BT Sport
« on: May 9, 2013, 02:33:00 AM »
BT is set to give free access to its new sports channel showing live Premier League football to a million subscribers who take its high-speed fibre optic broadband service.

The telco will unveil details of the plan on May 10th when it reveals full-year figures, likely to show profits up five per cent to £2.5billion (€3bn) for the year to March 31st.

BT is also set to reveal the price of BT Sport for subscribers who take the channel direct from BT rather than via rival broadcasters such as Sky. Most estimates expect it to be around £10 a month.

However, BT and Sky are still in talks over whether BT Sport will be offered to Sky on a wholesale basis for Sky to sell on to its ten million-plus subscribers with a bundle of channels. Alternatively, BT could offer the channel direct to Sky subscribers, who would then have to pay two subscriptions. It currently has 770,000 subscribers to BT Vision, which will include BT Sport when it is launched this summer.

BT is reluctant to offer the rights to Sky wholesale as it fears losing its two million customers who watch Sky TV on BT’s broadband service.

I've got SKY HD + ESPN just now so hopefully it will just be the same £10 a month for it as BT Sport bought broadcast rights from ESPN for some of their football, etc, etc.

What will be interesting is the amount the broadcast rights gor for next time once this is up......

Michael Owen is among the latest line-up of presenters, commentators and experts to join BT Sport.

The former England striker, due to retire from football at the end of this season, will take up the role of co-commentator alongside Darren Fletcher – one of the most familiar voices on BBC Radio 5 Live – and Ian Darke, who has covered all 21 seasons of the Barclays Premier League as well as Champions League finals and five World Cups for various broadcasters.

In addition, Premier League referee Mark Halsey joins BT Sport in August in a brand new role in the commentary team working across the channels’ football coverage.

Double Champions League winners Owen Hargreaves and Steve McManaman, as well as former England No1 goalkeeper David James MBE, will be on BT Sport’s team of football experts.

As previously announced, sports broadcaster Jake Humphrey will be the anchor of BT Sport’s 38 exclusively live Barclays Premier League football matches while Ray Stubbs joins as chief football reporter.

Accomplished journalist and sports broadcaster Des Kelly joins BT Sport to present a new sports magazine programme, ‘Life’s a Pitch’.

Award-winning broadcaster Clare Balding will present and co-produce a weekly sports magazine chat show that will feature interviews with major sporting names and discussion of big sporting issues. The show will also shine a spotlight on women’s sport. Meanwhile Tim Lovejoy will present a weekend sports magazine programme along with guest co presenters.

BT Sport will show exclusive coverage of up to 69 live rugby union games from the Aviva Premiership. Coverage will be presented by established broadcaster Craig Doyle. He will be joined by former England captain and lead rugby expert Lawrence Dallaglio. Joining them will be former England internationals Matt Dawson, Ben Kay, Austin Healey and Martin Bayfield.

BT Sport has also signed a deal with the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) to show matches from 21 global tournaments. The greatest female tennis player of all time, Martina Navratilova, will be the channels’ tennis expert and tournament anchor. She joins TV and radio personality Lynsey Hipgrave. BT has also signed up British tennis player Heather Watson to star in the TV advertising campaign.

As already announced, Rio Ferdinand will join as an interviewer, programme-maker and football expert, while BT Sport has signed up several ambassadors who will feature in TV ads and marketing campaigns as well as make regular guest appearances on the new channels.

Gareth Bale will be at the forefront of BT’s marketing campaign. Joining him for the next three years will be Barclays Premier League top scorer Robin van Persie of Manchester United and Arsenal and England star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. BT Sport has also signed up Everton’s Marouane Fellaini, Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen and England and Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Joining as Ambassadors from the world of Rugby Union are England and Harlequins captain Chris Robshaw, Leicester Tigers player Manu Tuilagi, and Saracens’ Owen Farrell.

I'll have to see how good their broadband is. I've been pretty happy with Sky. Well close enough anyway. They don't impose download restrictions or restrict anything so if BT offer the same it would be easy to change over.

I guess it would mean watching the football over the internet if you only buy that package though so it would have be a pretty good connection.

An alternative to the PR spiel (the Lovejoy book review link is worth a look too):

Quote
‘Michael Owen As Lead Co-Commentator’ – BT Sport Football Coverage Sounds Like A Bloody Nightmare!

BT Sport are throwing their launch party as we speak and, Christ Almighty, the tidbits being leaked by journos on Twitter vis-a-vis their football coverage is  already making it sound like some sort of hellish nightmare. If you had to pick your worst possible panel, you probably couldn’t do much worse than BT themselves.
 
