Sky News at Five (formerly Live at Five) and Sky News at Six are the titles of Sky News' authoritative hour-long evening news round-ups, beginning at 5pm and 6pm, British time.


Since the channel's revamp on 24 October 2005, the slot has been anchored by Jeremy Thompson on weekdays, and Andrew Wilson on weekends, providing a round-up of all the day's events and coverage of any late-breaking news. The show currently runs until 7pm, although the 6-7pm hour is branded Sky News at Six. The show was branded Live at Five until a change in branding policy was introduced by Sky News Executives on Monday 11 April 2011, when the majority of Sky News output was rebranded, simply Sky News


The programme's main rival is BBC News at Five, anchored by Huw Edwards broadcast on BBC News only on digital. Channel 5 also air their main news programme 5 News at 5.
