk Talk TV.
The 24-hour sports news channel will be replaced on Freeview by Sky 3+1.
"Sky Sports News has been a great success over the last 12 years and we have big ambitions to make it even better," said Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports.
"As part of a subscription service, customers can look forward to expanded coverage and the launch of Europe's first HD sports news service."
