Sky Sports 1 and 2 Coming to BT Boxes Today

By Gary Cutlack on at

Those who watch BT TV through YouView boxes will soon be able to access the two main Sky Sports channels, with the football-centred channels appearing on the EPG today thanks to the end of a court battle over restrictions.

The move means YouView boxes can now access BT Sport, ESPN, Sky Sports 1 and 2 and the Eurosport channels, which ought to ensure enough sport is on offer through the day and night to end even the most understanding of marriages this Christmas.

This also means BT can now stop selling the old Vision+ boxes to subscribers, as these were the only way it was able to offer Sky Sports access through its bundles. £22 a month gets YouView users the two sport channels, or £16.50 for just the one. [BT]
