Chris’s Sport on Freeview Guide – Issue 2

Hello – I’m back and I start off this week with a short “Q and A” with BT Sport.

BT-Sport

Chris – There were some occasions last year where BT Sport was free to view, particularly for some Aviva games on Sky, and also a couple of other occasions.  Will there be similar chances this season for non-BT Sport viewers to sample the coverage?

BT – “Last season, BT Sport offered fans several opportunities to sample our programming, shows and presenters on an open basis. When we’re ready to share plans for next season, we will let our viewers know.”

Chris – “For any fans with just Freeview out there, why should they upgrade to BT for the new season?”

BT – “There are a number of ways that Freeview homes can access BT Sport. They can take BT Broadband and gain access to BT Sport – free- via our website and app. Or, they can take BT Infinity and get access to YouView to watch BT Sport –  free – on their TV sets. BT Sport is free with BT Broadband and BT Infinity for the coming season, giving Freeview homes an extra incentive to sign up”

Chris – “Is there any details yet on how BT and BBC will split the FA Cup coverage from this season?”

BT – “BT Sport’s live match FA Cup coverage begins from the first Round in November and we’ll follow the tournament from before that as opportunities arise in our support shows. When we’re able to share further details we will.

I thank BT Sport for their interview and we’ll keep in touch with them during the 2014/15 season – and if you want to activate BT Sport before the start of the season visit www.btsport.com for more information.
