Virgin Media: “We’re cheapest place to watch Premier League”

July 29, 2019

Virgin Media has declared it has the cheapest prices – and is the most convenient way – to watch all of the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League action in one place.

Virgin Media’s Bigger+Sports bundle is currently priced at £65 (€72) per month for new customers and is home to all Sky Sports channels in HD as well as BT Sport in HD and 4K.

This is the cheapest like-for-like deal – including broadband and landline calls – currently available for football fans, Virgin Media says, with average monthly costs for Sky £103.58, TalkTalk £95.66 and BT £86.68. Over a period of 12 months, Virgin Media customers could make a saving of £463 when compared to Sky.

BT Sport in 4K Ultra HD and Amazon Prime Video on Virgin Media

With Virgin Media, football fans can watch BT Sport’s Premier League and UEFA Champions League and Europa League matches in 4K, which isn’t currently available on Sky. Also not available on Sky is the Amazon Prime Video app which Virgin Media recently added to its TV platform.

It means that football fans can watch Amazon’s two rounds of Premier League fixtures in December – including the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton and Manchester United vs Tottenham – through their set top box. And with Virgin Media’s ultrafast broadband connectivity, football fans can stream multiple matches in confidence while other family members never need to worry about gaming, streaming or video chatting at the same time.

With the Premier League and UEFA Champions League and Europa League matches appearing across three different platforms, Virgin Media is the most convenient way for football fans to view all the action in a single place. This means that customers have the complete convenience to access all matches on their TV using one remote.

Virgin Media’s Bigger+Sports bundle also comes with Eurosport and ESPN in HD as well as FreeSports which includes a range of other sporting events such as athletics, golf, rugby, snooker and winter sports.

David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: “Sports fans looking for their football fix next season need to look no further than Virgin Media. We’re, once again, bringing all of the football to Virgin TV in a single place with the cheapest UK packages all underpinned by our unrivalled ultrafast broadband. With the addition of Amazon Prime Video to our TV platform, as well BT Sport’s Ultra HD 4K channel and Sky Sports, Virgin TV remains the home of televised football.”
