    Best TV & Broadband Package for Sport

    Best TV & Broadband Package for Sport 1st May 19 at 2:07 PM
    Hi

    I want to get Sky TV with sports and also want the BT Sport channels. I am considering getting BT fibre broadband (as a new customer) Does anyone know if a discount is still offered against BT Sport if you're a BT Broadband customer and what the best package would be?

    Anyone have any tips on the most cost efficient way of having Sky TV (with sports) whilst being able to get BT Sport too. I know that it's mega expensive to add BT Sport as an add-on channel through Sky

    Thanks in advance,
    Tim.

    BT charge 5 for BT sports a month last i knew, maybe its gone up? It used be free but then they wanted to charge so i dropped it. For Sky Sports, I tend to use NowTV day passes and occasionally week passes if a few games i want to watch. Depending on how much sport you watch, might be a option for you?

    A Virgin Media package with both would be the first one to look at .
    BT Sports on Sky 15 pm

    BT Sports with BT up to 50 meg is 51 pm including line rental .

    Edit: Apparently it's been moved to "mid 2019" so maybe by July ready for next season?
