Launched on 31 July 2003, it provides non-stop rolling news, weather forecasts, and sports stories with half-hourly updates. The interactive version of SKY TG24, called Sky TG24 Active, was launched in January 2005.
Part of SKY TG24's programming is available on the television channel Cielo.
In the United States, SKY TG24 was available via satellite on DirecTV, launching in December 2004. On 7 December 2008, SKY TG24 was removed due to low subscriber levels. It is currently available on cable via RCN in Boston, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.
