As a result of the now completed sale of the Sky Betting and Gaming group from Sky UK Limited, Soccer Saturday Super 6 will now be operated by Hestview Limited (trading as Sky Betting and Gaming).

What’s changing? Well, nothing much. The game will run in the same way but the company that will operate the game is changing from Sky UK Limited to Hestview Limited, so any emails, offers, etc. you get in the future about the game or related products or services will come from Hestview Limited or one of its trading names. You’ll continue to be able to play the game with exactly the same Terms & Conditions. It’s just that from now on your services are (officially) supplied by Hestview Limited.
And that’s it.

From another website:

CVC Capital Partners purchased an 80% stake in Sky’s gambling business in December 2014 for £600 million. Part of the deal allows Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Casino and Sky Poker to continue using the Sky brand name, but that is as far as the affiliation with Sky goes.

perhaps nothing is expected to change as well,your probably right but the new company owners have a big advantage this coming may because they are accepting bets from the biggest fight in the history reaching about 200million dollars only shared by 2 players its between floyd mayweather and manny pacquiao boxing events...

Interesting post. I had an email about Super 6 but didn't really read it. I suppose I had better go and take a look and also log into sky poker, etc and see if anything changes or upgrades. Will keep an eye on how this all develops. Interesting times in the world of gambling!

This came as a surprise to me also.I was watching channel 861 on Thursday and out of the blue they said the channel would no longer be broadcasting on Sky.They say they will be doing other TV but just not have a dedicated poker channel anymore.

Wow so much money is changing hand and they will keep continuing making money as in uk gambling is regularized and no tax on winnings for punters but lots of rules for Uk Based bookies, so a very good combination also sky bet is good they have a lot of promotion and all kind of bets, player bets especially but they are for the Uk and countries people, so if you are not a resident it is not worth it , anyway good luck and have fun!
