BT Vision customers will now be able to watch Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 after a deal between BT and BSkyB will see the wholesale supply of the channels.
BT Vision is BT’s broadband based TV service (IPTV) and will be able to offer subscribers the two Sky Sports channels from the 1st August, with sign ups for them being taken in early July. This comes just in time for the new Premier League football season which is due to kick off on August 14th.
The Chief Executive of BT Retail, Gavin Patterson said:
“We are delighted to have reached this milestone, which means that we can be certain of offering Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 to our customers before the football season kicks off. We know our customers will be keen to sign up for the two channels.“
There is currently no pricing for how much it will cost to take up these channels with BT Vision but they will be announced soon. For a basic BT Vision subscription it costs £7.50 per month for BT Broadband customers.
