Sky Scottish was a short lived satellite television channel operating on the analogue Sky TV service between 1 November 1996 and 31 May 1998.

The service was a joint venture between British Sky Broadcasting and STV owners SMG plc (now "STV Group plc"). It broadcast between 6.00pm and 8.00pm.

The main programme was an extra edition of Scottish Television's regional news programme "Scotland Today" and episodes of "Take the High Road" from 1994. Celtic F.C.'s 1997 pre-season friendlies were shown on the channel.

"Scotsport" was also shown on the channel as well as spin-off show "Extra Time". There was also "The Football Show" presented by Jim Delahunt.

Its eventual closure was prompted by poor viewing figures and a rationalisation of Sky channelsclarifyme in preparation for the move to Sky Digital.
