Just a quick reminder. The BTCare Community Forums are intended for the discussion of issues related to BT products and services. Please keep your posts within the guidelines. It’s ok to chat about BT pricing for Sky Sports etc but there are quite a few posts on this thread moving off topic so please stick to the guidelines. Discussing Sky’ pricing and offers is not allowed.
The new Sky Sports Extra channel being supplied to BT only is NOT the same channel as Sky Sports Xtra in its current form. Both Sky and BT have confirmed that the ONLY content on this channel, and the only time it will actually be on air, is when they have to put a Premier League football match on it because of a clash with something on the Main Event channel. There will be NO La Liga, rugby league, or ANY other programming on there, ONLY the odd Premier League game.
So Sky are making you buy two channels, as before all the Premier league football was on Sky Sports 1. Now it looks like it will be over 2 channels meaning you have to take both now.
