Virgin Media says BT Sport Europe will join its existing line-up of sports channels, but the cablenet is holding back on how the channel will be packaged.

BT Broadband customers who choose to watch on their Sky service, via the BT Sport App or on BT Mobile will be able to add the BT Sport Pack for £5 a month. This suggests that Virgin Media customers might also be charged a fee. Currently BT Sport 1 and 2 are bundled with Virgin’s ‘big basic’ XL package.

Tom Mockridge, Virgin Media Chief Executive, said: “If the football is on, we’ll be showing it. Virgin Media is still the only provider that offers you front row access to all the live sporting action at home and on the go.”

BT Sport Europe will feature BT Sport’s exclusive coverage of the UEFA Champions League and Europa League.
