Read our guide for more information on Chelsea TV, what’s featured on the channel and how to sign-up to it…

What is Chelsea TV?

The Chelsea TV channel has been broadcasting for 7 years, direct from Stamford Bridge, as part of a joint venture between satellite TV giant Sky (www.sky.co.uk) and Input Media, a sports production company.

Chelsea TV has its own reporters, giving live commentary from every home and away game, training sessions and any community events held by the football club, ensuring True Blues get complete coverage of their favourite team.

The channel also broadcasts live pre-season games involving the first team and all reserve and youth cup games - so you can keep up with the future stars of Chelsea.

Every Chelsea Premier League and Champions League game will be shown on the channel, though unfortunately, due to television rights, Chelsea TV cannot show live first team games during the competitive season (though you can watch these on Sky Sports). Fans can still watch the full 90 minutes of any first team fixture within 12 hours of the final whistle on the channel, though.

Chelsea TV is available to all Sky (www.sky.co.uk) satellite TV customers on channel 421 and costs just £6 extra a month. There are two easy ways to subscribe:
