BT has announced that after this year’s successful launch, they will be extending their Free BT Sports offering to BT Broadband customers for another sporting season.
We say season, as the service will be operating from September 2014 to August 2015 as per Premiership Rugby and Premier League Football, and since the Sporting channel has launched last September its taken off somewhat.
This is partly due to the 3 million of BT customers who now receive the channel free via BT products, but in total five million households now have access to BT Sport.
BT have announced that the service will remain free for BT Broadband customers throughout the 2014/15 campaign which will see BT Sport continue to show Barclays Premier League and FA Cup, European football, Moto GP races, European rugby tournaments and the Aviva Ruby Premiership.
John Petter, BT Consumer chief executive, said: “Fans have been the winners with BT Sport. Millions of homes have enjoyed the very best sporting action for free. We said we would shake up the market and we have done just that.
“The great news for fans is that BT Sport will remain free with BT Broadband for another season, during which we will broadcast live action from the new European rugby tournaments. There has never been a better time to switch to BT Broadband so I would encourage sports fans to sign up.”
BT Sport is pretty much widely available for customers across the board where users can sgn up for a monthly basis for £12 SD or HD viewing for £15. Both Sky and Virgin Media offer the supply of the service as well as access to BT Sport via Apps and online websites.
