Sign up for BT Sport before they put the prices up!
At the moment, all BT broadband customers with a BT TV package can get BT Sport – which includes the BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 2 channels – included for no extra charge, and if you already have Sky TV, you can also get BT Sport 1 and 2 added free if you have BT broadband.
But from Saturday Feb 1, if you're new to BT, you'll have to sign up to BT Infinity broadband to get the two BT Sport channels on your TV. This costs £8 a month more, or £96 a year more compared to BT's cheapest broadband and line rental deal. If that’s not enough sport, you can fill your boots with ESPN on TV with a BT Infinity subscription.
After Saturday, if you sign up to BT's regular broadband, you'll only get access to BT Sport via its app and online player – you won't be able to watch it on your television, which is kind of the point really. Even as someone who dislikes the charade of football, squinting away at a tiny screen is no way to enjoy it. So soccerball fans, GET TO IT.
