BT TV Service Confirms Sky Sports 5 Inclusion At No Extra Cost

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014 (11:13 am) - Score 970

BT has confirmed that new and existing TV (IPTV) customers will be able to watch the new Sky Sports 5 channel, which is dedicated to European Football, on their BT Vision+ set-top-box when it’s launched by Sky today (channel 524). But standard broadband (non – BTInfinity) subscribers will have to wait a few weeks longer.

In a snap message the operator confirmed that both new and existing BT TV customers with both Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 on BTInfinity (FTTC) will get the new channel automatically “at no extra cost“. Customers on slower copper (ADSL) based broadband bundles will get the same deal, but the channel won’t be ready to broadcast until 5th September.

The new channel adds to the European football action for owners of BTSport, including Italy’s Serie A, France’s Ligue 1 and Germany’s Bundesliga as well as the recently announced exclusive deal with Portugal’s Primeira Liga. Separately BTSport has exclusive live broadcast rights to all 350 matches from the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League football from 2015/16 for three seasons.

    Shame there is no sky sports 3 or 4 on BT Vision which kinda defeats the purpose if you are a footy fan you miss out on some premiership games. Pretty sad BT Sport could not even secure rights for all them.

    If you want football and Sky Sports Virgin or Sky are still the TV packages to go for.

    Wouldn’t it be better if BT actually started to offer telecom services? It used to be a telecom company, now it acts as beggar for public BDUK funding.

      As I’ve told you JN before you need to diversify to survive, if other telco’s provide a multitude of services you need to also

      Any news on your long term investors?

      Can I call you GMAN99 or TheFacts from now on?

      Your constantly accusing people of being someone else is a troll-like behaviour of someone who can’t stand it when others have different opinions.

      So repeat after me: BT is a beggar, wasting taxpayer’s money!

      Sorry I meant to say you AND JN but yeah.. same thing

      I’m more than happy to hear different opinions and would be even more happy to hear about your long term investors

      “… if other telco’s provide a multitude of services you need to also…”

      Do let us know when their TV products have full seasons of the football, Cricket, F1 and more like Sky and Virgin, rather than a bunch of shows talking about sport.

      As you are totally obsessed with trolling anything related to BT I’m sure you’ll know the latest before I do

      Im sure you will go complaining about any response, but regardless im sure you will know well before the rest of the planet after all if im a troll your goal must be to lick BT bottom. Perhaps its about time the spurge of idiot BT employees rather than comments were eliminated from this site.
