Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Just ordered BT.

When I checked online, it said I couldn't get BT infinity until Sept 2013.

But when i ordered, I got BT Infinity, so went for the BT Infinity 2 (download 78mb, upload 20, estimate for me was 56 down, and 20 up)

First 3 mths discounted to £20 per mth (then £26), phone rental paid for full year (£129). Delivery charge £6.95 (for equipment)

And £50 sainsbury voucher (and free BT sports and HD)

Will someone start a thread, I decided to plump for BT offer? Am I first?

BT have snatched the rights away from Premier Sports. The Conference have signed a deal with BT worth £300k to broadcast between 25/30 games next season.


http://bullsnews.blogspot.co.uk/2013...-for-conf.html

"Today's Non-League Paper says a deal has been done with the fledgling BT Sport to cover the Conference on their new channels next season.

"Hands have been shaken" on a £300,000 deal that will bring up to 30 games to millions of BT customers, with the new channels being dished out for free to BT Internet users.

Conference chairman Brian Lee told the paper: "It's great news, we've got an agreement in place for next season and it's the news the league wanted."

Lee also tells the paper that they are still searching for a new sponsor for next season, but that the new TV deal will aid that search."

Switching broadband doesn't count. He's still one of the SKY TV gang and probably one of a few people here who knows 100% he's getting BT Sports when it launches.

Don't worry Chad as it will be on Sky and Virgin before it launches unless they want a disaster from launch.

Yes, premature Den (not the ejaculation type )

Still sky tv, at moment, I can't see a better deal on Virgin, and BT isn't in the offing yet.

I can survive 18 mth contract, it will allow me to switch to SKY (and new customer offer) in future (18 mths in future of course).

Sorry to state the obvious but BT Sports is already on Sky , you can subscribe for £12.00 direct with BT for the first year and HD is included , Colin has just took the option of getting free BT Sports by changing his broadband to BT Infinity , I don't blame him its a decent option sadly one thats not currently available to me as we have no date for fibre in our area and switching normal BB would only result in around a 50p saving so not really worth bothering.

Can you get the 16mb option?

That is still worth getting.

Currently Sky is £7.50 BB + £14.50 phone

BT's offer is £16m BB + £10.75 (if pay in advance), but you get BT sport free, and first 6mths BB is free

I was going for that offer, but switched because top package infinity was on offer.
