BT TV has bolstered its sporting line-up with the addition of the Eurosport channels to its flexible packages at no additional cost.
BT is lining up a spring and summer of sport for customers who subscribe to its TV packages. BT TV Big Sport and VIP customers will be getting Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 channels for free.
That brings the latest snooker, cycling, tennis, athletics, winter sports and motor racing to BT TV customers, as well as this year’s Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (2021 edition). It’ll also add to the sports customers can already view such as the Sky Sports channels through NOW TV.

With the Eurosport channels added to the Big Sport and VIP packages, on demand content from Eurosport will also be available from the BT Player, as well as accessible through the BT TV app. Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 can be found on channel 412 and 413. Customers signed up to the VIP package can watch both in HD on channels 435 and 436. If you’re a Big Sport customer, the HD channels are available through the BT HD/Combi HD Add On.
