That Tweet seems very definite. BT can't just say that if they have actually penned a deal with VM. Plus it's backed up by the fact that BT has been targeting us VM customers directly for the past few weeks.

From BT official twitter account, we won't be getting BTSport anytime soon.

It is quite clear that the new customers for BT generated since the offers opened number 23k. The others are transfers. As I said that is derisory.

Well according to VMs super communications that some people on here think are great, I can still watch all my favourite ESPN channels until the end of July. Game on!

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

A FM has put a statement from BT on DS..

Quote:
BT confirms no agreement to put BT Sport on Virgin Media
Wednesday 31 July 2013 16:02:02 by Andrew Ferguson
After some speculation on Monday that Virgin Media may have been about to add BT Sport to its cable TV packages, BT has issued a statement that confirms that no wholesale agreement has been reached yet.

"Following the large number of enquiries from Virgin Media customers and press speculation, we can confirm that we have not agreed a wholesale deal for BT Sport with Virgin Media. But we are open to doing it at the right price and talks continue. In the meantime, we have an excellent offer for Virgin customers who move to either BT TV or to satellite."

BT statement on possibility of wholesale access to BT Sport by Virgin Media
Today is the last day Virgin Media cable customers will have access to ESPN if it was in their package line-up, the question now is whether the right price for BT can be shuffled around to be the right price for Virgin Media.

BT will of course not be worrying too much if when it looks at the numbers of new customers on its Infinity service a good number of them are arriving from Virgin Media. For those BT customers looking to commit to a new 12 month contract or have 12 months or more left to run on their contract and want access to BT Sports on their Sky satellite TV service or BT TV box, today is the last day that you can order BT Sport and get the HD upgrade for free. It is also the last day for the current batch of 40 and 60 Sainsbury vouchers for new signups to BT Broadband and Infinity.

The answer form BT exactly the same as the 1st time.

"It is not available on Virgin Media" ...er yep we know it's not NOW lol.

I think some people really are in denial I am afraid. They can't just tweet something like that as fact. Plus a statement has been issued by BT backing it up.

Exactly! BT have issued a statement that they are in talks. NOT that BT sports won't be available!

BT Sport launch to be free and open to all

BT says the launch of its new BT Sport channels will be available free to all homes with Freeview, TV from BT or Sky.

Launching tomorrow (August 1st), the channels will offer football fans 38 Barclays Premier League matches per season.

Broadcast from the Olympic Park in East London, they’ll also carry exclusive Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) coverage and 800 hours of live tennis, including the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships.

The channels will get underway with a special first night live show featuring many of their presenters, experts, commentators plus special guests.

Featured talent will include Jake Humphrey, Clare Balding, Craig Doyle, Michael Owen, Steve McManaman, David James, Owen Hargreaves, Matt Dawson, Lynsey Hipgrave, Gary McAllister, Martin Bayfield, Anne Keothavong, Kim Little, Scott Redding, Neil Hodgson, Darrell Currie, Darren Fletcher, Sam Smith, Rosi Sexton, John Hathaway, Christian Howes, Des Kelly, Tom Watt, Caroline DeMoraes, Ian Darke, Ray Stubbs, Austin Healey, Ben Kay, Sarra Elgan, Eniola Aluko and Helen Skelton.

BT says the show will simulcast on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 2 until the moment the two channels become independent. Viewers will then see Jake Humphrey heading to the football studio to cover the Audi Cup on BT Sport 1 and Craig Doyle in the BT Sport rugby studio covering the JP Morgan Asset Management 7s on BT Sport 2.

Announcing the ‘free to all’ launch, John Petter, managing director, BT Retail Consumer, said: “It’s finally a reality that ‘Great sport happens here’. It’s just over a year since we secured our Barclays Premier League rights and only six months since we started to build our exciting new studio in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. We have some tremendously talented presenters and experts who are passionate about sport.

“The customers are the ones that matter and now they will be able to see the programmes for themselves. We‘re convinced they’re going to like what they see, and we’re absolutely committed to making BT Sport fun, innovative and a firm favourite with the fans.”

BT is offering the channels free to all broadband customers online and via smartphone and tablet apps. In addition, customers with a BT Vision+ or YouView from BT set top box and infinity broadband will be able to watch the channels on their TVs.

The company is also making the channels available for free to its broadband customers who have a Sky+ box and to Sky broadband and TV subscribers in return for a monthly fee.

No carriage deal has been agreed with broadband rival Virgin Media.

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

IF, BT Sports is NOT on VM by the time the football season starts - l will stand by my word and switch over to Sky.

I will not be treated in a disgraceful manner by a company that wants things on the cheap, when at the end of the day it will be us in the end that pays for it.

At the end of the day - l as the customer, not some low life in the street. VM did this with us over the basic package, and its about time VM realised that without customers, they would not be in business.
