Sky Sports push notifications FAQ: How to receive the news alerts you want

The Sky Sports mobile app will keep you up to date with the latest news from your favourite sports - here's how to receive the alerts you want.

Once you have updated to the latest version of the app, you can filter Sky Sports' notifications to suit your needs. Read on to find out how...

Q: I want to be notified when a big sports news story breaks, but I don't want to sign up to receive individual sports alerts. Can I do that?

A: Yes! Simply tap on 'Breaking News' and we'll send you a notification when a big story emerges. This way, you'll be notified when a top story arrives - but you won't receive daily individual sports alerts.

Q: I'm a football fan, but I'm keen to know when a big sports story breaks. I want to get all the latest football news, but would like to know who has won the British GP, an England Test match and the result of a big Box Office event, for example. Is that possible?

A: It is! If you're keen on getting dedicated news alerts from an individual sport but want to know when a big sports story breaks, make sure you tap on the sport you love along with 'Breaking News'. This way, you'll be notified of a big story without having to subscribe to another sport.

Q: I want to receive the latest football, cricket, rugby union, NBA, NFL, darts and netball news. Can I subscribe to more than one sport?

Q: I want to be notified when there's a big event on Sky Sports coming up. Can I get notifications reminding me when a match on Sky Sports Cricket will start, or who's playing on Super Sunday on Sky Sports Premier League?

Q: What if I change my mind and want to stop receiving alerts?
