Here's where to view BT Sport this season

Eir customers will be happy to hear that BT Sport will be back on Eir...but for a fee.

BT Sport this year is going to have a compelling list of sports for fans to sink their teeth into. This includes, but is not limited to: football action from the Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup, SPL, La Liga, Serie A, and Bundesliga, as well as boxing, UFC, tennis, and some rugby. Just to name a few!

But due to rights arrangements changing there has been a great deal of consternation and confusion about where and how sport fans can procure the coveted channels for the upcoming season.

Well, today we're going to break down where you can catch all the sport you can handle on the increasingly popular channel.

Eir customers

You might remember that a lot of the aforementioned consternation arose when Eir announced that BT Sport was being pulled from the Eir Sport pack, meaning Eir customers would no longer get the channels for free. 

Well now Eir has announced that you'll still be able to watch BT Sport... but for a fee. 

Eir TV customers who already have Sky Sports can add BT Sport and Premier Sports onto their package for €9.99 a month for the first six months, and then €19.99 a month thereafter. This gives a first-year additional cost of €179.88 for the BT Sport channels.

Eir TV customers without Sky Sports can just add the BT Sport and Premier Sports pack by itself for €14.99 a month for the first six months, and €33.99 thereafter. This gives a first-year cost of €293.88.

While it's welcome news that Eir customers can still access BT Sport this season, having to fork out almost €300 a year for something that was once free will come as a hard blow to many sports fans.

Meanwhile if you want to view BT Sport and Premier Sports in HD you'll need to purchase a HD Pack for an additional €4.99 per month.

The initial six-month discount promotion is available until 31st August.

Where else will have it?

Well as of yet the only other supplier who has announced that they will have BT Sport is Sky, who won the rights from Eir a few months back. This will also be available in the form of an add-on.

Called the Sky Sports Extra package, it will have all of the Sky Sports channels as well as BT Sport and Premier Sports for an extra €10 a month for the first six months and €20 a month thereafter for existing Sky Sports customers. 

This will be a first-year additional cost of €180.

For non Sky Sports customers, it's €17 per month for the first six months and €34 thereafter. This will give a first-year cost of €306.
