Discounts on Sky Sports as Premier League returns

12 June 2020   By Dr Lucy Brown, Editor

Both new and existing Sky TV customers will be able to add Sky Sports to their packages at discount rates.

With the Premier League season set to resume on 17 June, Sky's early bird offer for new customers offers Sky TV with Sky Sports for £39 per month on an 18-month contract.

Existing customers can add Sky Sports to their package for £18 per month on a 31-day rolling contract.

BT are also offering incentives to customers ahead of the Premier League restart with a half price offer for three months currently available for sports fans.

Sky incentives

The new Sky Sports sign-up options are designed to reignite the interest of football fans as the Premier League resumes on Wednesday 17 June.

With the remainder of the season to play out, Sky has 39 exclusive Premier League matches to air plus 45 exclusive EFL Championship and playoff matches.

They also promise new features in the shape of Fanzone, Crowds and Recap, along with reminding customers of the impending return of other sports such as F1 and golf.

Existing customers hoping to add Sky Sports arguably get a better deal from this early bird offer - while they only save £4 per month on the service, they're only tied into a 31-day rolling contract which can easily be cancelled if an ongoing commitment isn't to their tastes.

New customers have to commit to an 18-month contract, although they get Sky TV and Sky Sports for £39 per month, a saving of £48 on the usual price. There's a £20 set-up fee on top of that too.

BT Sport offers

BT is also trying to woo new customers with a three-month discount deal worth £60 as they offer their Big Sport package for £20 for the first three months of a contract. This then rises to £40 per month for the remainder of the 24-month contract.

Big Sport includes all BT Sport channels and the 11 Sky Sports channels included in the Now TV Sky Sports Pass.

Customers looking to take BT's Sport pack which only includes BT Sport channels can access a slightly less spectacular saving of £7.50 for the first three months of their contract, adding up to a saving of £22.50.

BT also offers a Monthly Pass to their BT Sport channels but this is £25 per month on a rolling contract and hasn't been discounted for this promotion.

BT revamped their TV offer in February as they moved to a flexible system based around Now TV passes and their BT Sport provision.

TV sport and coronavirus

The return of Premier League football will be a relief for Sky and BT who both have sports coverage at the heart of their television models.

Sky were forced to halt new TV sign-ups in March after Openreach limited the type of work their engineers were allowed to undertake within the home.

As restrictions have eased, Openreach engineers are now allowed to undertake non-essential work within properties, but it's possible there may be delays in new installations of all products as customers who have orders outstanding will be at the front of the queue.

This includes TV packages requiring home visits and new fast broadband lines or new phone line installations.
