The two channels will publish an edition each afternoon featuring 6-10 distinctive ‘snaps’, using a combination of images, video and text. Snapchat users will also have the option to view a long form articles and videos.

“Our partnership with Snapchat is very exciting. We can reach a whole new audience hungry for news in a concise and creative form on a platform they already enjoy.” – John McAndrew, Director of News Output for Sky News

Whether that’s reporting on Daley Blind’s last minute equaliser at West Ham to analysis ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup we are really excited to be one of Snapchat’s first UK-specific partners as people look for new and innovative ways to keep up with what’s happened that day.”

Both Sky News and Sky Sports have extensive reach in digital media across various platforms, including the Sky News and Sky Sports apps and a presence across various social media channels.
