The channel's format shows rolling news bulletins, updated every 15 minutes. It broadcasts live from 9am to midnight. There are three teams of presenters on air daily.

SSNHD launched on 1 December 2011, at midday. The first on-air presenters were Kate Abdo and Thomas Fleischmann.

In 2016 Sky Deutschland announced that the channel would a become free-to-air channel and would be streamed in Germany. The first free-to-air broadcast was a match between Mainz and Bayern.

The channel now has more content. Alongside rolling news, it also broadcasts highlights, documentaries and magazine shows, all relating to sport. It is only allowed to broadcast 12 minutes of ads every hour.

In 2017, Sky reduced the channel's broadcast hours by three hours to fifteen hours.

On 12 March 2017 Sky Sport News HD started streaming.

On 5 August 2020 the station changed its name to Sky Sport News. [1][2]
