Sky Arts, a channel dedicated to arts and culture, is to be made free for everyone this September.

With a renewed focus on bringing more of the arts to more people, Sky Arts says it will “embark on an ambitious programme of activity to support and champion the arts – putting artists, creatives, and public participation centre stage on a channel that everyone across the UK can watch on Freeview”.

“As a creative business, we believe it’s important to have a thriving cultural sector. By making Sky Arts free for everyone we want to give more artists and arts organisations a platform to create and share their work and to bring more art and culture to everyone across the UK,” commented Stephen van Rooyen EVP and Chief Executive Officer, Sky UK and Europe.
