Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

The rumour on DS Forums was BT Sport would cost those who took Sky Sports £14.99 and £24.99 for those who don't sub to Sky Sports if true I'd like to think that includes HD and Multiscreen.

You'd think so, eh? I hope you're right, for their sakes. Everyone needs HD and multiscreen these days (apart from the Mr K's of this world)!

No offence, Mr K!

£24.99 for those who don't subscribe to SKY Sports doesn't sound right. I know it's just a rumour but pricing it cheaper than SKY Sports doesn't make good business sense. Why sell your rivals product cheaper than your own on your own platform?

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

I’d guess that if you are Sky to the “non-Sky Sports subscriber” at that price it’s high enough most would opt for the usually discounted Sky Sports.

Don't shoot the messenger , as I said someone posted it on DS Forum the truth is we'll just have to wait for an official press release.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

It is currently £30 to subscribe to BT Sport in HD on Sky - so £5 cheaper could be correct which £15 off for Sky Sport subscribers.

That statement makes sense if they were the same product but Sky Sports has a far larger budget and more content so you would expect it to cost more. That being said, Sky is currently offering Sky Sports with HD to customers for £23pm so that would undercut the suggested £25pm price for BT Sport.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

I'd guess at those price points it'd be far more likely a subscriber Sky Sports or takes both (at £38 I'm guessing on offer) than pays £25 for BT alone.

Not if you want to watch Moto GP and have no interest in football, circket and golf

That’s why I said “most” and not “all”, there will always be a narrow set of exceptions.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

I can't tell what this is, maybe a disguised new service rather than a move within the network, but there are new HD streams on multiplex/stream alongside Premier Sports 2 HD now.

One is an HD stream and the screengrab has a VM Love logo from its promo reel.
The other is an HD stream with a Sky Cinema logo on its screengrab.

Showing on Tsid13/C047 on Digital Bit Rate website.
