What exactly do you mean moves to Sky ? BTSports is available across most platforms it is a stand alone add on that can be added as required or as part of what was Full House package on VM. Do you have a link to the information regarding this

Was just speaking to sky and they said that it’s moving to them in December. So I’m assuming that means it’ll be a chargeable add on with virgin - like it is with sky atm.

It will make no difference to Virgin Media. They have a deal with BT independent of any deal BT has with Sky.

Satellite is an open platform. This allowed BT to sell their sports channels direct to customers, who have BT accounts. Sky now have a wholesale agreement with BT, meaning they can bundle their channels with BTs on customers Sky accounts. As has been said above, this is an agreement between Sky & BT, & is nothing to do with the VM/BT wholesale agreement.
