Sky Sports and BT Sport - Free of Charge?

Sky have announced that they are allowing customers to pause their Sky Sports subscriptions without penalty and are therefore making them free of charge during the current period when there's no live sport to watch. Are Virgin Media doing the same for their customers who watch Sky Sports via the Virgin platform? Also what about BT Sport? Will a deduction be made for that given as there's no live sport worth watching on that now either?

Interesting. Anybody at Virgin have a response? I'd want to do this. Nobody watches Sky Sports for the original content.

They did not announce that. You have twisted it.  You pause the subscription to Sky Sports, but you cannot watch it.

That's what he said. 

They're pausing the subscriptions so that they don't show on your monthly bill until you reactivate. 

I wasn't confused by the post.

Re: Sky Sports and BT Sport - Free of Charge?

You can still watch Sky Sports without paying for it:

 

  • Your Sports subscription payment will be paused until the action resumes
  • All 11 Sky Sports channels plus your recordings will remain available
  • As soon as the action returns, we will reinstate your Sports subscription. You don’t need to do anything.

Re: Sky Sports and BT Sport - Free of Charge?

So does that mean Virgin will automatically be reducing our bill for the Sky Sports amount or do we have to ask for it?

Is this available for Virgin customers or Sky only?

Not sure but I’d guess this will be Sky subscribers only and Virgin will continue to charge us all.

Re: Sky Sports and BT Sport - Free of Charge?

I don't pay Sky. Sky Sports is sold to me by Virgin.
