I am working on the premise that, like last time round when we first got BT Sport, that no news is good news. We did not hear until the last moment but then got it with no additional charge as it was incorporated in to the XL pack.

 

The general consensus was that BT wanted as many customers to buy it directly from them first. So, if this happens again and we do not hear until the last moment, but end up with a good deal then I would take that.

 

Or again, maybe some extended version of last year's Sky Sports Season Ticket deal but with both Sky Sports and BT Europe included this time round.

 

Just my thoughts.

 

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Re: its about time we knew what btsport europe is going to cost ?

Hello

 

We haven't announced the price change on this site or elsewhere as we're writing individually to all of our affected customers to make that sure each of you has right set of info that’s valid for you contractually.


Unfortunately, we were required to make a last-minute change to these letters and emails by the channel, which delayed our ability to send these out as originally scheduled.

 

The price change only affects those of you on packages that contain the XL TV selection, or who have the BT Sport add-on on a M or L TV package.

 

We've decided to absorb a lot of the additional costs of carrying BT Sport Europe HD, as we know that so many of our customers want it, while still keeping our top package very competitive in terms of number of channels, broadband speeds and price. 

 

Regards

 

James

So if you hadn't "absorbed" it you would have increased the XL price by £5, we should be thankful for small mercies

So once again those of us with XL TV who aren't in the slightest bit interested in watching football are having to subsidise those who are.

 

I don't suppose there are any plans for a TV package with all the HD channels but no sport.

 

I've just spoken to customer services about this, but they didn't even know there was going to be another increase. Can we cancel our contracts without penalty because of this above inflation price rise?
