Now you don't need a contract to watch BT's sport content, so no getting tied into its broadband or TV services.
BT may be a little late to the party, but it's making up for it by giving Now TV a run for its money, offering live programming in 4K UHD and High Dynamic Range (HDR) for just £25 per month - something you won't find over on Now TV. The price beats out its sports pass too, with Now TV's coming in at £33.99.
Monthly Pass customers get access to BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport 3, BT Sport ESPN, BT Sport Ultimate, and the BT Sport Extra channels.
Pete Oliver, managing director, marketing for BT’s consumer division, said:
“BT Sport Monthly Pass means that customers can sign up on a flexible monthly basis for the first time and make the most of all the fantastic live sport that we have to offer.
"And with BT Sport Ultimate included, we’re giving customers the very best possible viewing experience. Monthly Pass forms part of BT’s ambition to offer BT Sport customers unrivalled choice and the highest quality broadcasts on even more devices and platforms.”
Again, no-contract monthly passes are nothing new, but it's good to see BT finally jumping on the bandwagon given the smorgasbord of streaming services that people want to flit between on a whim.
As well as being able to watch live matches from UEFA Champions League, Premier League, and Gallagher Premiership Rugby, here's what's on the menu for this coming month:
