BT Sport is to stream a regular taster of its rugby union magazine show Rugby Tonight for free on social media platforms Facebook and Twitter providing potential subscribers an opportunity to sample the broadcaster’s show.
The weekly hour-long show will be shown on BT Sport channels, starting tonight from 8pm, and the first quarter on BT Sport Rugby’s Facebook and Twitter feed. The first part of the programme will focus on questions and opinions from the social media platforms to some of the biggest names in rugby, and this will take place throughout the season.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “This is a further sign that BT Sport is at the heart of innovation in sport. Social media enables fans to watch Rugby Tonight on the move for the first part and for those who do not subscribe to BT Sport to see what we offer and sample BT Sport’s approach to sport and strong programming.”
