BT has expanded its sports offering with the addition of Discovery-operated Eurosport.
The channel will be made available to subscribers of the Big Sport and VIP packages, with on demand also being made available from the BT Player and BT TV app. BT said that the price of the packages will remain the same at £65 per month and £40 per month for the VIP and BIg Sport packs respectively.
The deal will bring Eurosport’s two channels to customers, with Eurosport acting as an official Olympic broadcaster for this summer’s games in Tokyo.
Siena Pakington, content director, BT said, “The addition of Eurosport to our flexible TV packages makes BT TV the destination for sports fans. With an exciting spring and summer of sport coming up, our customers will be ready to enjoy all the action from the comfort of their own home.”
Lydia Fairfax, SVP, head of commercial partnerships, EMEA, Discovery said, “We’re thrilled to extend our partnership with BT to offer customers of Big Sport and VIP access to Eurosport 1 and 2 at no extra cost. As the number one sport destination in Europe, we connect passionate fans with their favourite sports, including the tennis Grand Slams, the Grand Tour cycling events, and of course the Olympic Games this summer.”
