BT Sport Channels Now Available in HD on Virgin Media

The two BT Sport channels and their ESPN overseas exchange student buddy are now available on Virgin Media, with the cable network providing them for free to anyone who currently subscribes to the Virgin XL TV bundle.

The new sport channels will also appear for streaming through the Virgin TV Anywhere catch-up service, plus, if you're not an XL user, the BT and ESPN channels can be added to any package for £15 a month. Which is a bit of a costly way of going about it, no doubt to encourage people to simply upgrade to XL. [Virgin Media]
