BT Sport is available across several platforms and numerous subscription providers. You can compare the deals for each of these using the tools above.
BT Broadband, TV or Mobile
BT Sport is native to BT’s services and is available at a discounted rate with a TV, broadband or mobile subscription. There’s also an option to sign up for a pay-as-you-go BT Sport Monthly Pass, without a contract or rolling subscription.
Virgin Media TV
The complete BT Sport Pack can be added to all of Virgin Media’s TV packages for an added monthly fee. Since shortly after becoming TNT Sports in September 2023, BT Sport is no longer available as part of a Virgin Media bundle. Unfortunately it now has to be added separately, and at additional cost.
You can add full BT Sport coverage to your existing Sky TV subscription or sign up for an 18-month contract with the Sky TV & BT Sport bundle. The results above show you the current best deals.
Plusnet broadband – if you have a Sky satellite dish
You can watch BT Sport if you have Plusnet broadband and a Sky set-top box and satellite dish. You don’t need a Sky TV subscription or Sky viewing card, but will need to pay an added monthly fee to Plusnet for BT Sport coverage. You can also watch BT Sport through your Sky TV subscription with Plusnet, if you have one, or you can sign up to watch using BT’s mobile and TV apps as an add-on from Plusnet. You have the option to upgrade to BT Sport HD channels too.
BT Sport Showcase used to be a free to air TV channel available on Freeview, but this is no longer the case. Now you either need to pay for a monthly or one-off subscription through BT or one of the providers above. You can access limited content on BT Sport’s YouTube channel, but if it’s live or full matches you’re after, you’ll need to subscribe or add BT Sport on to your current package.

BT Sport is available as a monthly add-on to your TalkTalk subscription, but you need to sign up through BT and it’s only available on a 1-month contract.
