BT Sport update: now available on Virgin Media

It’s been announced today that Virgin Media has come to an agreement with BT Sport to make their new channels, including ESPN, available to their subscribers.

Virgin Media customers have not been able to watch MLB games since ESPN America ceased to broadcast at the end of Wednesday 31 July. Whilst Sky has been offering the BT Sport package since that point, Virgin Media was still locked in negotations with BT.

These have now been concluded and Virgin Media customers can once again enjoy MLB on their TV screens.   Virgin Media’s press release includes the following pricing details:

“BT Sport will be available at no extra cost to sports fans in every Virgin XL TV home. Other customers will be able to either upgrade to Virgin XL TV, with over 200 fantastic channels or, for £15 a month, add BT Sport – BT Sport 1, 2 and ESPN and all HD variants – to their existing TV package”.

    More confusing statements!! So – here is the simple question, posed yet again – AS EXISTING VIRGIN CUSTOMERS ( i might just add ‘VALUED’ here too seeing as they’re so fond of using the term when soliciting for our hard earned cash) CAN WE BUY A PACKAGE WHICH GUARANTEE’S BEING ABLE TO WATCH LIVE MLB BASEBALL, INCLUDING WHATS LEFT OF THE REGULAR SEASON, POST SEASON AND WORLD SERIES GAMES (2013)?? That is all. I would appreciate a swift response as too much time has been wasted already talking to people at both BT and Virgin, none of whom seem to know their own much-vaunted product very well at all. Thankyou, yours sincerely, Kevin O’Donohoe
