Anyone know if Premier Sports subscription service will be available via BT TV any point in the future?
Now that they've won the rights to PRO14 rugby in the UK I'd be interested in subscribing. Its currently available on Sky and Virgin, but not BT.
Would anyone have any news on getting this on BT ? As I See they have now got Both Scottish League Cup & Cup' s rights now from 2019 !
This may be of interest to you , looks like Eleven Sports is set to close . Taken from a516digital page.
Sports streaming service Eleven Sports could be about to close or curtail its UK operations after failing to sign a carriage deal with any major pay TV operator.
The service launched at the beginning of August, and became the new UK home of Serie A and La Liga football, alongside a selection of other sports. However, it's only been available online and not via any established pay TV operator, such as Sky, Virgin Media or BT TV.
A number of news outlets are reporting today that UFC mixed martial arts coverage rights are being handed back to BT Sport after UFC enacted a break clause in their contract - UFC was due to launch on Eleven Sports next month.
Rights to Serie A and La Liga are being handed back to the original rights owners.
Eleven Sports briefly tried to offer live coverage of Italian and Spanish football during the England & Scotland blackout period on Saturday afternoons before being threatened with legal action. In recent weeks, it's been offering free coverage of Serie A and La Liga via the STV Player.
An Eleven Sports spokesman told the Daily Telegraph:
"Without carriage agreements with the existing platforms, alongside the challenges posed by rampant piracy, the current market dynamics in the UK and Ireland are very hostile for new entrants. We are in discussions with our rights partners, La Liga and IMG, about how we can restructure our existing agreements in order to continue our current OTT [streaming] service."
But then, BT had an actual agreement in place to add Sky Sports Channels nearly two years ago but BT TV customers are still waiting.
ElevenSports eventually switched off last week.