Before the live action starts (BT have secured the rights to 38 live Premier League games for 2013/14), viewers will start the morning in the company of the entirely self-absorbed shitsponge that is Tim Lovejoy, who will present a”fresh and innovative Saturday morning sports show”.
 
So…that’ll be a Soccer AM knock-off then, yeah? How very fresh and innovative.
 
(While we’re on the subject of Lovejoy, this never gets old)
 
Bland ex-Bamzooki and F1 anchor Jake Humphreys will be the main man (the omnipresent Claire Balding is also on board in some capacity), with pundit places for Owen Hargreaves, David James and Steve McManamanamanamnanman.
 
Gah!
 
Ian Darke and the actually excellent Darren Fletcher are signed up as the two main commentators, while referee Mike Halsey will also be popping into the studio once in a while to provide an “officials point of view”.
 
And here it is. The smelliest nugget in this big barrel of festering crap kernels: it’s been confirmed that Michael Owen is going to be the channel’s “lead co-commentator”.
 
No. Thank. You. The man is a dullard par excellence. The man talks in binary for crying out loud! That said, there’s a certain wry irony in having a colour commentator who drains all the hue from the world each and every time he opens his mouth.
 
All this for £18 a month.
 
It sounds like one, giant, ill-conceived clusterf**k to us. In fact, it sounds like ITV Digital all over again.
 
We’ll pass.

Good article. Interested in getting it at some point but I can't believe they've given Owen the co-commentary job, have they not watched his tour of Dubai?

Hopefully they see the reaction and shift him to an occasional pundit quickly.

I've been contemplating getting rid of my BT broadband because they throttle the DL speeds at peak times which annoys the shit out of me. Think this might swing it back to keeping it for now.

I just moved to their infinity unlimited package. They do not throttle P2P on that. This football thing sounds too good to be true. Hope it is...

I've got that and it still happens, everyday around 5pm-8pm my download speed is about 10k a sec. Do it at midday and I get 3-5mb

There must be something wrong with your connection. No way does BT Fibre (or any Fibre product) only give 5Mb off-peak.

I have also been reliably informed that BT do NOT throttle their Infinity service.

This is a good move for BT and once the rights for the champions league open up I'm sure they will go for that. They also have exclusive UFC rights too.

No prices confirmed as yet as BT and Sky are still arguing over the wholesale cost to Sky which BT will charge them.  Even if Sky don't make a profit on the subscription charge (very unlikely) they are going to lose a lot of their customers who are likely to move their broadband supply over to BT to take advantage of the inclusive BT Sport part of the package. 

I bet Sky executives are bricking it right now.

The BT Sport website said £12 to Sky customers

EDIT: From the BT Sport website "Alternatively, add BT Sport to your Sky Digital Satellite Platform for £12 a month plus a one-off £15 activation fee. One month minimum term.
You won't pay any monthly charges until the channels launch on 1st August."

I have BT Broadband (Fibre optic not yet reached the countryside!) and as an existing customer have just ordered BT Sport HD to be added for free to my sky package. If you're an existing BT customer you need to order this before August. I will also be able to view this online if I'm away using MyBT log in on their website.  After 12 months free the price seems to be £12 per month plus an extra £3 for HD - so £15 from August 2014

That is my reading of the T&Cs. Channels viewable through Sky box in HD for free for the first year, then £3 per month after for HD. I just signed up today.

Talks have broken down apparently between BT and Sky regarding the cost which BT will charge Sky for carrying the channels on it's platform. This is bad news for Sky who are going to be at a big dis-advantage and i can see Sky subscribers to it's broadband switching in droves to BT unless Sky rapidly comes up with a more competitive pricing schedule.

All this competition can only be good news financially for us subscribers, at least for the first year, after which BT will no doubt bump up the cost in the name of the great god mammon.

I think the prices are confirmed now, Sky and BT did not come to a deal which means you need to get to get the channel activated by BT (rather than by sky which is what happens for ESPN).  Price is £12 per month £15 for HD but it looks like you get HD free for a year if you sign up early.

For most people the best deal will be to swap over their broadband, I personally can't be bothered with the hassle for what will probably work out as £30-£40 per year saving.

What will be interesting is how sky react, their broadband prices will start dropping soon.

It is, but will presumably go encrypted when it launches properly. It's supposedly £12 a month. No announcement of multiroom pricing though and if they think people will pay £12 a box they might be in for a surprise.

It is, can't get cable at mine yet. BT charge £16 for the same package and you're tied in for an extra 6 months and the line rental is more expensive. Supposed to get Infinity by mine in the next year so may switch then.
