Virgin unveils sub costs for Premier Sports

Virgin Media will offer subscriptions to the Premier Sports channel for £7.99 a month from 1st March.

Premier Sports will provide customers with over 1000 live events each year, with the National Rugby League Auckland Nines tournament just around the corner and exclusive coverage coming up from the NHL, NASCAR Sprint Cup, GAA and much more.

The channel joins an unrivalled line up of sports content including all five Sky Sports channels and all BT Sport and ESPN channels on Virgin TV, meaning customers can catch every goal or game-changing try across any of the major UK sports channels.

Virgin TV customers have enjoyed Premier Sports at no extra cost since October 2013, enabling them to watch all 28 Rugby League World Cup matches during the introductory free to view period.

Stephane David, executive director of content at Virgin Media says: “Premier Sports joined our TV platform with a bang last year and brought breathtaking World Cup moments to our customers across the UK at no extra cost. As the introductory free to view period draws to a close we’re delighted to reveal a great value monthly subscription offer, which at £7.99 a month gives customers access to the channel on their TVs and also their mobiles, tablets and online through our Virgin TV Anywhere service.”

Premier Sports is available on channel 551 and can also be streamed on Virgin TV Anywhere, the entertainment service for mobiles, tablets and online.

The channel will continue to be available to Virgin TV customers at no extra cost until 6am on 1st March, after which point a subscription will be required. From today, Virgin TV customers can set up a subscription to Premier Sports, which will become active from 1st March, to ensure they don’t miss out on any stellar sporting moments.
