BT to offer Sky Sports 1 and 2

Sky and BT have signed a contract for the wholesale supply of Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 to BT.

The contract means that BT customers will be able to sign up for the subscription channels from early July. BT Vision customers will be able to view Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 from August 1, in time for the start of the Premier League football season on August 14.

Gavin Patterson, chief executive of BT Retail, said: "We are delighted to have reached this milestone, which means that we can be certain of offering Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 to our customers before the football season kicks off. We know our customers will be keen to sign up for the two channels."

BT will be revealing its pricing shortly.
