    Eir buys Setanta & BT sport Irish rights

    http://www.independent.ie/business/e...-34264787.html

    How this affects those UPC/Virgin & Sky? Will Eir be the only platform for BT sports?

    Hopefully they won't apply the old Eircom pricing to this product . . .those old "deals" of €29.00 a month for Broadband and Telephone . . . then €156.00 a month thereafter and a 2 year contract in the small print.

          Eir Sport is now 'Free'* to Eir broadband customers

          *Bill is increased by €8 per month, BT sports included, just download the Eir sport app, those with Sky can also get the subscription channels free via registration

            I wouldn't doubt a company like Eircom to get into expensive sports TV when the hole is falling out of it.

              It's getting into the TV over the Internet business and using sports as the initial carrot for folks (a well tried and tested formula)

                Your partially correct it is over net, but it's still subscription TV, which is being destroyed and losing masses of subscribers

                      It seems, according to that article that

                      "With the partnership between Sky and BT, Sky customers in Ireland will also be able to view Champions League, Europa League, Heineken Champions Cup rugby, Premiership rugby and more via their single subscription while rugby fans will also get Pro14 coverage via Premier Sports."

                          That bit has to be wrong, Eir have the exclusive Pro14 rights in Ireland and aren't part of the deal. Skys press release mentioned every rugby competition except for the Pro14.

                              I just got an email from eir saying that BT sports will no longer be available as part of the eir sports package from 1-Aug-19.
