With all recent sporting events cancelled due to the current coronavirus crisis, Sky made the popular decision to allow customers to pause their subscriptions.
However, that time seems to be up as many Sky customers have received notifications that they will begin paying again from June 19.
The Covid-19 pandemic brought proceedings to a halt in mid-March leaving both the Scottish and English leagues and the sport in general in limbo.
But, in recent weeks, the German Bundesliga's successful behind closed doors resumption has paved the way in Europe with other leagues across the continent now set to follow suit.
In the UK, snooker, golf and horse racing has now restarted and it’s been announced that nearly 30 English Premier League games will be shown on free-to-air TV, with top-flight football back on the BBC for the first time in decades and Sky Sports offering 25 matches on their free channel 'Pick'.
The remaining games will be available on Sky, BT Sport and Amazon.
Money-saving expert, Martin Lewis has issued advice for all Sky Sports and BT Sport customers regarding the subscription payments.
“Sky Sports customers who ‘paused’ their subscriptions will start paying again from June 19, those with a package for just one sport (eg, Formula 1 or cricket) will stay on pause until that sport is back,” he wrote in the latest edition of the MoneySavingExpert.com newsletter.
He added: “ BT Sport had given bill credit equal to their subscriptions, and will give a 50 per cent credit for the June bill - automatic for all who've already asked, if not, you can still ask.”
How to claim BT Sport credit
BT customers can claim back two months of credit.
Customers can either ask to have the amount taken off future bills or donate the money to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal.

The founder of MoneySavingExpert.com also had advice about football season ticket refunds.
“Top-level football clubs are set to play out the rest of the season without fans watching, so season ticket holders can usually get refunds, though some only offer credit unless asked,” Martin wrote.
