Sky has launched two new sports packages that bring together both the Sky and BT Sport channels.
Although BT Sport has been available to Sky customers they have needed to go directly through BT.
All eight Sky Sports channels are now available, alongside BT Sport 1, 2, 3 and BT ESPN. Customers can pay £35 per month for the combined sports package or £25 to add BT Sport to any other Sky package. The cost of the Sky Sports eight-channel package is £23.
The combined offer will go someway to easing the pain for football fans with BT holding the rights to the bulk of Premier League matches not shown by Sky, as well as its exclusive rights to the Champions League and Europa League competitions.
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.”
Earlier this week BT TV announced a revamp of its packages that include access to Sky’s Now TV Streaming service.
