PREMIER LEAGUE is among a number of sporting competitions that have been suspended until further notice, as coronavirus continues to ravage the UK.
And now with the public facing a period off work, they may be wondering why they are paying for a Sky Sports subscription when only re-runs and old events are being shown.

Here's just how you can pause your subscription while COVID-19 is still around.
How can I pause my Sky Sports subscription?
Sky Sports is most famous for showing Premier League football and Formula 1 racing – but both of these are currently suspended for at least a month.
The English top flight is postponed until at least April 30, while F1 is currently looking at June 7's Azerbaijan Grand Prix as its season opener.
Due to this, Sky are allowing customers to pause their subscription without any cost as your next bill will show £0 for the sports package – while you will still need to pay for the rest of your bundle.
And even better, you can still watch all of the 11 Sky Sports channels after pausing it, so enjoy all the sporting replays.
To do this, you can call 0800 151 2747, say "cancel Sky Sports" and it will ask if you wish to pause your Sky Sports subscription.
Alternatively, you can visit Sky's website and follow the instructions.
But this option is only for Sky customers with Virgin Media currently not giving their subscribers the option to pause.
How much does a Sky Sports subscription cost?
If you are looking for when the action returns, Sky are currently offering an 18-month contract of all Sky Sports channels for £23 a month.
Meanwhile, if you are Virgin Media customer, you can add Sky Sports for £31.75 a month.
