Sky Sports Mobile TV
Following their 2-1 win over Chelsea, the Gunners are gearing up to take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley. The Carabao Cup offers the first trophy opportunity of the domestic campaign. And if it’s anything like last year’s Manchester United/Southampton clash, the final’s set to be a thriller.
Can Arsenal claim the silverware and salvage a less than stellar season? Stream all the action live on Sky Sports Football from 4.30pm Sunday 25 Feb.
February also holds plenty of must-see sport for cricket fans, as England prepares to face Australia and New Zealand in the Gillette T20 tri-series. The series follows England’s recent tour of Australia, which included the 2017-18 Ashes, and precedes a series of one day internationals against New Zealand from Sunday 25 Feb.
The first T20 will be played at Westpac Stadium in New Zealand against the Kiwis. Tune into Sky Sports Cricket from 5am or Sky Sports Main Event from 6am Tuesday 13 Feb to watch the gameplay live.

Part two of The Walking Dead Season 8 returns to NOW TV weekly from 26 Feb and you’re in for an emotional ride. It all kicks off with a feature-length episode in which many expect Carl Grimes’ (Chandler Riggs) demise. But, while the shock reveal of Carl’s walker bite in the mid-season finale left many watchers – and Rick – reeling, there’s also the small matter of all-out war between Alexandria and The Saviours.
It seems no one is safe in this zombie apocalypse, and equally, nothing’s certain. Check out Now TV’s The Walking Dead Survival Guide below to get you in the mood.
Also returning to Now TV this month is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Presenting a satirical take on the week’s news and events, the show’s received eight Primetime Emmys since its 2015 and we can’t wait to see what hilarity season 5 will bring. Tune in from 19 February for new episodes each week.
Justin Timberlake is back this month with fifth studio album, Man of the Woods. Described by JT himself as ‘modern Americana with 808s’, the track list features collaborations with Pharrell Williams, the Neptunes, Timbaland, Alicia Keys and country singer Chris Stapleton.
According to Timberlake, “This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written, where I’m from – it’s personal.” Check out the full album on Spotify from 2 Feb, including hit single Filthy below.
Also out this month is the latest from psychedelic synth-pop duo MGMT. After finding fame in 2007 with Kids, Electric Feel and Time to Pretend, the pair floundered a bit before finding their feet with what may be their poppiest album yet. Full of witty lyrics and well-crafted hooks, frontman Andrew VanWyngarden told Rolling Stone, writing Little Dark Age “clicked back to the way we used to write in college.”
“We weren’t trying to mask our pop influences like Talking Heads, Hall and Oates, and the 1980s music our parents would listen to and we still liked. It felt good to get back to that.”
Listen to album namesake Little Dark Age below and catch the full album on Spotify from 9 Feb.
