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”.
