BT to charge £5 for sport via sky box


[link to this post]
 
Seems my premier league football from BT is to cost £5 per month via my Sky Box despite my being a BT broadband customer

"Free" didn't last long, did it?

Good, I am sick of subsidising football with non-football related activities.

(buying broadband, having a non-sports sky subscription where the prices go up each time there is football to pay for. 10% a year!!!)

Don't think this £5 is going to mean you are going to stop subsidising any time soon!

When we joined BT last year for our broadband we was asked about the free BT Sports, but we declined due to it not supporting Multi Room LOL, no point in fighting over the one HD Box that has it.

Looks like BT Sport 1 (will be known as BT Sport Lite pack) will still be free for you, is that where most Premier games are shown?

Looks like access via Sky platform will be £5 or access via internet stream for free for BT Sport.

BT Sport Europe looks like it will only available via BT TV as they are showing every Euro game with many running concurrently so not really viable via Sky platform.

My back of the envelope calculations show BT TV is now a no brainer for football fans.

From what I can make of it.

Sky

Cheapest Sky TV access package - £20
Sky Sports - £25.50
BT Sport addition - not showing as available on BT website but existing subscribers paying - £12
BT Sport Europe - prolly not available but maybe via stream say £5

Sky total cost per month for every Premier League and Euro football game available = £62.50

BT

Cheapest BT TV access package - £0
Sky Sports 1 + 2 = £22
BT Sport =£0
BT Sport Europe - £0

BT TV total cost per month for every Premier league and Euro football game available = £22

Corrections welcome.

What are you complaining about?

To watch a live games at football grounds costs more than £5 a month, even if you only went to one game a month.

I think £5 a month to BT is much too cheap to watch live football games, and I am considering sending BT an email suggesting they should charge at least 50% of the cost of a match ticket for each live game. smile

I assume that option has less calories than the normal pack?
