In a statement, Mourinho said: "The Premier League is a special competition for me, one that takes so much hard work to win and you just can't take your eyes off the matches every week.
"Sky Sports is the home of the Premier League and it's a pleasure for me to join this team and help to understand and explain what happened in each match.
"Football is a huge passion, it means so much to the fans, and I look forward to being part of the Premier League with them until I return to my place on the touchline."
Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United last December, but the 56-year-old boasts an extensive knowledge of the Premier League.
He's won the league title an impressive three times during his glittering managerial career.
Sky Sports head of football Gary Hughes added: "Sky Sports has a fabulous team, but the best has just got better with Jose joining. He brings incredible success everywhere he has been and some terrific insight from being at the sharp end of football management for two decades.
"He's a proven winner and ahead of our biggest season yet, we're delighted to have him on our team."
Manchester United entertain Chelsea on Sunday with kick-off at Old Trafford at 4.30pm (BST).
