From January 10 2022 Sky TV platform will block seven channels. This news comes after the decision to leave the cooperation with the partner Mediaset. In fact, all channels that can no longer be seen with a Sky subscription will be associated with the brand Mediaset Premium by Mediaset.
Rumors of a split between the two brands, Sky and Mediaset, have been circulating since last summer, and already in November, the separation between the two was taken for granted. Operation postponed to the following year, the first days of 2022 reach news of the final cancellation of seven channels: three crime channels and four movie channels.

Sky 7 deletes channels: what channels and since when
The duo of Sky and Mediaset Premium broke out. In 2018, Sky received, thanks to a historic agreement with Mediaset, some of its Mediaset Premium schedule channels. It was a package consisting of crime and movie channels.
These are the channels that jump. As of tomorrow January 10, 2022, the channels will be blocked by Sky:
- crime premium
- Featured Stories
- Excellent cinema 1
- Premium Cinema 2
- Excellent cinema 3
Why didn’t it work between Sky and Mediaset Premium?
Thus ends the partnership between the two television producer companies. Perhaps part of the decision stems from the lack of enthusiasm of the same audience who does not think of Mediaset Premium as the first digital platform to watch certain shows, movies and TV series.
Between ups and downs, after 17 years, Mediaset Premium could end up in limbo, without ever being able to hold its audience. Some results with exclusive rights to Champions League (2015-2018), but later on, when it became available again also through a Sky Sports subscription, the audience appeal also disappeared.
Unlike other Sky partners like Netflix e Amazon Prime Video, which alone has the ability to attract a large audience and can in the future ensure Sky, through specialized packages, to increase the number of subscribers.
After a summer of rumors, according to which the cooperation between the two companies is now considered dead, the decision was officially made. In short, as of tomorrow (January 10, 2022), it will not be possible to watch the seven channels in the above list.
