Nelonen Pro is a package of Finnish sports-oriented television channels owned and operated by Nelonen.

The story of the channel originally goes all the way back to the launch of digital terrestrial television on 27 August 2001, when among the first DTT channels the free-to-air sports channel Urheilukanava was launched. Its sister channel Urheilu+kanava was launched in June 2007 as part of the PlusTV package. It broadcast as an encrypted pay channel, as opposed to its parent channel, which was free-to-air. Urheilu+kanava was replaced by Nelonen Sport Pro in February 2010 and Urheilukanava became Nelonen Sport at the same time. Nelonen Sport Pro was renamed to Nelonen Pro 1 and Nelonen Sport to Nelonen Pro 2 in January 2011. In February Pro 2 was encrypted.

It also had its own news service, Urheilu+Studio, which was similar to Nelonen Sport's Studio, but ran from 1 hour to 2,5 hours from Tuesdays to Fridays.
