BT Vision readies Sky Sport for DTT

May 14, 2010

BT has confirmed that, after Ofcom's pay-TV review, it has reached a deal with Arqiva, the communications infrastructure and media services company, for DTT capacity so that it is in a position to offer Sky Sports 1 and 2 to its BT Vision customers.

BT is aiming to bring Sky Sports 1 and 2 to viewers in time for the new 2010/11 Premier League season, though if it sells discounted packages it will risk Sky overturning Ofcom regulated wholesale pricing.
