Sports packages

I have the basic Virgin TV  package and wonder what is the best sports package to add to this?

Rugby Union is BT Sports, well the Premiership is. There's other leagues on Sky Sports. Sky also have shedloads of cricket including all the England games. They have pretty much every other test going, think its a cheap time filler for them to be honest. IPL was on ITV4 but is moving to Sky this year.

Re: Sports packages

Rugby union is split actually, but for club rugby BT Sports show the lions share.

Domestic Premiership is BT Sports (ITV show weekly highlights)

European Cup is split between BT & Sky, but BT get first pick (and the majority) of the British clubs in Europe

Sky show the England (Twickenham) home internationals live, BBC show highlights.

You may not realise that BT Sports is included within the XL-package, so that's worth factoring into any calculations as to whether you're better off paying for the BT-Sports bundle separately, or stumping up for XL and getting it included.

Re: Sports packages

Depends what you want to watch. If you were to upgrade to M+, you would get the Eurosport channels. BT Sports & Sky Sports are standalone premium bundles. Not sure whether you need to be on M+ to subscribe to these anyway.
