Unannounced but Sky's bid for the rights failed, and BT apparently didn't bid.

I read the announcement to mean that it was another platform. Indeed if it was Premier Sports, there would be no need for the delay.

S4C are still in talks with Pro14 to possibly continue covering some games in Welsh language only. Likely that Pro14 will want to announce the final outcome in one go after all talks have finished.

How do you access Premier Sports eg If you have Bt Broadband and an unbundled Sky Tv Satellite dish ?🤔

Through the website you can subscribe via Sky, Virgin Media TV or their own online player. You'll probably have to provide details of your Sky card that goes in the box for them to enable it.

I'm moving house before next season and am planning on going with BT for broadband and TV package, so only option i'll have is the online player.

The Virgin Media option is standard def only which is pretty poor.

Have you seen how much it is to add BT sports to your current Sky TV package, it's nearly 30 notes a month! ShockedShockedShocked and then a further subscription for Premier Sports, which I think is £10 extra a month.

Unfortunately for me, I have Sky TV, Fibre and Phone line all in one package, so it isn't a straight forward simple step to swap everything over to BT. Not sure what channels BT offer with regards to Kids channels, movies and box sets etc, but the rest of the family all use those channels. So to get rid of those, I'd probably need to sell a kidney. LOLLOLLOL

The point is you no longer need Sky Sports to watch any of our games, which if i recall correctly is about £30 on its own. If you'd only want to catch 6-9 of our European games on BT next season that it's not worth signing up to and heading to a pub is a better option.

Thanks Minded. How life has changed since the days of BBC1 BBC2 and ITV as our TV decisions. You only needed 3 fingers !!!Wink

If you don't have a Smart TV, buy a Google chromecast and you can send the pic via smartphone/tablet to your TV. (Other casting devices are available)

If you have a Sky Box, cancel the sports (stop subsidising them over-paid soccer players!!) and add Premier Sports HD for £10/ month.




We're still still here!
