I agree with Bill i pay more than enough for sport as it is. If it's not going to be a part of the XL package i will not be paying for it.

I haven't got the sports channels so I'm pretty keen on finding out the prices for this.

I'm certainly not paying additional fee for BT Sports. Only way I could get Sky sports & ESPN (only for the rugby) was to pay for XL package, which considering I only watch some sport and freeview channels seems like a lot of money. Broadband is OK but will investigate cost of changing over to BT for everything as I'll need a new phone line anyway.

I have just recieved this email,

Thanks for registering to get the latest on BT Sport.

At the moment we're still talking with BT about how we can make the BT Sport package available to you when it launches this summer.

As soon as we have any news, we'll let you know here.

Don't forget that you can still watch ESPN* on channel 529 and in HD+ on channel 530 until 31st July.

And in the meantime, British Eurosport^ will keep you captivated with the Tour de France in July, as well as bringing you extensive coverage of the Athletics World Championship from Moscow and Vuelta a Espana in August.

Kind regards,

The Virgin Media team

Doesn't look like we'll be getting BT Sport in time for the start of the season.
