BT sport and other premium channgels

What are the plans for having BT sport on IPTV?  Also are any other channels in the pipeline?
Not having a sports channel is a killer blow for many people like myself

Re: BT sport and other premium channgels

The real clincher for me would be ALL BT Sport and Sky Sport Channels in HD + the educational channels (Discovery etc) in HD at a price significantly less than what I'm paying now. I don't really want kids telly or the shopping and soft porn channels, big earners for the carriers but a waste of bandwidth IMHO.
I Did a price comparison check to see if moving my phone and Broadband to Sky would make it any cheaper. Bearing in mind I would have to pay full price for BT Sport instead of the current PN price it actually works out more than my current Sky/PN arrangement  Crazy
So here I am, really wanting to stick with PN but needing to reduce the stupendous cost at the moment. It's now looking unlikely that I'll move from my Sky package given they have all the cricket this summer including the holy grail of 'the ashes' but with ITV showing the Rugby World Cup this autumn and BT Sport having exclusive Premiership Rugby for the next few years I could be changing come September!
Plusnet has a golden opportunity to provide a comprehensive and first class package of BB/Phone/TV the only obstruction I can see is mummy BT flexing it's muscles and sitting on PN innovation which to my mind is anti competitive, which would be a shame.

Re: BT sport and other premium channgels

I wonder if any announcement on bt sport coming to plusnet TV , may be waiting for the new pricing for champions league/ Europa league that is due to be announced next week. Bt need to make some of the money back from the rights so I can't imagine it won't be offered via plusnet TV.
