Sky agree to make BT Sport available to all of their Irish subscribers
Great news for sports fans.
Both Sky and BT Sport have both stepped their game up in recent years.
BT Sport have had every single Champions League game on their channels, and a mixture of the late kick-off and early kick-off in Saturday Premier League games.
And Sky remains a must for sports fans for the sheer amount of sport that they show. Most recently, they have added absolutely loads of NBA games, and still have the rights to almost every single Premier League game on Sundays.
And from next summer onward, Irish customers who have a Sky TV package will have their choice of sports on Sky and now BT Sports through a single subscription.
This means that those who are subscribed to Sky TV in Ireland will now have access to the massive range of sport that BT have to offer.
JD Buckley, managing director of Sky Ireland, welcomed this news, saying: "This is fantastic news for Sky customers in Ireland who will now be able to access all matches on Sky and BT channels from the Premier League, Champions League and Heineken Champions Cup rugby directly with a single Sky TV subscription."
Sounds good to us. Roll on next summer.
