As BT deal kicks off, Sky launches new combined packages


After a previous soft-launch, Sky has today officially introduced new sports packages that combine Sky Sports and BT Sport for the first time on Sky TV.

Customers have been able to phone Sky in recent weeks to get BT Sport added to their packages, but as part of a cross-supply deal with BT that kicks in today, Sky customers can now opt for one the following packages from Sky:

  • Sky Sports and BT Sport: £35 per month alongside an existing Sky TV subscription, the new package combines all the sport from Sky Sports and BT Sport and saves sports fans 35% on standalone monthly subscriptions.
  • Sky Sports and BT Sport + Sky Entertainment: £47 a month - a saving of over 40% on standalone monthly subscriptions.
  • BT Sport: for those that prefer greater flexibility, it’s £25 a month to bolt on BT Sport to an existing Sky TV package.

With the combined offer, Sports fans can enjoy a feast of football fixtures from the Premier League, UEFA Europa League, Scottish Premiership, Emirates FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League; all the action from the pit lanes and tracks of F1 around the world; every tee off and putt from all four majors, and every wicket from every England home Test, ODI, T20 and the ICC Women’s and Men’s T20 World Cup. Fans will also be able to enjoy Gallagher Premiership Rugby, UFC and MotoGP.

The BT Sport channels will also be HD as standard and available on Sky Go across mobiles and tablets. There will be no additional fees for multiroom access on Q, or for the full BT Sport VOD catalogue.

Previously, customers who wanted BT Sport on Sky had to go through BT, who billed customers separately for the service.

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.
