I knew it was coming, it would have been silly for them not to have it on VM. Lets hope pricing is announced soon

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

I thought all the angst was because the thought was that it wasn't going to be free as part of the larger package (sorry, can't think what the "large package" is on virgin, and not keen on dwelling on thoughts of large packages )

So will all be happy if they get it same price as sky (re 12 and 15 with HD)?

The XL Pack

I reckon ESPN and ESPN HD will stay in XL as they are now as part of the deal they all ready have and BT Sport channels will be at same cost as Sky.

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

Well as many of us said we were always going to get it. Yes it doesn't say anything about HD but maybe VM decided to get a great price for just SD? Who knows.


I will pay a it more for it but not a lot more.

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

I wonder when the BT Sport loop video will update with details to say it will be available on VM. Also do people think that VM customers will be able to watch online and via the app like BT customers and Sky customers can?

There is an advert out that says that Sky customers are getting BT Sports as part of the sports package.

VM pull your finger out.

exactly.

We've move to Sky for TV and BT Phone & Internet. With the deals we're saving 580 in the first 12 months.

Even when the offers have ended we will be saving 5.54 per month and that's before and cost for BT is factored in.

If Virgin charge 12 that will be a significant saving of 210.48 per year.

The foreign football is going to be on the BT channels not ESPN.

Not sure what content will be on ESPN but don't think it's going to be anything significant. Though there it's not clear whether the FA Cup will still be on the ESPN branded channel.
