Football fan channel extends Sky Q deal


Brave Bison’s football entertainment brand Slash Football has extended its relationship with Sky Q.

Sky will license more than 300 videos from the Gen Z fan-focused football channel, content that will feature within the online video section of their next-generation Sky Q platform.

The agreement follows a four-episode licensing agreement over the summer during the World Cup.

The licensed content will sit within its own tab on the Sky Q interface and will include content from some of YouTube’s most famous influencer football teams including Rebel FC, Baiteze Squad, Eltham SF and SE Dons.

Slash Football will also be creating 30 brand new episodes of grassroots football content that will be exclusive to Sky Q customers.

“Sky Q is a ground-breaking entertainment platform, perfectly suited to the Slash Football viewer who was likely born with a smartphone in their hand, streaming content across multiple screens, whenever they choose,” said Brave Bison CEO Claire Hungate.

“We’re hugely excited to be partnering with Sky in another innovative distribution deal, extending the reach of our content to traditional TV viewers and illustrating the importance of owning the intellectual property (IP) rights of our content.

“Therefore, as well as being one of the biggest online media publishers in the world, we’re engaging with audiences on TV sets too.”
