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

Tuesday, Aug 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.
