BT has announced that its sports channel will remain free with BT Broadband for another season, giving viewers free access to Premier League and FA Cup football, Rugby Union, and MotoGP.

New and re-contracting customers of BT Broadband will receive BT Sport as part of their broadband package. Non BT Broadband customers can also watch the channels if they have a Sky satellite box.

BT Sport is currently £12 a month in standard definition and £15 a month in high definition. Virgin Media customers can also access the BT Sport channels for the same price or as part of their package if they take XL broadband from Virgin.

“Fans have been the winners with BT Sport,” said John Petter, BT Consumer chief executive.

“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.”
