Hi dacap,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us in our community, I am sorry that you don't have access to BT sports extra, this isn't something we have, we are always looking at ways to improve our service, I will get this fed back.

 

Kind regards

BT SPORT EXTRA is available. My query was why is it only available part of the time. On Thursday and Friday morning the extra service was working for BT subscribers for 3 hours before it came on the Virgin red button.

Hi dacap, 

 

We've tried to re- create this in the office and have had no luck.

 

Leave this with us while we get it investigated.

Re: Bt sport extra

That's a question to put to BT Sport. My preference would have been to have the fake crowd noise on BT Sport Extra and the real stuff on the HD channels.

BTs channels are line fed to Virgin directly by BT. If they wanted us to have Sport Extra in HD they would provide it.

The usual case of a provider that owns channels giving preference to their own customers.

Virgin BB TV Landline. Freeview/Freesat HD, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile. Cable customer since 1993

Re: Bt sport extra

Thank you for the replies.   
I guess the champions league is going to be the same. Very annoying.

Re: Bt sport extra

Hi kreid4,

In the past the Champions League games have all been avaiable on Virgin, they have been showing on 3 or 4 BT channels, and the red button has worked on them as well, so fingers crossed it will still function like that when the Champions League returns. The next round resumes on August 7th and 8th.
