Here’s How Much BT Sport Will Cost You Now That Sky Have The Rights Instead Of Eir

Sport extra.

It was recently announced that BT Sport and Premier Sport will no longer be free as part of the eir Sports package, meaning eir Broadband customers will no longer get those channels free as part of their package from August 1st.

While those customers will still have eir Sport 1 & 2, Sky now own exclusive rights to BT Sport and Premier Sports in a new package that is being dubbed as ‘Sports Extra’, with BT Sport the home of Champions Cup rugby.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

For existing Sky customers, the Sports Extra package will cost €10 per month for the first six months and €20 per month thereafter. That goes on top of the current price of Sky Sports which is €20 per month for the first six months for new sign ups and €40 per month afterwards.

Non-Sky customers can also sign up to the Sports Extra package separately, without subscribing to Sky Sports, for €17 per month for the first six months and €34 per month thereafter. This is a slight increase on what the same package cost when it was provided by Eir for €29.99 per month.

Sky’s new Sports Extra package will be available from August 1st and customers will be able to sign up online. The package consists of BT Sport 1, 2, 3, ESPN and Premier Sports 1 and 2.
