Has it been announced anywhere what the new charge will be? I don't think I've seen anything. The wholesale price of Sky Sports increases next month, I haven't seen any mention from BT what the new price will be either. Whilst it would be nice for BT to absorb the cost, surely they'll pass on the price rise like Virgin has?
I think these are the imminent wholesale changes but may be wrong. Wholesale going up by roughly a couple of quid? Place your bets for any possible BT price changes. Possibly they will wait until the normal annual rises in Dec?
From Oct 2014:
Wholesale: SS1=£15.13, SS2=£??.??, Both=£23.16
BT Prices: SS1=£16.50, SS2=£16.50, Both=£22.00
From Jun 2015:
Wholesale: SS1=£17.01, SS2=£16.80, Both=£25.34
BT Prices: ???
I dont take the two Sky Sports channels as I think they are dear a month for what I would watch.
Im also glad I never tane them for Sky Sports 2 has been full of cricket the lest few weeks and cricket dont intrest me.
Sky have always dear for there channels.
I'm "thinking" of doing the same ........ next few yrs of European Football will be on BTSport so it will be much more economical to watch the few extra bits I want from Sky (some Prem Lge games and some F1) with a sports pass (day or week) ..... if they stay around the same price !!!! ........ I find Sky Sports SD a bit naff anyway ...... they should grow up & release a full Sports pack to BT/Youview (SD &/or HD) like they do for Virgin .......... but I don't think there is much chance of them becoming "adult"
