Sky Sports coming to terrestrial

Sky Sports is coming to digital terrestrial via IPTV service BT Vision and Top Up TV.

The Guardian report BT and Top Up TV “have confirmed they will launch cut-price subscriptions to Sky Sports channels in time for the new football season, making them available on digital terrestrial television for the first time since ITV Digital went bust in 2002… the telecoms company is understood to be planning to offer Sky Sports 1 to its existing broadband/DTT customers for about £15 a month, while Top Up TV is expected to offer Sky Sports 1 and 2 for about £20 a month.”.

It’s now possible to launch Sky Sports on the terrestrial platform after a ruling from Ofcom said they must make their channels more widely available and offer them at a more reasonable price.
