New Sky TV packages combine Sky Sports and BT Sport in one single subscription

Friday 21 February 2020

Today Sky launches two new sports packages that combine Sky Sports and BT Sport channels for the first time on Sky TV, bringing together major tournaments from across the sporting world, including the Premier League from Sky Sports and BT Sport, and the Emirates FA Cup and UEFA Champions League from BT Sport

Sport fans can now easily find all the sport they love in one place, with all eight Sky Sports channels and BT Sport channels – BT Sport 1, 2, 3 and BT ESPN – together in one subscription.

The three new sports packages are available from today, exclusively on Sky TV:

  • Sky Sports and BT Sport: at just £35 per month [1] alongside their Sky TV subscription, the new package combines all the sport from Sky Sports and BT Sport and saves sports fans an incredible 35% on standalone monthly subscriptions.
  • Sky Sports and BT Sport, plus Sky Entertainment: all the great sport from both Sky Sports and BT Sport, plus award-winning entertainment and thousands of shows on over 300 Sky TV and 40 catch up channels with Sky Entertainment for just £47 a month [2] - a saving of over 40% on standalone monthly subscriptions.
  • BT Sport: for those that prefer greater flexibility, it's £25 a month [3] to bolt on BT Sport to an existing Sky TV package.

Sports fans can enjoy a feast of football fixtures from the Premier League, UEFA Europa League, Scottish Premiership, Emirates FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League; all the action from the pit lanes and tracks of F1 around the world; every tee off and putt from all four majors, and every wicket from every England home Test, ODI, T20 and the ICC Women’s and Men’s T20 World Cup. Fans will also be able to enjoy Gallagher Premiership Rugby, UFC and MotoGP™. Plus, customers can access all the best entertainment, TV and movies.

With Sky Q’s Voice Search it’s easy to find a specific sport, channel, match, or race from Sky Sports and BT Sport. The BT Sport channels will also be HD as standard and available on Sky Go across mobiles and tablets. There will be no additional fees for multiroom access on Q, or for the full BT Sport VOD catalogue.

The new packages launch just in time for Leicester City vs. Manchester City on Sky Sports on Saturday and the head-to-head between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur on BT Sport.

Lyssa McGowan, Chief Consumer Officer, Sky said:Our customers have always loved sport and we’re delighted to now be able to offer them even more. From the excitement of the UEFA Champions League, Tiger Woods defending The Masters and the rise of Fallon Sherrock, 2020 is a huge year of sport. Now, through our partnership with BT and the launch of our new sports packages, millions of fans can watch all the sports they love."

‘It might not be January 31st but what a great signing for Sky Sports customers! More sport, whenever you want it, all in one place.’

In 2020, Sky will also start building Sky Studios Elstree, Europe’s leading production Studio resulting in 2000 new jobs and £3bn production investment in UK creative sector expected in first five years.
